Swanage railway - preparing Eddystone

Re-watering Eddystone before the trip to Corfe Castle
The pipe was incredibly leaky due to a large split

Uncoupled and ready to head to the front of the train.

Kingston Lacy - Interior

Photos were allowed inside the house - but without the flash.
Luckily my small Panasonic Lumix was up to the job.
My reward for trailing round behind SWMBO while she read every single word of every single information  board - twice!

Kingston Lacy

The house is near Wimborne Minster in Dorset and is now owned by the National Trust.
Shame about the scaffolding!
Here's the new Japanese garden.

Square & Compass - Worth Matravers

This is a wonderful pub where the beers are all served from the barrel through a hatch rather than at a traditional bar
Very unspoilt! - brilliant
Newspaper cutting in the bar about the "Farriers Arms" in St.Albans which is my Wednesday lunchtime local - would you believe it?
There's even a free museum at the pub

Somerset Village! (Rickford)

Here's a village in Somerset near Blagdon!
Have just been told by SWMBO that it's Rickford (14/05/13)
We went to a wedding in Blagdon, and this a a nearby village - I wish I could remember what it was called.
Must have been a good wedding reception?
