Trips over the last 3 monhts

Hello Everyone

No blogging done over the last few months.  But now the weather is horrible I decided to look through the photos of the last few months.  After probably the worst start to a year me and the hubby have had, we were going to go away just for a night and that day my hubby lost his job so we could not afford or had the inclination to go.  After 5 months he got work and so we decided to go and get our life back on track.
So here are some of the photos from our weekend away.

The view from the farm road to Winwick in Northamptonshire

Very soon this may not be the view you see as there are plans to put up some wind turbines

When you get to the village there is a beautiful 13th century Church.  It has some very beautiful windows, it is a wonderfully quiet and peaceful place to be and collect your thoughts.

At the top of the village road there is a set of gates and they hide the entrance to Winwick Hall.
The gates are very large and impressive but beautifully made as well.
 This is what they are hiding, Winwick Hall.  I like this building as it is such a surprise to find this in the Village, which also has a Manor house as well.  I may need to find out some more information about both of them.

The gates are attached to a Crinkle Crankle wall, I have never found another wall like this anywhere.  Maybe you know better?
Here are me and Si after our walk and feeling very relaxed.

Now we just have to get Christmas finalised and then we can start next year on a high.

Hope you like my photos, please comment.
