One report for Penny & Jenny


We had a stroll around the village of Lilbourne and came across an 8th century church – All Saints. (see )

Of course the main reason we go to Lilbourne is for the house-that-turned-into-a-pub, the Head of Steam. No food, just a brilliant little pub serving lots of real ale. One such ale was called “ What the Foxes Hat?” an odd name but not one to shout too loudly or indeed too quickly!


There’s a Motte & Bailey, in fact 2 of these! One was a siege castle. All very interesting. Our own village of Yelvertoft also has an All Saints church but much later – see  and

There’s quite a few ancient churches around – esp one at Ashby St Ledgers:

Plenty to entice you over here?  Cheers
