A Day Out with Elspeth In Southwell (and Newark again)

I’m doing the cathedrals of England, and I’m nearly done. The big ones, that is. I’m less bothered by parish church cathedrals, and even less so by most of the catholic ones. It’s not the title, it’s the church itself; so I’m more keen to...

A Day out with Elspeth in The Real Mary King’s Close

A Day Out With Elspeth in Southwold and Walberswick

Before I introduce you to these Suffolk seaside places, I would like to speak of the kindness I found in nearby Halesworth. Not only the friendliness at the event I attended, but when something went wrong, and from strangers in the street.   Sou...

A Day Out With Elspeth at Sutton Hoo

    or A Hoo Ha or Horton hears a Hoo or Dr/Sutton Who-oo, the Tardis. Does anyone remember that song?   I refer of course to the humps across the river Deben from Woodbridge in Suffolk that you have to go 4 miles round to get to and p...

Elspeth’s Naughty Guide to Durham

I could hardly call this a day out, since it’ll be a rant, you’re warned. But don’t let that put you off. This is a rant of righteous wrath and there’ll be amusing information along the way. “Grey towers of Durham How I love thy mixed and...

A Day Out with Elspeth in Chichester

For 20 years, I’ve been visiting the cathedral cities of England. I’m nearly done; so I savour each new city, knowing the pleasure of first arrival, first sighting,  first walking up to the church – how will it appear? is not to be...

A Day Out With Elspeth in Canterbury

I’m not one to often speak of road numbers – I’m very conscious of Bill Bryson’s observation about that as a British past time – but my thoughts of Canterbury begin at the A2, the London to Dover road. You have the same view from the Eurost...
