Churchyard walk

We’ve just announced the launch of a new guidebook to St Nicolas’ churchyard there at 2.00 p.m. on Midsummer Day (Wednesday 24th June), the time and date chosen to suit the Grimsby Telegraph.  I’ve just collected it from the producers, my old colleagues at CPO Media. 

It is a sixteen page booklet designed simply to enhance a clockwise walk around the building by pointing out features at fourteen stopping points on the way.  As such it gathers up most of the things I’ve found out one way or another over the years, many already featured in this Blog.

We are grateful for the Freshney Ward’s Community First funding which has enabled us to do this and several other things including the removal of the self seeded ash which blocked the view of the church from the road.

My new ambition, following a recent lecture on the Lincolnshire Chalk Streams Project, would be to have a day when we pay the gravedigger to uncover the section of the churchyard through which an underground stream flows through a gravel bed onward (I presume) into the coastal marsh close by.
