Back to mapping streets

We had a change today and headed out to add Holme upon Spalding Moor. It's a village that is bucking the trend in pubs. Pubs are closing all over the place, but it has more pubs than a village of this size might expect. It is also has a bit of a split personality over its name. The name board that the council put up as you enter the village says Holme upon Spalding Moor, but most of the names on POIs in the village either call it Holme on Spalding Moor (such as the primary school) or just Holme (such as the Holme Pharmacy).

In the fields around the village there was an infestation of mole hills. If there was such a thing as a mole catcher nowadays he'd claim a huge bounty in that area. When we return to complete it I'll try to get a photo - of the mole hills not the moles.
