A moving experience as I imagined the sheer joy of the British folk 70 years ago of the end of WW2 and then their pain in remembering the loved ones who never returned.
Opposite the Pepperpot was the Tudor House museum full of historical artifacts but not just of the Tudor period. For the grand sum of £2 PP (Concessionary) well worth a visit.
|Fancy having to keep that lot clean!|
|Anyone fancy making these?|
There was loads of places to explore and a very enjoyable afternoon doing it. The flood defences were present but not at all intrusive. I mean it's no wonder the folk of Upton need these gates judging by the height of the floods in 2007.
|Watch out all you scolding women. It's the dirty pool for you!|

Didnt get out bug hunting after all. Weather was dry but to windy for me to take a decent photo with the macro lens. I did get one bug which convienantly landed on the outside of the window. Take a close look at one of it's legs. Just by it is the tiniest mite. I couldnt see it with the naked eye and was very surprised at what I saw. The way this bug is looking at it it may have become lunch!
|This flying bug was about 1/4" long (6mm)|
|And feeding the chicks insects, this Starlings nest is in the eaves of the museum.|
