Tuesday, July 12, 2011

On our way to Cheddar this morning, not so early start as we didn't have to drive that far and we decided to take the motorway M4 they call it.The old Garmin got us on the motorway very nicely thankyou. Crossed the Severn Bridge which basically crosses from Wales to England. Motored on to a place called Chippendale, nothing much there so decided to carry on to Bath. drove through the middle od Bath which is just about impossible as there are traffic lights every where and still very narrow roads. We will return to Bath on Thursday and visit some of its landmarks and also because it looks a interesting place to walk through. Decided to carry on to Cheddar where we booked a sight for 3 nights. A interesting drive and what awaited us was the most beautiful gorge. It wonders down from the top of the Mendip Hills for nearly two miles increasing in majesty as it goes, ending near the village. Found the caravan park easy enough and went for a walk to the village.Visited the parish church which dates back to the 14th century. A spectacular building although they had their church bell ringing practice this evening and am a little fed up listening to it. The church is next to the park here so it all came across loud and clear.They also ring every 15 minutes for a short time just to let you know that it is the quarter of the hour. The village itself is a bit touristy but interesting just the same and of course very old. From 13th century to 18th century buildings here and very spread out.
Walked home again after a few hours, prepared some dinner as well. Settled on having a bbq using our disposable bbq we bought the other day. If I had not buggered it all up it would have worked well but the end result was still nice and at least we know what to do with it next time. Have got another 2 to try out with. Bring it on.
Going to Wells tomorrow and also visit Stonehenge.

make sure you check out the actual Baths when you go back to Bath and when in the town itself look for a fudge shop that makes the fudge in the window in front of you (if it's still there - it has been 23 years hehehe)
