Battlefield Line Railway

When we last went to the Bosworth Battlefield Centre, the railway which runs past the site was not operating. As we were cruising by we moored at Shenton and caught the train to Shackerstone and back - very good it was too.

Warwickshire Ring - Richard III in Leicester

We caught the bus from Hinckley to Leicester which was nearly an hour's journey and cost us a magnificent £2, to see the Richard III exhibition

This is a painting of St.Albans town centre

Aha! some stained glass!
