Tealby Thorpe (1 of 2).

Tealby Thorpe is a small hamlet in Lincolnshire.  It has only a few houses and a stream that runs through it.  The stream was once able to be forded by vehicles for quite a way along it to get to the next village but has become too deep for all but farm vehicles.  A short  shallow stretch can be crossed to get to several houses.

Renovated farm buildings on the approach to Tealby Thorpe.

This little ford is easily negotiated by cars being only inches deep.

Further along the stream, my wife and little dog Suzi on the footbridge.

This is at the other end of the stream where the road follows the course of the stream and
was once able to be driven along (I did so many years ago and it was quite frightening then!).
Now, the stream bed has been eroded away so much that in places it can be very deep.

Springtime and the Bluebells are out.
