Caistor.

The small town of Caistor sits high up on the Lincolnshire Wolds, an area of exceptional beauty.  In recent years the town has undergone a lot of renovation work and is now a really pretty little town, well worth a visit.  In 2011 it was voted as the best kept small market town in the "Lincolnshire best kept village and small towns competition" 

                                          These photographs were taken in August 2012.

Caistor Post Office with the 2011 winning plaque proudly on show.

Mick's Chippy, I had some lovely fish & Chips from here!!

King & Sons, local butchers shop.
Closed as it was half-day, a tradition no longer retained in larger towns but something 

I remember fondly from my childhood. 

Situated just off the Market Place.
Formerly known as the "Sessions House" it was
erected in 1662.
Leading off the Market Place is this pleasant row of well maintained houses.



A pleasant view along the High Street.


The old Fire Station in Caistor. Dated 1889.

Above the door of the Fire Station, badly weathered but just  about readable as
"Fire Engine" 1889.

There are many natural springs in and around Caistor.  This one is "Syfer Spring"

A pleasant day to enjoy the sun whilst taking a rest and a pint.

An unconventional view of the Market Place but one that appealed to me.

Leading back to the Market Place.

The Market Place reflected in a window.

 For the photographers amongst you, these images were all taken on my Panasonic DMC FZ150 camera.
I also use a Canon EOS 400 SLR but find the FZ150 bridge camera lighter to carry and far more versatile.
