Friday 20th - Sunday 22nd May 2011
A weekend visiting Mum in the East Midlands, including a trip to the rather lovely Belper Arms, the oldest pub in Leicestershire.
The Manor House, somewhere near Coalville. Apparently parts of this date back to the 13th Century. Surprisingly free admission.
Lunch in the Belper Arms - really lovely interior to this pub, definitely the highlight of the weekend!
Taking in some of the low hanging beams and horse brasses.
...and lots of little separate rooms, with well chose furniture.
Not really the best lighting conditions here, but hopefully you get the idea!
Alpine strawberries in Mum's garden.
Apples on the tree.
A rather nice range of pinks and purples here.
