Welford Village

 This morning we had our morning walk up the hill to the top of the village, the photos were on the return back down.





The new replacement Postman Pat, the original had been carved from an old tree stump in the ground, but had started to fall apart.



The Pocket Park is well established.





After lunch I took out the led lamp I fitted inside our old tunnel lamp, and refitted the quartz halogen bulb, I should be able to see in tunnels again! ðŸ¤“
