Following a recent posting of images from a brief visit to Woodhall Spar, I returned to take another look at this interesting town.

|The main shopping area is very pleasant, especially on a nice sunny day such as this.|
|A novel advertising prop outside the butchers' shop. Not even locked up!|
|A good use of this old K6 kiosk, one side for making calls,|
the other side is an ATM (cashpoint).
|I took this to show the old petrol pump, probably from the garage previously shown,|
that is down to the left of the cafe.
|Not sure if this is a repro or wether it did indeed come from|
|Memorial to the men who fought at Arnhem. It's in the grounds of the Cottage Museum.|
|Once a grand faced to the entrance of The Spa and Rhematism Clinic.|
|The Spar & Rheumatism Clinic that gave Woodhall it's full name. People came from far|
around to "take the waters". It has been closed now for many years.
|I posted some pictures of The Kinema in a previous post but couldn't resist a few more!|
|The Foyer as you enter the Kinema.|
|An old sign post in the woods approaching the Kinema, the|
Rheumatism Clinic is long gone however.
|A view along the main street in Woodhall Spar.|
|Looking back in the opposite direction.|
|The memorial Garden to 617 Squadron. The famous "damnbusters".|
|Memorial showing all the capaigns the 617 squadron undertook.|
|617 Squadron memorial, note the distinctive emblem showing the bursting of the dams!|
|Seen outside a shop, I can't resist these little cameo scenes.|
|Another view down the main street.|
|The bowling green in Jubilee Park.|
