Winster is a very nice village

 I didn't have time for a full explore of Winster, but from what I saw I think it would be lovely to live there. Here are a few pictures. Lots of greenery and flowers in front of the gardens, and down the sides. This footpath has been transformed with a lot of interesting pot plants on both sides. I think it is someone's private entrance to a garden. 

Just around the corner is this fabulous patio garden. The owner was pottering about and I couldn't resist stopping for a chat. This is the only space she has for a garden and she has certainly turned it into a little bit of paradise. She said she often sits outside and chats to anyone passing. 




The village shop has a queue waiting on the pavement outside. There is a table in the doorway acting as a counter, preventing anyone from entering. Tell the assistant what you want and it will be brought out to you.

It was a short walk through Winster as time was getting on. Worth another look another day. I went down the road past Bank Top Farm, across the fields, and picked up the Stunstead Lane track back to the camp site. I came down that track there and was faced with a group of cows gathered by the gate. The grown ups were on one side of the gate and the three youngsters were on the other. Steady does it, walk carefully to the side of them and over the stile which is just out of the picture. Don't spook them, don't frighten them, no bother. They weren't interested in me. 

So that's it for the Derbyshire pictures this time. It's such a big county I will probably go back again. Maybe choose a different camp site, and walk another area. 

Thanks for popping in. Toodle pip.  ilona

  2. I do so wish I enjoyed gardening when I see photos such as these. Have you seen the Rainbow Garden In Accrington FB page. The owner has upcycled everything in it and think it might be to your taste with all it fab colours. Arilx

  7. I love it when someone makes a garden out of an empty space, whether it is with raised beds or lots of pots, that lady's garden is beautiful. And doesn't shopping in this way, as we do here in Garstang in some shops, remind you of years ago when the shop assistant fetched and carried everything you needed while you either stood or occasionally sat at the counter.

    1. Small village shops reminds me of Open All Hours. We had one where I lived as a child. You had to wait until Mr or Mrs Walker was ready to serve you. Mum used to send me with a note to pass to Mrs Walker only. That was a bit embarrassing when there were other people in the shop.
