Hello. I seem to be picking the right days to take a walk at the moment. Today is cold and dull so a day indoors, yesterday started sunny so time to go out. The River Ouse meanders through Goole with footpaths running along both sides of it, so I parked in Goole and set off towards Hook.
I prefer curly rivers rather than dead straight canals, the only thing is you have to make sure you are on the right side of it because sometimes there are not many bridges to cross over.
Half way between Goole and Hook is this park. The bank alongside the river is built up so rather than being dead flat there are lots more features to view.
The river does a u turn at this point and goes underneath the M62 motorway.
I don't know if there is anyone up there in the control tower watching me.a bit more information about it.
Now with the river on my left I continued along the bank. Now it's make my mind up time. Check how much time I have left and work out a suitable distance which will get me finished by around 5ish. Turning right along a track towards Asselby.
Reaching the road in Asselby I turned right to Knedlington. This is Old Hall, a four bedroom property and a grade 2 listed building. It was previously for sale in 2013. I didn't see any signs of life, so I wondered if it was sold.
Don't you just love the dark pink colour of these blossoms.
I love quirky houses and gardens. The occupants clearly love flowers and colour. All artificial except the green bush. It's right next to the Minster so everyone sees it.
I'm off to the WI in Reepham near Lincoln tonight to listen to Jordan Cox talking about money saving. Looking forward to it. Here he is on the BBC website.
Thank you for popping in, we'll catch up soon.
