What Did I Find in Langport, Somerset ?

Where We Went… Langport, South Somerset. A pretty little town set on the banks of the River Parret with views out across the Somerset Levels. For a small place, Langport has a lot going on with a thriving high street and plenty to see and do locally. Very friendly local community and some unique things… Continue reading What Did I Find in Langport, Somerset ?

Peninsula Barracks, Winchester

Question: What do you do with old military barracks when they are no longer needed to house soldiers and supplies? It’s an interesting question. Moving about as an army wife and digging into the history of each place we live, I’ve come to realise that the MoD lives in an endless cycle of building military… Continue reading Peninsula Barracks, Winchester

The Victorian Cemetery, Highclere

I love a good graveyard. So stumbling upon this one rescued a walk-gone-wrong nicely. Also, as I wrote this, I discovered that July 21st marks the beginning of Church Tourism Week. So maybe it was meant to be. Anyway… The aim of the day wasn’t graveyard discovery, although I’m always up for a bit of… Continue reading The Victorian Cemetery, Highclere

Wiltshire Walk @ Black Dog Halt

Confession: I spend a lot more time scrolling Instagram than I should. It’s a time thief and viewing other peoples insta-perfect lives/homes/travels isn’t always good for the soul. Sometimes though, it throws up some inspiration that makes the scrolling worthwhile. Such was the case when I hit upon an image from someone’s walk tagged #blackdoghalt.… Continue reading Wiltshire Walk @ Black Dog Halt
