The English trip continues.  Currently I am in London, about to head out and do a spot of touristic cruising.  Before I came back down to the capital, I spent a couple of days in Southwell, Nottinghamshire.  We were blessed with a couple of glorious days and it was great to get around and see the beautiful English countryside and the River Trent.

Southwell is known for it’s minster, a beautiful building that is over 900 years old.  I didn’t get any photos of it this time around, however I’ll be sure to get some in just over a week.

Although I didn’t get any pictures of Southwell’s most famous landmark, I did take some of the surrounding area and countryside.  I was particularly intrigued by an awesome overgrown lane way close to where we were staying.

  1. How was the real ale, bitter or not-lager? Did you ditch the lovely car for two wheels to do the lanes? R

    • Both? And no, that car dominates the country lanes. Top down, beautiful sunny October whether, gorgeous times over here!
