As expected, our minds were full by lunchtime and we hardly got halfway round, but we did learn a huge amount of what we should and should not be looking for so, although we didn't decide on anything, it was really useful.
|A view of the Welland Viaduct|
The visit there, all day on Saturday, was made possible by us visiting and staying with Jackie's uncle Martin and Annabel in their house in the beautiful Rutland village of Lyddington, in their renovated 17th century house. Everything in the village is built of stone and many are of a similar or older date and listed, making any alterations very difficult and subject to all sorts of special building requirements.
