Gloucester cathedral Dec 2017.

Untitled

We booked this trip way back in July because we wished to visit the Christmas markets and also have a look at the Cathedral. At the time of visiting there were large building and conservation works going on around the perimeter and also inside the cathedral itself, however this did not spoil the visit to the cathedral

Eskdale Railway in Cumbria

Untitled

We have visited the Eskdale railway several times and it brings good memories of time spent with Harry & Doreen. It lies in the village of Dalegarth and terminates at Ravenglass on the coast with the line running near 7 miles. Its about £13 .90 for a return ticket and £3.50 to park the car for the day. Watch what time you take your train as the steam engine does not run every time you may get a diesel, check the website carefully. In great weather the journey provides some great views and you will see the Scafell range near to Waswater. I have copied the following from Wikipedia but please visit it if you are in Cumbria it makes for a good day out and little kids will love it

Quarry Bank Mill a National Trust Property. October 2017

Untitled

Without a doubt the best national trust property we have visited. I have wanted to visit this mill for a number of years, and with a nice drive up to Cumbria for a trail race it made a good idea to stop off. On the way to Quarry bank we drove through Jodrell Bank home to the famous radio telescope and I noticed it had a visitor centre so we will have to have a look there in the years to come. Quarry bank is an old mill that was famous for the cloth and textiles it made and played a big part in the industrial revolution
