We used to come down here quite a lot as kids so it’s a bit of a trip down memory lane. I was driving out of Gloucester and saw a sign for Prinknash Abbey which has stunning views back over Gloucester itself (which my photo doesn’t really do justice). I don’t think I have ever been into Gloucester either (although no doubt I have when younger, I just don’t remember). Anyway the cathedral is excellent as is the city cenre and the docks area.

Cheltenham I definitely have been to numerous times but I nipped in for some lunch, still making the most of the good weather, there was no way I could hope to be eating outside in mid September worried more about sunburn that rain. Let’s just hope that the forecasters continue to get it wrong. With one exception – we need rain over the Oval for the next three days please.
