    Stratford Upon Avon, England

    September 13, 2017 in the United Kingdom

    An easy day of travel from Pencoed, Wales back to England to Stratford upon Avon. We tried to take the backroads to see a little more of the countryside but still the smaller roads are very busy with lots of trees on the road verges. We headed for some of the smaller towns and villages driving around the town centres to see the usual Church, Town clock, old pubs and ruins. Made for a lot of comedy of me trying to drive slow while Mim is trying to take snap shots between laughs. We did walk around Coventry where we saw Lady Godiva's statue and Spon Street that has had the buildings recreated from Medieval times.Read more

    Coventry Cathedral

    April 14, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    Coventry was a city that was targeted by the Germans in WW2 to be completely leveled to show what the Germans were capible of. However, England was able to break the german code and has advanced warning of the attack. Churchill made the decision to wait to evacuate the city until the last minute so that the germans would not know they had briken their code. Many lives were saved but many lost. This church is the old remaining that was not completely leveled and rge new built next to it. Amazingly the spire remains. This is the 3rd largest spire in England. The sculpture is of archangel St. Michael slaying the devel. It is very detailed and beautiful.Read more
