To Winwick

Just for a look around. The tea rooms were open, but I arrived a bit late. This is a very small village, with some nice houses. I made my way back using the gated byways.

Extinction events in Ashby st Ledgers

Ashby st Ledgers, seat of the ‘gunpowder plot’ of 1605. I cycled through there yesterday on the way to Daventry. This is the manor house where the plot took shape.

Gets a bit grating. Journey begins tomorrow, when I will begin bringing you more…

I decide after a couple of hours to give it up, and take to exploring my local environment instead. Little Bedwyn and far away… The smell of the meadows fresh in my nostrils, I took a wonder into these…

Get into Stonehenge free

Get into Stonehenge free

That’s it. That’s the title. Get into Stonehenge free. In case you didn’t know. Stonehenge is one of the oldest monolithical worship sites in the world. No-one really knows where the stones came from, (much like Egypt). No-one really knows how the stones were erected. All we know, is that people came here, to this hill and took on a semblance, a vision. Through their shared vision, they drew up a plan…. to draw together some stones. Stones unavailable in…
