The great thing about winter in UK is that , at some time each day, you get warm! Woke to see sun but thick frost on the Boomer windows, in a lovely warm house. Another chance to look at "The Family Tree"over brekkie. Then set off for Stourbridge, where John had arranged to buy a new air compressor. Duly fitted new compressor.

... Saw memorial to the composer Elgar, who was born nearby. (His birthplace museum shut for winter.) The cathedral is impressive, with lovely crypt. This building, the third on the same site, was built in 1084. We saw the tomb of King John, and of Prince Arthur. It also contains the remains of St. Wulfstan and St. Oswald.

At this point, Pete mentioned that he hadn't brought a map. Fortunately Jenny had, so we planned a route and then attempted to follow it.
