Today was our big travel day – cross England from East to West, so not too much in the way of photos. We left Canterbury in SE England in the morning and headed back to London’s Charing Cross Rail station. Then humped the bags downstairs to the tube to go across London and humped them upstairs at Paddington Rail station. Just no way around it, if you want to get out to the Cotswolds – and for Celia that was a must see.


Paddington Bear vs Wenlock and Mandeville – no contest!


on the way to the Cotswolds: destination Moreton-in-Marsh


Moreton-in-Marsh street scene (next day actually)


Moreton-in-Marsh: Redesdale Arms, very nice room booked at last minute. Celia thought it was a nice room; when we found out there was free sherry at welcome we thought it was a very nice room.


Today’s PremierPub – the Black Bear pub in Moreton-in-Marsh. they have a blackboard outside the front door. It says” thank God. football is back” guess some of the local footballers were not Olympic fans.

Today’s Pint: the locally brewed Donnington Bitter, not bad.
