Situated just three miles from Louth is a small village, Little Cawthorpe.
This beautiful building is the manor house and dates to 1673.

Whenever we pass this pretty little manor house I have to steal a look.
Just opposite it, on a small bank, is the village church. St Helen's was rebuilt about 150 years ago, in red and black brick.
I really like the way that whoever designed the pathway to the church didn't go for the easy option, they decided to make it flow, built in a curve. Red and black brick do not appeal to me, the pathway does!
Right next to the church is the village pond. This area had seven springs and is the source of the Long Eau. At some point it was decided to turn this soggy place into a village pond - and it is quite beautiful. The road is called "Watery Lane", that should tell you everything you need to know about how wet it gets.
It is a beautiful, peaceful place, although I don't think I would like my house to be quite that close to the water.
There are a couple of other interesting buildings which I would like to show you, I will photograph them when I visit the church.
Forgive me, this is pure self-indulgence. I spotted this cute little car in a car park, just a couple of miles up the road at the garden centre.
An Austin Seven.
So cute, so dinky, I could almost have fitted it into the boot of my car.
The sun was shining so brightly I couldn't see what I was photographing, I had to resort to good old point, click, hope for the best. They are not brilliant shots, but at least I got the right car!
