Sinnington village - a short walk by the River Seven; Sinnington is a pretty village, but has that empty feel of a place where everyone goes off to work and leave the cottages dreaming by the river.
Plenty of places to walk on the large green and by the river and if I could walk up the hill, up to the church.
The river has a rather languorous feel to it much prettier than our portion of the river Seven, with drooping branches and reflections from the leaves painted into the waters. You are asked to contribute to the upkeep of the green by paying a small sum for parking the car. The cottages by the way before pantiles and slate roofs came into being would have been thatched with ling heather.
I have written about the church before, and note that there are pieces of hogback Scandinavian graves in the walls as well as the Saxon which I wrote about in this blog. Trouble is I need to take another set of photos as the ones I took are not good!
I just love shadowy trees reflected in brown water, the sun dancing in a million sparkles on the slow moving river.
