Road trips and adventures #6 – history and beauty, all in one!

Posted on September 30, 2019 by Sioux under General

We took to the road again after lunch, and stopped in Exeter to visit the cathedral. Walking from where we had parked our car, we passed by, but never went in to The Sacred Heart Church, a Roman Catholic Parish church in Exeter, built in 1883. The site of the church was previously the Bear Tavern, which was also […]

We had seen a directional board for the Yeovilton Fleet Air Arm Museum, and with both of us having a keen interest in anything that flies, we decided it would be the perfect place for our first stop off en-route to Torquay.

After a long but relaxing drive from Salisbury, via a few stop offs, we got to our accommodation in Glastonbury. A small flatlet off the main house, we had complete privacy and a fabulous view over the garden.   We were here for a couple days, and I would see in my 60th year, breathing […]
