Evening Peeps. I promised you more photos from our stay in Hertforshire and here they are. Apart from the weekend we arrived, when the campsite was almost full, this was our view every day. We were parked up in the opposite corner and apart from 2 other 'vans we had this whole expanse of greenery to ourselves.
Below is a piccie of the beautifully maintained garden infront of the office and facility block. Such a beautiful caravan club site in the equally beautiful village of Ashwell. We will definitely be going here again. The only thing to mar it was my poor car breaking down and spending 2 days in the local garage. Still we had the weather to soak up and the boys took a trip into London for a Paralympic event so all wasn't lost.
While the boys were away I took a hobbled stroll around the village and photographed the natural spring which is there. The water was absolutely crystal clear and the local children were enjoying a paddle and a play with their fishing nets.
According to the information board, in Anglo Saxon times a spring was referred to as a 'well' and as the water was surrounded by Ash trees so the village got its name 'Ashwell'.
Also while we were there we paid a visit to the local horticultural show held in the village school and this lady kindly obliged in letting me take her photo of her hard at work spinning.
There were various categories including most unusual vegetables. I am sure there are a few bloggers out there who will have some rude comments to make.....
But the best bit for me was the children's section. Firstly animals made from vegetables...
And then a floral display in a tea cup, again in the children's section.
We love to try and support local events when we are away and this one didn't disappoint.
Back in a minute with a further update, x
