Let's See Where the Road Takes Me....

Good Morning!

It's a little chilly this morning, but still a great day.

On Tuesday I decided to take myself off on a jaunt around the countryside. I'm very lucky, as living in the North of North Lincolnshire {or to some, South Humberside, but that's a whole different story}I'm actually in the countryside, and also it's nice and flat so no humongous hills to climb!

I took a short drive to Kirmington, as I'd heard from a friend that there was a lovely walk on one of the public footpaths, and I thought I would be able to get some good photographs. In fact I found three or four footpaths, so I'm not exactly sure which one my friend was on about, but still I wasn't disappointed. I took the one that led me into Kirmington village.

This is the 'Marrowebone and Cleaver' - what a great name for a Pub! They serve great food and the welcome is always very warm.
I just love finding things like this! What a little gem. I have no idea what it is, but I love the rustiness and character of it. You would think that living in the country I would come across things like this all the time, but no!

This is the church in Kirnington. What a beautiful sky!
And finally some flowers from the church yard, what a gorgeous sight!

Well, I hope you've enjoyed our stroll around Kirmington as much as I did...I plan to do it more often! x

Kirmington is a lovely village, and has a special place with me because it is where I went to Primary School. I visited the school the other day, and they have under 30 pupils in total at the school which includes the nursery.
Of course Kirmington has also been made famous by the lovely Guy Martin of The Boat that Guy Built fame.
Hope the Curds are well
