M25? :-)


Interests would be great nature, grand architecture or maybe some
old
town.

Avebury, Windsor, London

Oxford, Bicester, Aylesbury maybe?

Imperial War Museum in Duxford.



Bourton-on-the-Water, the two Slaughters, Blenheim Palace

and a million other places, almost anywhere except Pernis :-)

We are agreed on Pernis. :-)

I think of you every time we pass Pernis on the way to catch the ferry

Didn't think I was that memorable :-)


It takes my mind off the stink

Glad to be of service.

AFAIR Pernis was a potential disaster site in a recent report.

Wouldn't surprise me.
Already in 1952 (before we left to go live in Australia) there were times
when soot rained from the sky, to say nothing of the fumes billowing from
the smoke stacks and the ground pollution under the refineries and
petrochemical factories seeping towards the inhabited areas over the past 80
odd years.
Pretty frightening really.

I'll second someone else's suggestion to visit Bath. It has nice
Geogian architecture, and a pretty cathedral. The Roman baths can be
toured.

Winding your way through the Cotswolds visiting tiny villages would
also be very picturesque.

Close to the airport is St. Alban's, with an interesting cathedral,
Roman ruins, and the museum has some great mosaics salvaged.

Don't stop until you get there. Why? Well, your major issue is

going to
be getting round London. Sunday it might be but the traffic can

be a real
problem.


The M25 part of the trip took 41 minutes.

Are Bath or Wells too far off the way ?


I had originally planned to visit Bath for an evening during my stay,
but there wasn't time. So Bath was the Sunday visit after first
making a trek to Vale Street in Bristol.

And how steep was it, in degrees, in percentage points, or your
other chosen unit? grin
