A Wander Around Welford

After a restorative Guinness at The Wharf, a late afternoon walk into Welford village for some loo-rolls meant crossing the nascent River Avon and the county boundary back into Northamptonshire. A pleasant village with lots of different styles of houses, we were particularly taken by some barn conversions up the hill, with a superb view over the area, and some mediaeval ridge and furrows just out the back.

The church had some odd gargoyles on the tower.

And SWMBO met an old friend. No idea what he was doing there. Normal for Northamptonshire perhaps.

Safely back in Leicestershire, dinner at The Wharf proved suitably amenable, but walking back to the boat in the dark, it was definitely getting pretty cold, and clearly the nights are seriously drawing in. Winter draws on…
