Louth market day mid-July

A trip over the Lincolnshire Wolds to the market town of Louth.

My first visit anywhere this year apart from Market Rasen.

Once Wolds reached, cloudy, cooler, though sun did cone out later in the day.

Do not appreciate how high the Lincolnshire Wolds, until steep decent into Louth.

I alighted near the church, highest spire in England, then headed to the market.

First I look in Louth whole Food Coop. Why oh why so much stock from big commercial companies? Can but this crap anywhere. Muesli excellent.

Previous visits, Louth not busy, even on market days. Today very busy.

Check where I wish to eat, when stops serving, then head to Louth Cheese Shop, it close at three.

I buy twenty pounds worth of cheese, spoilt for choice with their selection of cheese (included half a pork pie).

They know their cheese, sadly not their coffee.

Excellent greengrocer in Louth or was. Today very disappointed with the quality.

Head back to the market and lunch.

I had fancied a bunch of carrots. too big a bunch.

A bakery stall with cakes. Everything on plastic trays, shrink wrapped in plastic.

I order gammon steak, now able to sit in the street. Earlier very busy.

I am pleased to find tables in the street. I had recommended they push for this, close the street, tables in the street.

Whilst waiting for my lunch, pop to a beer stall, pick a couple of bottles of beer.

Gammon steal ok, frozen peas, not quality chips.

I stay and have a cappuccino. Improved from my last visit. Cup size too big.

Whilst drinking coffee, market packs up, van pulls up, we sit looking at a van

it then get a worse. Another van pulls up, sits there, engine running, pollution bad, driver sat smoking.

I have now missed a bus.

I have a wander around, end up at a micro-pub that beer stall had told me of.

Head to bus station on the outskirts of town centre, I vaguely remember where it is.
