took a run over to upton on severn today folks...last time i was there was when i was 15..my friends grandad who lived there picked us up from villa street and took us over to spend the weekend there...he had a motorbike and sidecar and we travelled in the sidecar..seems only like yesterday....they had a lovely little cottage right on the banks of the river...cottage now gone due to flooding over the years but the little town has not changed much...me and my friend would walk around upton singing this song which was no 1 at the time[Little LOL]...still one of my favourites

will post a few piccies in a bit..

That's the good thing about travelling around, you get some things you never see near home.

We are very lucky with our countryside, most people don't have to travel very far to find some of it.
