Some photographs from my cycle ride this morning....
Daffodils by the roadside as I entered Bassingbourn
The mini-spire is not a church but the old school.
Old houses in Bassingbourn
A field of sheep
an unusual sight in this mostly arable area.
The brook at Bassingbourn
this was the lock-up where miscreants were detained
till they could be formally charged.
The memorial to the men of the RAF and USAF
who were killed while serving here during WWII.
My uncle was stationed here but survived the war,
which is just as well otherwise I'd be short of several cousins.
Today the skies are peaceful above the fields where the airfield once stood.
A lone runner passes the blooming Blackthorn hedge.
The church at Guilden Morden.
I had quite a conversation with the 84 year old lady
who was cleaning the church in readiness for Easter.
Colourful cottages in Ashwell.
Plant pots on the doorstep.
Ashwell has its own little museum.
It's on my list of places to go one day -
not a very ambitious bucket-list I'll admit!
Church of St Mary the Virgin, Ashwell.
The Zoar Strict Baptist Chapel in Ashwell.
In Ashwell village.
The wide skies of Hertfordshire.
