So where was I yesterday? The village of Pollington is not far from Thorne, and close to the M62. As you know I do like villages and open spaces, of which there are an abundance within an hours drive from my home. I found a parking space at the Village Hall, next to the kids playground. There is an information board with a useful map so I could pinpoint my exact location.
I am not sure how I got a hill in the background of this photo. It is all very flat around here.
This way or that way. Follow the signs.Parish website for more information.
I took a track opposite the church along the edge of the fields. Two bulls spotted me. Thank goodness they were completely enclosed in their field, separated by a fence with barbed wire between us. The track itself was so overgrown I found myself wading through waist high brambles and nettles and thistles. There was no going back. I was not going to turn round and walk past the bulls again. I came to a bridge crossing the New Junction Canal.
Look at the size of this canal side cottage. It is called Lock Bridge House.Right Move. Scroll through the pictures, and click on the Virtual Tour video. Some great drone footage there. You will be gobsmacked. How the other half live eh! It is stunning.
I then took the road and tracks back to Topham Bridge. This took me past the Windmill House for the second time.
The first moving boat I have seen. Coming into the lock.
Thanks for popping in. Toodle pip. ilona
