The village of Waltham.

 Waltham is a large village and civil parish in North East Lincolnshire, England. It is 4 miles (6 km) south of Grimsby close to the suburb of Scartho

Until recently we haven't been venturing into the town but decided this day to try a short walk around the village of Waltham.  I got a bit carried away and took quite a few photo's, here's just 23 of them.

This pub has the best display of hanging baskets in our area.

A view across the village green.

On Remembrance Day people gather here.

Agapanthus & Hollyhocks.

These people gave me their permission to include them in my photo.

The Kings Head.

An old cottage, possibly the oldest dwelling in Waltham.

The High Street.

On the edge of Cleethorpes.

 I live very close to the edge of Cleethorpes, open farmland is only a few 100 yards from our house, "as the Crow flies".  We took our Suzi for a walk on the local farm where the crops are ready to be harvested.

The Italianate tower visible just right of centre is the "Dock Tower" which stands at the
entrance to Grimsby's Commercial & Fishdock and is a local landmark.

A cerial crop ready for harvest.  The old, almost dead tree, has stood in this field for as long
as I can remember.  It would be convenient and very easy to remove it, but the farmer chooses 
to let it remain and work around it.

This lane goes to the farm.

The large, mown field is where Car Boot Fairs regularly take place in the summer.

Just after we'd left this Tractor & Baling machine arrived, I wasn't able to get back in time
to photograph it from the front so made do with this image of it heading for the farmyard.
