Ropsley, Scotland and the Humbys, 18th December 2016

Starting at The Green Man in Ropsley, Phil's walk took us to Scotland (actually just a Lincolnshire hamlet) and across remote countryside and arable fields to Great Humby, the former seat of the Brownlow family until they built and moved to Belton House. There remains a tiny chapel, dating from 1754. Nearby Little Humby has old stone houses flanking a green and a Manor House dated 1631. Ropsley was the birthplace of Bishop Richard Foxe (1448 1528) who founded Grantham grammar school where Isaac Newton was a scholar. His birthplace is marked by a plaque on a former inn close to the Green Man.
