We started this day by finding Judson headstone in Wilsford

Tony (looking pleased with himself} with ancestors Benjamin & Sarah Judson

Now in Ancaster where we found this headstone. There was a note to say that the church would be open in the afternoon so we rearranged our day and as we arrived in the afternoon we met the lady with the key! Read the notice. Very keen on Health & Safety!

Edward & Sarah Judson

The Romans were here and left behind this carving of goddesses. Ancaster was a Roman town at the junction of Ermine Street and King Street.

Do you remember this from your geography lessons? The River Trent once flowed eastwards through the gap in the limestone ridge.
Interesting note from 1200

Now to Caythorpe:

Lincolnshire is RAF country, Cranwell is not far away This church has several RAF plaques

Cute cross stitch.

Passed through Leadenham the start of my quest:

St Swithun
A definite air of neglect
I need to research Sargeant G Judson

On to Fulbeck, to The Hare and Hounds for lunch.

Hough on the Hill

Love this name Graffoe perhaps the Gruffalo has visited?
Lovely little High Street with many shops & good cafe.

Allington next, a pretty church but closed.

Westborough:

Overgrown not easy to search! Interesting difference, many graveyards are carefully tended.

Dry Doddington. A beautiful setting and beautifully kept.

And so passing Belton House we returned to Wagtail and tried out our new toy! An excellent purchase! Just plugs in to Henry’s external socket.
