We spent the weekend at Branston Hall Hotel, it was not our first visit, we went before a couple of years ago, read about it here. Again we had perfect service, accommodation, and food.
We were not able to walk the grounds they weren't flooded but the grounds were very wet.
So we went into Lincoln
From the car park the cathedral and castle.
From the walls of the castle,
I love all the roofs all different
Looking along the walls and beyond
Nothing like what they had on display today
Inside the castle walls there is a prison and chapel
The men sat inside these booths, all they could see was the preacher
the woman sat at the front on benches.
A female cell, these bunks were removed in the day
The Cathedral was stunning, they had wood carving showing the life of Jesus, we also found the Imp, which I remembered from a previous trip over 25 years ago. .
We wanted to go to The Work house, Southwell but it is closed in January, but hope to get to see it on another trip.
Saturday afternoon was spent in front of a huge fire, I finished reading The Saffron Trail, Rosanna Ley, another good book, the ending a bit predictable, I will start The Angel Tree, Lucinda Riley next.
It was lovely to spend time with hubby, we already knew the hotel was good, I am scared to weigh myself for a few days, their meals were fantastic, all local and fresh items, I did not each lunch whilst we were away, but I know my waistline has grown.
