Hi Barry. What a wondreful site and GREAT photos. I have lived in Japan for the past 30 years although I was born and brought up in London. I spent a few years in Somerset during the war as an evacuee and your site and photos brought back happy memories. I consider the West Country and Somerset in particular to be the most beautiful area in the world and I have been to quite a few places ! Your site has given me inspiration for places to visit when my wife and I retire later this year. Thanks again

Great pictures! I was just on Exmoor and Dunkery Beacon in the snow! Wonderful!
What a fantastic site! We're holidaying in Suffolk soon. I feel your pictures and descriptions have whetted the appetite beautifully. I'm really quite excited after seeing these lovely towns and villages.
As a fanatic of medieval subjects, this site is the BEST photographic "journal" of medieval buildings and structures that I have seen on the Internet! I view these images while listening to medieval and Shakespearean music, and find myself going back in time to those days. These photographs are nice size, and very detailed and clear. The information for each structure and town is perfect for those who wish to visit, and can obtain the necessary details beforehand. I will never tire of looking at these images. Until I can make the trip to England, this site comforts my heart, and mentally takes me to this beautiful country.
I was brought up in Maldon & went to nurse @ Black Notley Hospital @ 21. Then lived & worked in the US for 6 yrs I now live in Yorkshire... But of late am really missing Essex especially the bleak wild marshy areas... I was fortunate a few yrs ago to stay with a wonderful friend who lived in Tollesbury nr the mud flats! Sadly most of my fathers family have gone but I do have a cousin who we are visiting soon who lives nr Manningtree.. My father gave me the book about the marshland & smugglers etc., I also have happy memories of Mersea Island and Sunday school trips there.. Funnily enough have visited London more since I have lived in the North than when only 48 mls away... Thanks so much for your most interesting site Have sent to friends world wide....

I just spent several hours looking at this wonderful website with practical information and these beautiful pictures and it has helped me quite a bit to plan my excursion to Great Britain. Thank you so much for sharing your journeys.
