Inside Tewkesbury Abbey

When we head south to Cornwall we often stop at the Tewkesbury Caravan Club site.  It’s just a few minutes off the motorway and there’s enough to see and do in the town. We always include a visit the historic Tewkesbury Abbey. 

The Abbey played a key role in the War of the Roses. Following a battle in the town the defeated Lancastrian soldiers took refuge in the Abbey but when the York army came calling they were handed over to be hanged on the town’s main street.

Here are a few photographs from our last visit to the Abbey.

In Pictures: Cornwall Beaches

I’ve not posted anything on the blog for a while but thought it was about time to add something new, so here is a quick post with a few photos from a recent visit to Cornwall.

The beaches are beautiful. Some have a rugged beauty, some have gorgeous sand and gentle lapping waves and others are great spots for capturing a sunset. Here’s a selection of pics from Newquay, St Ives and Godrevy.
