Tesco to Westgate Street bus stops as college was emptying out.Smudge29/03/2019
Journey home - stopped at Tesco where we left car, then up and over summit to look round the small town with its striking conical hill and motte and bailey castle.( about p18) Returned same way, but took shelter in bandstand on summit for 10 mins during heavy rain - along with 2 friendly dog walkers. We spent the time having fun throwing a ball out into the rain for an untiring collie dog to chase.Chris Pearson29/08/2018
