A little after midday, a pleasant sunny spring day in Heighington.
Pleasantly warm in the sun. Crocuses and daffodils were in flower. Snowdrops have been out for at least a month.
Heighington is a village of stone cottages, narrow lanes, lined by stone walls, with tiles on the walls, not far from Lincoln.
If you want excellent pork pies, then visit the local butcher, hidden at the back of the Spar shop. He is famous for the quality of his Lincolnshire sausages.
Butcher and Beast is an old pub with an open fire, or was. It serves food, or did. The menu board outside contained blank sheets of paper. A couple of years ago, the food was overpriced and not very good. It now seem to have improved.
A small stream, Heighington Beck flows through the village, with a disused mill a little way upstream. There was a tea room by the Beck, but sadly this has closed.
