Spalding II: from the Town Bridge south
I was back in Spalding yesterday. It was market day and the place was busy with shoppers. Apart from a few bargains I was in search of architecture, Georgian architecture to be precise and Spalding is not a place to disappoint even if its charms are not at all apparent. Persevere. The river Welland flows through down and both sides of the river are lined with Georgian houses and, below the Town Bridge, warehouses. There is a lot to see, so I have divided the town into two. This post concentrates on what is above the Town Bridge with the exception of Ayscoughfee Hall which deserves a post of its own.
