Hills hoists

Sheffield Manor Lodge

Lodge Ruins

Lavender Labyrinth

Tudor Players








Owl 2


Rowan berries

Yesterday we walked up the hill to Manor Lodge which was having a Tudor Day.

On the way I spotted these 2 rotary clothes hoists - the only ones I've seen in the country so far, they use rope lines still in their small gardens.

The lodge only has one complete building remaining, and the whole area is, of course, steeped in history.

The day was very well done with dressing up and musicians playing music of the tudor times,

around the Lavender Labyrinth.

To get upstairs in the lodge we had to climb up a very narrow winding stone staircase - not for the faint hearted! The building was home to Mary Queen of Scots for 15 years.

It was very interesting watching the lady spinning her wool as they did back in the early days .

Then we watched the falconry display - it was worth going just for that.

We departed Sheffield this morning and went down the 12 Tinsley locks with assistance from a CRT man.

This is a view of the Marina - only very small compared to some of the marinas we've stayed in over the last few years!!

The Rowan trees are loaded with berries and look beautiful.
