Photograph of the Week

Photographed in late August 2015 by Rex Needle
The Abbey Church in late summer

The Abbey Church which stands on the site of an Augustinian monastery has withstood wind and weather for almost 900 years and remains a beacon of faith on the edge of the South Lincolnshire fens, the mellow stonework looking its best in the late summer sunshine.
This is one of many photographs of Bourne and the surrounding area to be found
in the Bourne Picture Archive.

 

 

PEEPS INTO THE PAST

The arrival of the motor car has transformed our roads which are now a mass of lines and signs but there was a time when even a solitary vehicle was a rare sight such as here in West Road before it became a residential area busy with traffic.

Photographed in 1920
