Gunby Hall

This morning I read a post by Sue at My Quiet Life in Suffolk which I thought was brilliant.  She wrote about tennis (not interested in that, I'm afraid) but then she gave a list of local places she hopes to visit in the near future.  Sue describes herself as proud of being Suffolk born and bred and she knows her county really well.  It will be interesting to see her reports of the places she visits and maybe if I plan a holiday in Suffolk, to re-read her many posts about local places of interest.
Clumber Park

Well, I'm proud of being a Yellow Belly, - in other words I'm proud of being Lincolnshire born and bred.  I know my county pretty well and earlier this year I made a list of local places of interest which I hope to visit before too long.  

Gunby Hall

Clumber Park

 Elsham Hall Gardens

Thornton Abbey

Normanby Hall

Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve

Whisby Nature Reserve


Baumber Walled Garden.

All these have areas which can be visited on my trundle truck but some have areas which will be inaccessible to me.  Some of these I have been to before, some will be new to me.  I wonder if I can visit them all before the end of the year?


  1. We used to visit Skegness for our annual summer holiday when I was a child and my parents would always visit Gibraltar Point, they loved it there. I remember having a holiday in Cleethorpes too as a child.

    1. I like Skeggy out of season. Maybe I'll add it to my list.

  2. You can do it!!!!

    I believe we actually visited Thornton Abby on our visit to the UK a few years ago.

    God bless.

  3. Wow! It's in quite a remote bit of Lincolnshire, well off the international tourist trail!
