North Thoresby Village.

I visited North Thoresby back in the summer when they held a 1940's weekend.  These pictures were taken today (30th Dec 2017) when I re-visited the village.

North Thoresby is a village and civil parish in the East Lindsey district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated between Louth and Grimsby, approximately 7.5 miles (12 km) from each, and has a village population of 1,068 (2011) with 50.5% of the population being over 60.

The Village Square, mainly deserted today.

I took this at the Square back in the summer 1940's event, nice to look back on.

St. Helens Church.

Previously a Mapletoft Schoolhouse, now a private residence.

Not sure if this is demolition or renovation.

This cottage on the edge of the Square was badly damaged many years ago but, thanks to
the villagers, it was fully restored. 

Most English villages have a Methodist Chapel, some are still in use.  Others are
closed and often derelict but this one at North Thoresby is beautifully maintained 
and still in use.

Looking back from the Methodist Chapel toward the centre of the village
and the Village Square.
