Ledbury is a small town in Herefordshire, it was mentioned in the Domesday Book and has a large number of timber framed buildings.
In particular the Market House in the middle of the town was built in 1615 and is quite well known.
A nice day and when we are staying at my Mum's, we tend to nip down to Bath. Rally nice for a gentle wander even if we don't 'do' the sights (been there done, that...). Always somewhere nice to eat and interesting shops too.
Never been! Driven past I don't know how many times but never been for a look see. So, we decided to put that right.
We started off at the cracking 'Twice brewed' pub in the village of Once Brewed for lunch. Gill went for classy, but delicious, fish-finger sandwich. I went for the more traditional cheese sandwich.
Then we set off for a wee walk. It was very hot to the extent that even after 2 weeks in Spain we worried about sunburn. To be honest the wall itstolf is not all that impressive. It's basically just a large dry-stone wall. Having said hat, on the rare occasion you might get a nice day, its a great place for a walk.
This is a really cool Millennium project that links the Forth & Clyde Canal with the Union Canal. They used to be linked up until 1933 and this was a landmark project that was supposed to impress.
It is certainly cool and well worth a look see!
This is a giant sculpture/statue thing of a reclining woman just outside the mining village of Cramlington in Northumberland. It was completed in 2012 and is made of 1.5 million tonnes of waste soil from the open cast mines that are just next door. The view below is from the forehead looking down the nose and body.
This will be a blog about my latest shots and what I liked or was trying to do with them
