A Grave Incident

1 comment

Today was forecast to have sunny intervals. I'm hoping that at least one of those intervals will be longer than 5 seconds as we have decided to re-visit Shrewsbury using our little train. We came out of Shrewsbury Station and up some steps on to a high level walkway which took us over the railway […]

If at first you don’t succeed …

Tuesday 12th September 2017 This is another late report from an outing we did about 5 weeks ago. Unlike the previous blog post this is not accidentally late. I just haven't got around to writing it until now. In fact going on to the Blog to write this was when I spotted that my previous […]

Castle to Canal

Who's a silly boy then? We did this trip at the end of July and I duly wrote it up and I thought that I had posted it on the Blog – but no, I had forgotten that important bit. As you can see I have rectified that mistake and here it is in all […]

Moor and More

August has been a dismal month. Cloudy and cool a lot of the time and you would never have guessed that it was supposed to be summer so on the very few occasions when the sun did appear we jumped at the chance to go out somewhere. About 16 years ago around the time that this web site […]

Nature’s Kaleidoscope

If you don't like gardens, flowers or bright colours look away now! This is Hergest Croft Gardens in Kington, Herefordshire. These are mostly Rhododendrons and Azaleas so you'd have to go at the right time of year to see these in blossom but wouldn't it be worth it? It certainly was to us. There are […]

We drove the 2.5 miles from Pembridge to Eardisland and, as in Pembridge, we crossed the River Arrow again although, this time, it was on the far side of the village for us. The bridge dates from around 1800. Once again there is a free visitors car park on the main road through the village almost opposite […]

There is an area in Herefordshire known as the Black and White Villages and there is also a Black and White Villages Trail which is meant for motoring not walking. We last visited about 12 years ago on a day trip from Ludlow and the results from that are already on the web site. That previous visit […]

March through the Arch

1 comment

This is the arch that we are about to march through. It was a lovely day and this is only a 40 minute drive from home so, having parked the car, here we are. We march through the arch and after a short while we turn and look back at the arch from the inside. […]

The Other End – Day 4

1 comment

Today is our last day in Swansea and we wake this morning with wall to wall cloud.. Are they trying to tell us something? The cloud wasn't a surprise as it was foretold in the weather forecast and we always belive those don't we? We planned for this so it was going to be museum day. […]

The Other End – Day 3

1 comment

Wake up. Draw curtains. Wall to wall sunshine again. Whoopee. Another nice, relaxed breakfast. Today we are going back to the bus station and catching the same bus again but we are going a little farther this time; a 20 minute journey. We alight at the first bus stop after the bus turns away from the […]
