So how do you pronounce that?
Visitors to Spalding in south Lincolnshire usually do a double take when they see the name, ‘Ayscoughfee’, relating to the wonderful late medieval building in the town centre.
Locals naturally all know it’s pronounced ‘Ascoffey’!
Once you get over that hurdle, there is much to admire in this Lincolnshire gem. There are wonderful gardens, monuments, an aviary, a museum and a cafe.
More pictures will follow soon.
