Photograph of the Week

Photographed by Rex Needle
First signs of spring in the Wellhead Gardens

Weeping willows (Salix x Chrysocoma) are among the first of our trees to herald spring because they start to sprout new leaves early in the New Year, a sign that winter is ending and better days are not far off. Mid-morning sun gives a golden tinge to the branches of this graceful specimen on the banks of the Bourne Eau behind Baldock's Mill that has become a habitat for  wildlife but whatever the season, these slender and colourful branches can be seen cascading over the water and hanging like silken drapes gently brushing the surface.
This is one of many photographs of Bourne and the surrounding area to be found
in the Bourne Picture Archive.

Readers are asked to submit their own pictures to be considered for our
Photograph of the Week feature. Read more.

 

 

PEEPS INTO THE PAST

The railway was once an important link with Bourne and the station was situated at the Red Hall that has survived the vibrations from steam locomotives and rolling stock which ran past the building for almost 100 years.

Photographed in 1920
