There was once one house on this plot, now one is almost complete and the other is growing quickly. Great river views.

Further along, next to the marina, another of the gravel lakes has recently been fenced off and turned into a private fishing lake. I think they are all now fishing lakes.

    Can anyone solve the mystery of the Saxton Arms? This pub has been empty for some time now and no sign of development. One would think that a developer would have jumped at the chance of turning it into flats.

    There was a petition in the shops in Gainsborough Green around at one point against Tesco taking it over and turning it into a Tesco Express but not sure if that was ever a serious plan.
