    ... Today Sissinghurst is also a working farm with cattle, sheep and pigs. The tower built in the 1560s has 78 steps to the top where you get some fabulous views of the gardens. The gardens were created in the 1930s by Vita Sackville-West and Harold Nicolson. Sadly our visit is just a little late in the season so have missed the gardens in full bloom.....I can only imagine how fantastic this could be. Back on the bus for an hours drive to Dover for the ...

    ... 400 years old. It had a fireplace dated 1675. Lunch was a cheddar and ale chutney baguette, with some chips - yumm.

Well, how many buttons does it take to shut down a radio/satnav? It took 30mins+ and even then the display was on in the ...

    ... used in the 1800's.Still as imposing today. We've seen the china museum, tile museum, old tollhouse at the bridge, tar tunnel museum (where miners accidentally discovered an underground spring of natural tar), and we've still got a few more to visit. We donned hard hats and were brave enough to "walk the tar tunnel".
    We've also donned our hard hats when we floated through underground tunnels in a canal barge at the Black Country ...

    As we prepare to leave Ironbridge tomorrow, we are at the point of having seen enough old machines for a lifetime. However, it has been really interesting and well worth it to be reminded of the beginnings of the Industrial Revolution. However, there are ten museums here to choose from, with some inevitable repetition amongst them, so that is maybe a cause for being a bit jaded.
