  • Wasn’t there stone work like this on the footpath that rose up from Fleming’s Bridge and progressed to the ‘Old Rectory’ front gates, back in the 1950s? Long white / black cobble stones, engrained with moss. I have come across brief examples of this work in different parts of the country and it always reminds me of Bottesford …

  • Dear Helena, thank you for this information. Having lived in Bottesford for a mere 18 years, I am unable to confirm your memory, though I am sure it is correct. During my time here the path has been paved with diamond cross-hatched dark grey pavers, which also cover the walk way across the bridge. Though thought of as being Victorian, there is no certainty that this is the case, and they could be a more recent feature that were laid down after the old stonework had had been removed. I wonder if any of the long term residents can shed light on the matter? With best wishes, Neil Fortey (ed)
