Cosby Doors

Here we are. Back in Leicestershire in the UK to visit with hubby’s ailing father. We can only manage one visit per year and so see a marked decline in our aging relatives. It’s difficult, but as the customs agent reminded me (while comparing my passport photo with my real time face) “age is a privilege relief to many”. (!!!) wow.

May is a truly lovely time to visit England, tho. We took a wander round the ancient village of Cosby last evening.

Cosby is mentioned in the Doomsday Book in 1086, so for sure dates back that far. There suggestions that it goes back even to Roman times because a Roman road (the Fosse Way) boarders the village.

The parish church was built in the 13th century.

And a very pretty brook runs through the village – home to some happy ducks.

The roadside of the Cosby House barn is bit wobbly.

And there are heaps of pretty doors.

Thanks for dropping by. And hope you enjoyed the tour.

    What a lovely place and yes so many door discoveries from one outing.
    Not surprisingly that old church generated a few of my favourite shots in this collection.
    Great post Janet ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thanks Norm. That church has a very nice, peaceful church yard as well. My father-in-law was minister there years ago. Thatโ€™s what drew us to wander round the place. Unfortunately the church itself was locked – sign of the times.
