Easter Holiday early April in 1969 and we're touring the English countryside once again.
First nights stop over - Birkhamstead Common, in the Chilterns, Hertfordshire. Tabitha was behaving beautifully by now, she certainly loved being back home. Can you see what David is doing here... he has a bottle of Fairy Liquid in his hand :-) I just love it!
Woburn Abbey in Bedfordshire.
Doesn't it look beautiful today from Google... different angle from the above photo.
A Helter Skelter at Woburn Abbey... I might have been a bit grown up for a ride on this Helter Skelter at Woburn Abbey, but as a child reading mostly English Literature I'd seen pictures and heard of the thrills and fun but never seen one... on the slide down I was sitting on a soft hessian mat but when I slid onto that really rough door mat at the end, put there to slow the kids up... well let me just say... I wish I'd had long pants on! or held onto the mat I was sitting on.... Whoa!!
The Bullring in Birmingham... nuff said, we didn't like Birmingham much and have never, after two more long term stays in Britain, been back. I guess this is what happens to a city when it's so badly damaged by bombing during WW2, very sad.
Tamworth Castle on the River Tame, Staffordshire.
Worcester Cathedral, Worcestershire in the West Midlands.
