Photo-a-Day (Monday, 22nd October, 2012)
Out for a ride
A beautiful picture with lovely warm golden tones - and isn't it great that this gentleman has a level access to enjoy a very pleasant ride. Gives a whole new meaning to the 'Autumn of our lives' Well done yet again Dave.
Both yesterday and today, great photos. Maybe they should rename the town Goldborne.
Another beaut photo Dave and the elderly gentleman just adds to the golden factor. A golden time of year and a golden age for the gentleman. He is totally emmersed in his surroundings as am I, cheers
Derek on some old maps the name is actually spelled as Goldburn and Goldeburn.
The name Golborne derives from the Old English golde and burna, and means "stream where marsh marigolds grow". The earliest settlements in the village were on banks of the Millingford Brook- hence the name of the village being taken from a water course where calendula grew. Golborne has been recorded in ancient documents as Goldeburn in 1187, Goldburc in 1201, Goseburn and Goldburn in 1212 and Golburne in 1242. Golborne and Gowborne were 16th century spellings.
Superb shots, yesterday and today. Really looks like winter won't be long.
Cyril Very interesting. Where did you find all that out.
Lovely photo, Dave, made all the more interesting with the gentleman in it.
Thought at first glance those were golf clubs on his buggy and said to myself ..."good for you matey" !!
Super picture again.
ann21, I copied and pasted it from off wiki, but I have seen the old names of the town on maps, I originally thought the name came from the colour of Millingford Brook which was an orangey colour.
