Intrepid travellers most people know that we are not but we have just returned from a real, live HOLIDAY away from home! We spent all of two nights in a hotel of great antiquity and charm in Tewkesbury which is in one of the counties adjacent to ours and involved less than an hour’s drive to get there, and that was avoiding motorways!

I do not intend to bore you with a blow-by-blow account of our doings but I thought some might be amused by a selection of the photographs in my usual quirky style that inevitably ensued. You can, I am sure, provide good captions for yourselves! They were all taken in the Abbey or the town itself except for a climb up the Malvern Hills.
