PRESTON. Lunch & An Autumn Stroll

Here in the UK the clocks have gone back so that means Autumn is sliding by ever faster and Winter, icy claws at the ready, is stealing ever nearer.

Where I live in the North West of England I’m lucky to have really good transport connections into North Wales, particularly by rail along the coast through towns like Rhyl, Prestatyn and Llandudno. The weather had been doing its usual see-sawing between excellent weather and awful but the forecast suggested that there was going to be an improvement for a few days so I took a chance and booked myself […]
