The Tudor Gate Hotel, Finedon

I was wandering around Finedon on Saturday taking photographs. I had reached what used to be the Tudor Gate Hotel.

A group of youths approached. "Do you know what is going to happen to it?" they asked. "No offence, but you look the sort of person who might be a historian."

I took that as a compliment. I think it is my flat cap.

That reminds me of the towpath walk from St. Pancras to Leicester Sue and I did a few years ago during which two youths who walked in the opposite direction in the Milton Keynes area asked: "Are you explorers"?

By the way, what do you make of Burton Wold Windfarm just up the road from Finedon? See http://www.burtonwoldwindfarm.com/ - Excellent project, don't you think?
