Day 321 – Lest We Forget…

It was Remembrance Day last week, but today was the first chance since then for me to pop up to our local Garden of Remembrance to see the poppy wreaths laid in honour of those who made the ultimate sacrifice. Very moving.

Day 167 – Lazy Sunday Afternoon…

Driving through Eccleshall this afternoon I noticed that with a little welcome sunshine, there were lots of folks around. This group were enjoying a drink at one of the many pubs and bars in town…

Day 154 – No Room…

… at the Inn. The Corbet Arms was once a prosperous hotel in town, but fell on hard times and was derelict when we first moved to the area 11 years ago. The front half of the building has been renovated and houses the local Post Office and a small antiques business, but as you can see from this photo, the rear is still far from loved…

Day 153 – Old And New…

This is all that remains of the Town Mill in Stafford. These are from the mill built in 1834 on the River Sow, but it is believed there was a mill here as far back as 1086. The site is overlooked by modern apartments.

Day 143 – Eating Out Again…

After 2 weeks of fabulous food during our 2 weeks in Cornwall, it was back to normal today. However, with no food in the fridge, lunch out seemed a good idea, so it was off to our favourite local restaurant. Halloumi Fritters and salad was the dish of the day and tasted pretty good.

Day 51 – Wheelwright Cottage…

Walking into town today, I was taken with this old cottage. It’s pretty small, and dates back to the early 1800s, and I guess it probably was indeed the local wheelwright’s cottage ‘in the day’. Many of the older properties in town have long since gone, but enough remain to give a sense of history.
