I'm continuing my strolls around the market town of Louth to find a few less visited spots, this time I'm at Spout Yard.
Spout Yard is a small walled park with toilets, a children's play area and a gallery where local artists have exhibitions. A friend of ours, Ann Harris, was holding an art exhibition there the day I took these photographs. There is a collection of small, attractive houses too.
I can't find any information that explains it's name but quite close by is a row of houses called "Spring Terrace" so the area must have been a source of water for residents many years ago. Also, the River Ludd runs right past it on it's way to the Riverhead.
|Through an archway is the entrance to Spout Yard, this area has several cottage dwellings.
|This is the entrance to the walled garden, a much newer development.
"Spout Yard" walled garden. St. James church can be seen through the mist and the
smaller building immediately in front of the church is the Gallery.
|The River Ludd skirts around the garden.
|Nature has colonised this wall alongside the river.
Over a bridge, out of the walled garden, brings visitors to this grand house.
(Complete with wheely bins!)
|More evidence of nature benefitting in Spout Yard.
In one corner I found some leaf composting bins and this bright letter box (?)
