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 […]

Carnival Capers

The last Saturday in August every year sees the Knighton Carnival. I realise that you will all be disappointed not to have been able to attend so we were there for you. The various groups and floats assemble in or near the old Market Place so we went there first. There were many colourful groups together with a […]

The Other End – Day 1

No comments

You may remember that in posts in the recent past I have mentioned the 'Heart of Wales Line' which is the railway that runs through our town, Knighton, and that we have twice travelled to Shrewsbury on it. We decided that it was time to visit the other end of the line which is Swansea. The […]

Sun, Signals and Sabrina

We have been to Shrewsbury twice before and I have blogged both trips as you may remember. On each of those occasions it was cloudy but today was forecast to be sunny intervals. We have experienced forecasts like that before where we have two minutes of sun followed by two hours of cloud so we […]

To England and back

It's now early March and we haven't done any 'walking' this year yet. That doesn't include any usual walking like going to the shops and the walking about one does during normal activites. It was sunny this morning but it is forecast to rain heavily this afternoon so the time for a walk is now! This […]

Medieval Mischief

1 comment

First of all let's set the tone of this trip before we do anything else. This little alley dates back to medieval times so, knowing that, if you think that you know why it was given that name then you are probably right. They were fairly blunt about names at that time so we will […]

Up and Down and Round and About.

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 […]

In the week starting Monday 18th July we were going to have the builders in only on Monday and Friday and as the weather forecast for Tuesday was sunny all day we did the obvious – a day trip out. We thought that Hereford would be a good place to go because it's only an […]
