Picnic on Wennington Green

Beautiful summer day again so we took the Model T along the country lanes to the little (pop.178) Lancashire village of Wennington.

We were able to park on the village green and to sit on a bench alongside the river Wenning by the bridge.   We had the place to ourselves.

Curious about this very well built but unexplained walled area alongside Wennington bridge.   The only entry is the iron gate - wide enough for a person or small animal only.   Must get Googling.

Answer - it is a pound and it is a Listed Building:
