Canons Ashby


We have visited this old place before however can find no log of it anywhere. This visit was done on a scorcher of a day so we took a picnic and drove along the back roads in Northamptonshire . You can visit the house on a timed ticket but are free to visit and walk along the gardens at your pleasure, there is also the Gift shop to help take cash from your pocket.

Lyveden New Bield


On a sweltering day we decided to go for a cruise around Northamptonshire and have a look around the villages . We first stopped off at Pitsford reservoir and it looked promising for a walk until we encountered a massive flood of what look liked Effulent seeping across the pathway, we turned back and set off again. We ended up near to the historic town of Oundle and found this National Trust house on the Map - Please click this link.


Staines to hampton Court

The Ferry across the Thames

This was a great 12 mile hard walk in 30deg heat along the river thames from Hampton Court to Staines. We drove down to Hampton Court Train Station and parked there, its £6 on a weekend you can pay using Ringo on your Mobile Phone. To get to Staines took a bit of planning and for this we used the Great App Citymappe, this will plan all your London area journeys by Bus, Train, walking etc. Please Click this link to View page.
