ASTLEY HALL. People in Glass Houses.

Any of you readers who soldier on with my blog will have noticed that I have a liking for parks and gardens. Astley Hall and its Park is a favourite of mine that’s not too far away from where I live.

CARDIFF. A capital Day Out.

Travel is still on the problematical side so I’m going to take a journey in my time travelling blog back to July of 2019 and a day trip I made down to Cardiff.

Walking those walls it still fascinates a little as to how close the city is to the Welsh border. Stand […]

MORECAMBE. Sitting & Watching the Bay.

Sometimes there’s nothing better than just sitting and watching the world go by, or in this case the Bay. A photo from four or so years ago, it had been one of those October days that surprises you with its warmth and a champagne sparkle of sunshine. I had travelled up by train early in the day and spent my time walking around the resort. Checking up on my favourite […]
