Picture of the Day

Open Arms

The Camera Club’s April meeting saw trees at the centre of the Photoslot competition.  The full list of winners can be viewed on the Camera Club website.  Here’s this month’s winner - “Open Arms” by Sandi Johnson


Peeps round Winteringham - High Tide 525

A postcard featuring 5 views round Winteringham rom more than a century ago has individual pictures no more than 1 inches wide, which explains the poor quality when expanded to this size.  Here’s one of the Haven at high tide, with the boatyard to the right with a large boat in front, and another on the floating dry dock in the middle of the picture.  The other four photos will feature later.  They can all be seen now on the history site.



The Tower Climb took place over the Easter weekend and was highly successful with about a hundred making the climb to the top, and keeping the refreshment team very busy!  Ken was there to capture some of the charm of the annual event.

On this Day in Winteringham

Getting the Needle

NATIONAL SCHOOL. - A novel and somewhat interesting gathering took place in this building in the afternoon of the 18th inst., when the needlework done by the children attending the school during the previous twelve months was brought together, its excellence judged, and prizes awarded by ladies who kindly undertook the task.  The general character of the work was considered to reflect the considerable credit on the children, and on the schoolmistress too, and much interest was evinced in the result.  A sale of some of the work took place, the proceeds of which will be for the benefit of the school funds, and it is hoped hereafter that this sale will be better patronised than it could, perhaps, be expected to be now.  In addition to the prizes above-named a good conduct prize was awarded; and if friends of the school would kindly help, as they have promised, it is unlikely that the authorities may be able to give more liberally in future years than they were able to do now. 


Social in Free Hall.

Winteringham Fact:

Longest ferry service?

Wikipedia claims (from the Mersey Ferries site, on a page no longer available): A contender as oldest ferry in continuous operation is the Mersey Ferry from Liverpool to Birkenhead, England. In 1150, the Benedictine Priory at Birkenhead was established. The monks used to charge a small fare to row passengers across the estuary.[7] In 1330, Edward III granted a charter to the Priory and its successors for ever: "the right of ferry there… for men, horses and goods, with leave to charge reasonable tolls". However there may have been a short break following the Dissolution of the monasteries.

Whilst there is no documentary evidence to PROVE Winteringham Ferry was in continuous use, there are many documents to show that it was in use at all known times for something like 1,870 years!  Where’s Gerry Marsden when you need him?
