Milton Keynes and Anglesey Abbey - March 2010
For a number of years we have visited former University friends of Anne's Sheila and Pete Taylor in Milton Keynes for a weekend and have also been joined by Chris and Andy Bull who now live in Wales. The following is a short travelogue of our 2010 visit.

Friday 12th March
Set off for Milton Keynes at 3.45 p.m and the journey took two and a half hours as there was plenty of traffic around including an accident near Bedford. Had an evening meal and a good chat before going to bed
Saturday 13th March
We travelled late morning to a village on the Grand Union Canal, about a 20 minute drive from Milton Keynes into Northamptonshire. A very pleasant village and we had a walk along the towpath and through the woods and then visited the canal museum where we found some plates from Great Yarmouth and mentions of the Knottingley Canal - so connections for both of us. Had a drink in a local pub and then returned to Milton Keynes.
Sunday 14th March
Sunday morning service at Simpson Church and then a visit to Anglesey Abbey on the way home. No hold ups our way but traffic very heavy in the other direction. We were offered a lift on a little buggy from the car park to the house (perhaps they thought we looked a bit old or frail or perhaps the driver was just bored and needed somebody to chat to). Had a look round the house and a walk in the gardens and met Liz and Gordon Edwards who live in the next road to us.
