Day 10 - 4 To Go!

A travel blog entry by ashbysontour


Charles: With a misunderstanding about breakfast not being included in the room rate we headed down to Ironbridge and set up camp on a couple of benches overlooking the gorge and the bridge itself. A giant bowl of Alpen and Banana was sufficient for Vince and myself but the other three were not content unless their trans fat craving was satisfied. So they tucked into a large pasty, sausage rolls and James even bought some pork scratchings. Breakfast done we headed for ...

South Wales and Coal Mining

A travel blog entry by bstokesdenver

... forward to learning more. One thing we know for sure is that Wales has always been a center for mining and it wasn’t so long ago that coal was king. At its height there were over 600 mines in South Wales. We head for the Big Pit: National Coal Museum in Blaenavon which is now a UNESCO World Heritage site.

A travel blog entry by bstokesdenver

... Queen of England between 1553 and 1558 spent 3 winters here from 1525-1528. By 1811 it was in ruins and was purchased by the 2nd Earl of Powis and the family still owns it.

Brecon, the largest town nearby, is on a canal, and we found a cute café with outdoor seating along it. The young guy who greeted and served us actually knew a lot about the Seahawks and the Super Bowl (that other football game), and said a lot ...

Narrow Boating - Brecon-Monmouth Canal, Wales

A travel blog entry by clive.atkinson


... boats are narrow, they are quite long, enabling us to sleep, cook, shower etc.
We navigated 10 locks, 1 tunnel (400m long) and about 130 bridges. The bridges narrow where the boat goes under making it tricky to navigate a 50' boat that putts along at 3km/hr max, making life very relaxing.
Some photos don't do justice to the scenery and the wildlife! We even adopted a cat for an hour who, being very nosey, just walked on board as if she owned the ...
