Today was beautiful, the shades of colour in Parlington, reminding you of the wonder of life. But in the centre of Aberford gathering at St Ricarius church, were many mourners in what seemed like all the village turning out, indeed the church was full to the brim, a fitting tribute to the sad death of Pru Howson, who died earlier this month. I have known David and Pru ever since I came to Aberford in ’95 and they have always been both kind and helpful. Pru like David was born and bred in the village, and lived her entire life here. She had seen much change over the course of her seventy years, born during the war in 1942, one of the special few delivered at Hazlewood Castle, when it was turned over to a hospital for the period of the war. She was educated at the village primary school and went on to attend Parlington secondary school, which had been created by modifying the army barracks left behind after the army departed in the post war years.

Pond on Parlington Lane

The small fish pond off Parlington Lane, hidden behind the estate wall can be a very ominous place when the light is low on a winter’s morning, or evening. The view above gives that impression!

Above a lovely frosty wistful morning at Parlington, rendered into monochrome with a touch of stylised work, to make it more wintery.

Then at the end of the day, a watercolour like, washed out sunset at Parlington.
