Photo: Pensioner waiting for his wife at Tesco, with an anxious dog.. I was hoping he wouldn't move at all before I got the camera clicked.
Photo: A photo from the rear of the South St park, with all the flower beds in bloom.
Photo: Some humungous blossoming trees just off Prospect St at the Tesco recreational cut thru.
Photo: The small memorial greenery on Boston Rd, benches strategically placed for Fish & Chips from 'The Mermaid' chippy opposite.
Photo: The Kings Head (or thatch, as it's coming to be called), looking a credit to any town. Not many people aware of the patio area to the rear offering relief in this hot '13 summer.
Photo: This one made me think of the old joke - the guy caught drinking battery acid, so the Police charged him and put him in a cell..
Photo: Carmen's window boxes on Bridge St. visible from street level, but probably more of a welcome sight from her rooms.
Photo: 10am is a flurry of activity on the market, with several buses lining up to interchange passengers. Here the daily London coach (back at 7pm) competes with the Boston and Louth charabancs.
Photo: The Admiral Rodney Hotel holding an easter fun day.
Photo: Winter Sun on the South side of St Marys church.
Photo: The detailed hand painted signs are found all over the Wolds for it's towns and villages. 
Horncastle - chartered market town since 1231, twinned with Bonnetable (Fr).
Photo: This big Muscovy duck is completely at home amongst the shoppers in the Tesco car park.
Photo: Consecutive Small Market Town awards, on the side of the library.
Photo: The local St Marys parish church, always looking for finance, asking for help with the roof.
Photo: The old barn currently for sale, off Jubilee Way being passed by a truck.
Photo: Miami or Horncastle? Pastel cottages, East St.
Photo: This old Georgian square of houses at the bottom of Queen St include this former corner shop and licensed premise. The tall chimney is of Tudor design, made for burning charcoal or wood on a smoky cool fire, not the Industrial Revolution pit coal.
Photo: The Trinity Antiques Centre. I helped lay the base for the bench, and there's no one under it, as far as I know. Antique prams amongst the display.
Photo: Horncastle Ramblers memorial bench on the River Waring bank.
Photo: Zebra crossing at dusk outside the Town Hall on Boston Rd.
The Council offices out on South St., but moves to online, paypoint and post office payments pulled the rug out from under the office side. A large hall has hosted many antique fayres and is doing so again. A nice interior image of the main hall room:
