... there before going to bed at about 10.30. Late by our standards.
Monday 19th October
What a day. Up latish & then, after breakfast, Adam took us to the Whitechapel Bell Foundry, the oldest continuously operating manufacturing business in England as it started in 1570.

We got out there and walked up to the famous Greenwich Observatory where the time and geographical standards were hashed out. If you have ever wondered what GMT stands for in relation to time, it's Greenwich Mean Time, and this is the place. We didn't have time to go to the National Maritime Museum or the Observatory that day, but we did walk on ...
