That Lyveden Look!

Post Christmas, it’s always good to blow away the cobwebs and begin to get back into the routine of ‘keeping active’. With that in mind, Chris and Gill popped round and we headed off to National Trust’s Lyveden. We haven’t been there since August 2011! and blow away the cobwebs it certainly did! In fact it nearly blew the car away!!! Boy! was it windy!




After our healthy adventure, it was off to a Pub for lunch. We had the ever-reliable Shuckburgh Arms in mind, but when we got there it was closed, in spite of the web-site not suggesting any sort of special hours for this time of year (and nothing on the door either!) Bah!

Back in the car then, and back into Oundle, where we parked-up and walked to the Talbot Arms. Although we seemed to be in competition with a local wedding party, we were soon served and tucking into some tasty ciabatta rolls.

Lunch over, it was back to ours for a quick cuppa and a natter before saying our good-byes before we all get together next Saturday for the Theatre n Stratford-upon-Avon. Boy it’s tough being retired!!!
