A Journey Through England

the river tyne
We set off for Oxford on Tuesday morning and the weather was glorious. We needed a tyre change so we stopped in our local market town of Bellingham and dropped the car off at our local garage. A walk around the corner and there sits a bench overlooking the river for you to sit and rest. How's this for a waiting room?
cuddy's well bellingham
Cuddy's Well sits opposite the garage, the locals call it The Concrete Dustbin but I think it's charming. The steps lead up to the Church.
row of cottages bellingham
On the other side of the road a charming row of cottages in a little private lane.
melmerby bakery
A stop for coffee and cake on our way West at The Melmerby Bakery taken in the garden with views to die for.
the edge of the lake district
Passing the edge of the Lake District. I love these hills that look as though someone has punched them.
I have just got back so will be posting more tomorrow. Time for tea methinks.
