South Ormsby

The village of South Ormsby, England, nestles in a little green hollow in the Lincolnshire Wolds. It is a small village, but the size of the church suggests that it was once a little bigger. In addtion to the hall, there is a church, a few cottages and a public house, the Massingberd Arms.

Mud and stud

(Above) The cottages include this rather lovely example of Lincolnshire’s vernacular architecture known as ‘mud and stud’. I didn’t notice while I was taking this picture that my friend and Thatcher, Andrew Bramley, was busy re-thatching the roof. You can just make out his ladder by the chimney!  (Below) an old Victorian school house.
