    Thanks Philippa, I enjoyed this. Felt rather like I was there. The idea of the table carvings I.D. project is mind-boggling!

      If you do get the chance to go, Mimi, then definitely go as it’s a stunning place. I’m biased as I grew up near it, but I still love it even though I was there all through my childhood and youth. You might also be interested in and

    It would be nice to see Stratford where Shakespeare was born, I’ll have to try and visit there and it is understandable that the people of Stratford being proud of there history. I visited Peterborough last year and the people there were the same they are extremely proud of their Queen Katherine of Aragon
