It seems like it has been a long trip and we’re all a bit worn out right now but then we did pack a lot in to the 10 days. There will be a lot more coming soon but just to whet appetites the trip took in three countries – England, Scotland and Wales – and countless forms of transport – planes, cars, buses, trams, steam trains, canal boats… We went up mountains and down caves, we saw peaks, valleys and dales, we did archery and pottery and we ate a lot of fish & chips!
Here are a few early snaps:
English country view, the City of Warwick from the top of the castle –
Warwick castle – 540 steps to climb the ramparts and tower!
Where Shakespeare was born
Making pots in the Wedgewood factory
Mount Snowdon (highest mountain in England & Wales) and the steam train that got us there
The tram up Great Orme (since 1902)
The beach at Llandudno, Wales
“Full English”, Tesco style
Something Scottish on the way to the castle
Dog cemetery view from Edinburgh castle
Arkwright’s mill at Cromford
On the way to Blue John Cavern – 240 steps down and the same coming up!
Finally, something romantic for the ladies. The place I proposed to my wife almost exactly 9 years ago! Ahhh.
