A Walk through Hartsholme Park in Lincoln..
Here’s a place which reminds me of times gone by, Hartsholme Park. A large reserve in the centre of my city which is home to a large lake and a network of walkways and areas for families to spend time together.
I don’t know why but it has something of a post Victorian feel to it, there are some nice old brick walls and gates and it is easy to imagine that the sick would have been encouraged to spend some time here away from the bustle of city life. I may be wrong but it gives that impression.
It is a haven for wildlife too and I am sure an early morning walk would reveal its residents, the lake is large but there are some nice viewpoints and it’s a good walk around it for the more energetic.
I took this on a very bright day which made photographing the lake difficult so here’s a shot from the top end as it tapers into the shallows.
