828 St Peter & St Paul, Algarkirk
the next church was locked but the churchyard had sheep in it!!
829 St Mary, Old Leake
And on to Gunby Hall
for some reason I've ALWAYS wanted to visit it and I can't tell you why!! Perhaps it's because it is stuck out on its own with few NT properties nearby.... perhaps because for years it had really awkward opening times! But today I was ticking about my 170th NT property.
Gunby was the home of the Massingbird family and I believe was given to the Trust to stop it being knocked down for an airfield (or that's what I thought I overheard!!). The house is also meant to be haunted as one of the Massingbird's shot one of his servants who was going to run off with his wife/daughter?
As we drove back we came across these Hares!!
