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

A Day Out With Elspeth in Tewkesbury

A Day Out With Elspeth in Stamford

The Easterner’s Cotswold fix I think this was my first stone town – that of warm, golden beige, unmarred by the grey of age or industry, and I was enchanted; I still am. I like that even the modern housing enclave by the station is made...

A day out with Elspeth in Woodbridge

This is a lovely little East Anglian town but not as lovely as its regular feature in regional magazines wants me to believe. Woodbridge is an example of what this part of England does best: that slow, untouched feel, in the nicest way. The low rise...
