On Sunday we had booked to attend the sung service at the Cathedral a short walk over the river. It was very well organised and the first live singing we had heard for over a year. It was a beautiful sunny day for a wander round the city centre afterwards, including Sidbury where great grandmother Flo lived when she met her husband Joe, before returning for lunch, via Bute Villa where my great grandparents moved to from Bolston Rd.
In the afternoon we took a drive to Fladbury, beyond Pershore on the Avon, where we found the path to the spot where I had painted Cropthorne Mill with my granddad in the early 70s. There was time to do a slightly different view.
On the way back we stopped in Bath Road by no 9 where great aunt Pat & Bill lived, and walk by The Limes, 14 Bolston Road where my granddad grew up and 109 Bath Road where his friend Chris Walters lived ( they had consecutive army numbers); Chris Walters was killed on the Somme in November 1916.Read more
