England. September to November 2016

After buying our camper van we did a few short trips in England so that we could get used to her and work out what we needed for a longer trip to France and Spain.

Tewkesbury.

We bought our van from a motorhome dealership in Tewkesbury and spent a day exploring the town. The River Avon meets the River Severn at Tewsesbury and is navigabable as far as Stratford-unpn-Avon.

The large catherdral in the town centre.

There were lots of Tudor houses along the main streets.

Oxford

My hospital appointments are in Oxford where we use the Park & Ride facility. One lovely October day we spent a few hours wandering around the city centre.

Whenever we had good weather we tried to get out and about. We enjoyed several walks alongside canals.

The Birmingham and Fazeley Canal, near Tamworth.

Kennet and Avon Canal, near Malborough.

Woodend, Lake District.

We spent some time with freinds in the Lake District. We had some wet days interspaced with some sunshine when some of the views were lovely.

The hamlet of Ulpha, near Woodend, has a small hall where they have bi-monthly folk- based evenings with a range of artists. We went to 2 of them and thoroughly enjoyed them.
