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 […]

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

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 online weather forecast for today was chilly and cloudy up to about 5:00 PM when we would have some sunny intervals for a couple of hours then back to cloudy for the rest of the day. Knowing how completely wrong the online forecasts had been over the past two or three days we decided […]

Two for the price of one! You lucky people! Work on the house is still progressing satisfactorily and this coming week will be a significant stage as the scaffolding around the house is coming down.  We are, however, still managing to make a few trips and this time we did a half day walk followed […]

Clunton and Clunbury, Clungunford and Clun, Are the quietest places Under the sun.  (A. E. Houseman) Of those four places, mentioned by A E Houseman in his poem, we visited Clun. On our outward journey we didn't actually stop in Clun but drove straight through to Clunton where we turned north past Radnor Wood and […]

Is there Much Wenlock?

Is there Much Wenlock? There is actually Little Wenlock! Confused? I'll explain. Little Wenlock is a village, a little south of the town of Wellington in Shropshire, and Much Wenlock is a small market town also in Shropshire. The 'Much' part indicates that it is larger than Little Wenlock. We stayed in Much Wenlock for […]

mTicket to Ride

No, it isn't a typographic error it's meant to be 'mticket'. I discovered something rather useful recently. It is that we can buy railway tickets on our railway line via a mobile phone and after paying for them they are then downloaded and stored on the mobile 'phone. These tickets can then be shown on […]
