There are a number of things going on around the village at the moment various trails for kids to follow during the holidays, (I will feature the walks in another blog) for now I will show some of the places I have written about or am going to blog about on Our World TuesdayFair Mile Hospital my parents worked there for most of their life. I have written a series of blogs on the place.
The old farm entrance to Fair Mile, when the place first opened they kept livestock and a dairy herd and were nearly self sufficient, the original farm buildings left were restored being used for homes and small businesses one of them is a coffee shop
The set of houses here were built on a property that once had a bungalow on it. I did show it a while ago now the houses are nearly ready for occupation
I will end with this picture of the old Phone box where in the past youngsters would be phone their sweethearts and girlfriends now a mobile phone does the same. Th box has deteriorated and is in need of some TLC. The other one at the ether side of the village is now used for a defibrillator but the future of this one is unknown to me. I just home it is restored and put to a good use it would be sad to see it go. That it for Our World Tuesday from me this year hopefully I will be back in the new year with more for you to see. Do have a merry Christmas and lets hope next year brings us all better times.

Beautiful and charming photos. I always enjoy my walks best when the streets are quiet. You are so lucky! Have a grand week!ReplyDelete
Not sure about the lucky bit but at least pleased it is quietDelete
Thank you for your kind words. It is sad to see everywhere so empty. All we can hope for is to keep safe until we can be vaccinated.ReplyDelete
Hope you have a good Christmas and lets hope we do get the vaccination. Take careDelete
Lovely photos and nice places to walk there. Now I'm curious about what kind of work your parents did at the hospital.ReplyDelete
Merry Christmas to you and your family, Bill. May you all stay safe and healthy there.
Love that old phone box. We had them here too, I remember pushing the phone handle down in such a way that you could use it to make free phone calls. Have a good Christmas and stay safe.ReplyDelete
I enjoy these virtual tours. Thanks and Merry Christmas.ReplyDelete
Worth a Thousand Words
Thanks for the walkabout! I enjoyed the story and the photos. I hope the phone box enjoys a meaningful future!ReplyDelete
The old English phone boxes were so distinctive - here in the States they were rather blah. It would be nice to be able to give this one some TLC and a new purpose in life!ReplyDelete
Thanks for linking up at http://image-in-ing.blogspot.com/2020/12/quarantine-christmas.html
Lovely to take a wander with you - car parks empty now there's a thing! I hope they put the phone box to good use too - maybe a mini library?!ReplyDelete
Merry Christmas Billy!
