Saturday, Second Week in Lent

A wonderfully sunny day: spring weather at last.

I walked along the edge of the wolds to the church of Normanby le Wold. It is the highest church in Lincolnshire, at 447 feet. Heavily restored by Fowler, fallen into dilapidation before.

Named Normanby after the Norse rather than Danish community that settled here in the ninth century, with some fine Victorian paintings. We have one from the same artist in Stainton le Vale. What a gorgeous setting and a tonic for depression.
