Beyond the City and Suburbs and the well ordered Park, even beyond the River Marina’s beyond ‘Civilisation’ (with piped centrally heated homes) travelling all of 5-7 miles, there’s another world …
The Mystical River on a Winter dismal afternoon or ‘Spooky nearly in Flood’! Beyond meandering: determined and swollen at the limit of the Ofer – (an old word for Bank or Shore!)
We the subjects, are liable to be called out in better months ‘Shingling’ – thats clearing the banks and possibly finding building material while we work! It’s an old By-law and was enforceable by the ‘Wardens’
Check the Facebook link on the Sidebar for ‘Around the UK Winter photo shares and info!
There are, of course, lots of lovely Pubs, Restaurants and Tea Rooms and Garden Centres with Cafes in the County villages and along the River – Even Museums and County Towns with super shops etc Southwell, Newark, Ruddington, and more in other Counties the River flows through!
They just aren’t in the Photo’s!

Thanks Family, Friends and Followers the Blog, Facebook and Twitter (see the side column) are fun and have evolved over the last three years and kind of keep us up to date!

Stay safe if driving you have taken ‘the pledge’ for the night and are on non-alcoholic drinks till you are home please. It’s important please, the roads are still wintery and you need quick and safe reactions! Thanks.
Side Roads and County Roads are still really icy and without the buses the main roads could ice up again too.
Make sure everyone has a Happy New Year.
Firework Display at Nottingham Castle!
A special Happy New Year to anyone who’s on their own.
