The Road out of Town

all seasons in one day
View Uk Trip 2015 on DeniseUK15's travel map.

The road out of town started this morning when we left London for Winchester. Along the way we saw more shades of green than we'd dream of at home and fields of Rapeseed. The weather has ranged all day from teaming rain, wind gusts and beautiful sunshine in between. We have meandered in drizzle but managed to stay dry. The A4 was wet, between Maidenhead and Princes Risborough the roads were framed with green archways and rolling green meadows and hills and odd little village names such as Bryant Bottom, Great Kimble, Little Worth.... We arrived at The Flowerdews B&B early so visited the town; The Winchester Great Hall, The Cathedral, rambly streets, statue of Alfred the Great. We saw King Arthur's table mounted in the Great Hall and the Military Barracks for the Gurkhas and Royal Green Jackets.
Tonight we will stroll into town for a meal and return for our first night in the Rose Room....

Thank you for the updates! It sounds like you are both having a great time! I am still very shocked that you didn't get into Harrods! I am sure there must have been an emergency brake on the bus? :-)

It sounds so beautiful! I am looking forward to the many photos and stories when you return :) It is nice being able to follow your travels and hear about it as you go too. xx

Jason, I knew you'd have had a 'get me in there' plan....

Thank you Ally, we're glad you are 'with us'...I'm sure though you and Jason could have held Rob down, stopped the bus and got me into Harrod's. Xxxx
