We visited Yorkshire and York last weekend. We visited the national train museum. I was amazed by the cut open steam locomotive, I took the photo looking towards the front of the loco to the right of the photo with the fire box in the foreground to the left. The river is the Ouse and the house is Beningbrough Hall.

We went to two National trust properties this weekend. Clandon House, which was burned out in 2015, so that made the visit interesting as it’s possible to go inside of the building and see the structure. Then we visited Hatchlands Park where we had a localy walk around the grounds. On the Sunday we visited the Lavender fields.

We mostly spent a weekend at home this weekend. Saturday we went out and about, to Crowthorne for coffee and cake then to The Vyne (NT porperty) for an ice cream and a walk. Sunday Hannah picked up from plants for her pots and we found a load of snails that caused me much amusement.

We went to Lauren and James’ on Friday. We all visited Reinham Hall which is a National Trust property where they had an Easter egg hunt. That after back at theirs we saw a fox in the back garden. Saturday I fitted out the shed a little more and reinforced the area of the bench where the 7 inch vice will attach. We spent Sunday in Portsmouth, the picture is of Old Portsmouth. Today (Monday) we went and visited Windlesham Arboretum, very pretty. During the afternoon and with Hannah’s help I sorted the garage out and discovered a wasp is busy making it her home also.

We visiting two National Trust properties today, firstly Rudyard Kipling’s  house called Batemans. Having found the cafe to be closed we left after an hour or so and continued on to Bodium Castle which is close by. We also very briefly visited a reservoir called Bewl Water and then ever so briefly visited Scotney Castle on the way home.
