Bradley Village.

 Bradley is a small village on the outskirts of Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire.

We visited it on a dull November afternoon.

St. George's Church in Bradley.

A new  development of houses in a former farmyard.

The view across the fields from the houses.

These houses have been built in the style of barn conversions.
We used to visit this farm in the autumn to buy apples.

Bradley Manor.

Horses in a paddock 

This one thinks the grass is greener over the fence.

Another view into the garden at the Manor.

A Victorian post box.

A grand old house, I was really attracted to the lovely chimney stacks.

A bit of Autumn colour.

This is the main road into Bradley.

  1. David, what a wonderful initiative to build new houses in keeping with the style of the old barns. They look as if they fit in very well. The old house is lovely too and I agree. The chimney stacks are marvellous. I'm not a fan of autumn, but your photos make it all look so inviting. Even the gloomy sky looks great against that warm red brick!

    1. Okay, maybe not real red brick, but a very lovely warm colour. I've just looked at your photos again and see my eyes deceived me :) The horses are magnificent beasts as well. I rarely manage to get such good shots of the ones I see.

    2. Well thank you for both comments Val, always appreciated. Yes, the red bricks are conventional bricks known as "Lincoln Reds", very popular for these sort of rural developments. Autumn isn't a favourite time for me either, it can be lovely but very fleeting. I prefer the Spring with the promise of warmer, better weather to come.
      The horses had quite long, shaggy coats, maybe they know something? Take care Val.

  2. Hell David, good to see that you are getting out with your camera. The village looks interesting and quite colourful, despite the dull day. I read that the Bradley Woods are supposedly haunted. It's a bit chilly here today.

    1. Hi Mike, thanks for commenting. I've not heard about Weelsby Woods being haunted, we used to visit there another. Bluebells in the spring and lots of paths through the woods for walking a dog. We stopped visiting it quite a few years ago when gangs of youths begin to frequent it plus cars were broken into.

  3. Gosh I am behind on blog reading! Lovely to have a catchup and always a delight to see your pictures David.

    1. Well, you have been busy with recent family events! Thanks for commenting.
