    ... Who Will Buy". It is an amazing sight. Our lodgings for the night are about a 15 minute drive from Bath. Tom took us to Limpley Stoke which was a residential locality. We needed Lower Limpley Stoke which Tim would not accept. Eventually finding the Best Western Lower Limpley Stoke Hotel, we find our twin bed room (I think Polly must have booked this one), in a delightful old 3 storey sandstone building with red leafed vines adding to the charm, along with sloping floors ...

    We took a walking tour of Bath today (not a bike to be had!) and thoroughly enjoyed the 2 1/2 hours with a wonderful walking historian. The Romans landed here around 700 AD and started the whole "healing baths" craze. Lots of Spa owners these days owe them a debt of gratitude! If Justin is not all "beered"out from his Denver trip, John found an interesting local one with a story to tell when we get ...

    This morning we left Stratford and headed down through the Cotswolds region to Bourton on the Water for morning tea. Bourton on the Water is the picture-postcard village with the creek, stone walking bridges and lots of hungry ducks. We then headed towards the town of Devizes which is probably only famous for being near Caen Hill locks (apologies to anyone from Devizes). Caen Hill has ...

    From Roman to Regency - but always Romantic

    ... to what was going on at the other tables - mainly just elderly people and tourists treating themselves to an expensive meal. The room itself still holds much of it's grandeur, and I'm sure it would have many stories to tell. The Roman Baths would have even more stories to tell. Whole trilogies of ancient conquering, leisure bathing and bathing for sickness, spiritual awakenings, then ruin. Only for the baths to be re-discovered, and again used as a place to relax and heal.
