          We didn't make it to the Quaker Meeting House in Broad Campden (they're Quakers and Buddhists-- the two sit easily together) but we did squeeze in a walk through town which is de rigeur for any ...

Main thing I remembered was; the Normans came and built a keep, war and new ownership, uprising and new ownership, some more new ownership, and then the Butes came along in Victorian times.

The devil is said to have preached to the Monks of Tintern Abbey from the finger of rock now called the Devils pulpit. After about 10 miles we stopped for lunch at 2.30 pm at a place called Bigsweir Bridge. Not an ideal spot sandwiched between two roads and recently vacated by 2 walkers who appeared to have left ...

That arrived at the train station early so we were able to catch the next train with only five minutes of waiting, which also arrived in good time. All in all, we were in Bath before we knew it. Check out my first view of the city! More to come...
