Between Xmas & New Year we had a day at Market Rasen.  It's a nice little market town and the car parks are FREE!

Town sign showing it's connections with horse racing
and also being twinned with MAMERS, France.

Alleyway leading into the town from one of the FREE car parks!

The Market place.

2 gated alleyways off the main street.

Jossals cafe & coffee shop, reputed to be very good.

The main street through the town.

Lincolnshire is very popular with motor bikers having Cadwell park, one of the top
circuits in the country.

Obviously what all the bikers would
like to be seen in!

Advocate Arms decorated for Xmas.
