Daffodil time

On my previous post, one follower commented ‘I can’t wait for the daffodils’. Well here they are in and around Newton Solney.

Church Lane, Newton Solney

The avenue of trees is Church Lane which once was an essential thoroughfare leading to fords in the nearby River Trent which could have been crossed on horseback. St. Mary the Virgin’s church is the oldest building in the village and was originally a “chapel of ease”, one of eight such chapels owned by Repton Priory in 1271. A “chapel of ease” was one where parishioners could worship to save them from having to travel to the parish church.
