Review of 2022 : January

The year 2022 then, when the disruption caused by Covid faded away but new darker clouds were on the horizon. However, this review will focus on what i did and where i went in 2022 not international politics! To see the review for 2021 click here, earlier years can be seen in the tag cloud below.

The year's travels began with a local trip to south-west Birmingham including Kings Norton. The first trip out of the city was to Newark Castle including the river Trent. Tewkesbury and Ashchurch was next.

I haven't been to Wales much over the last few years apart from Cardiff. This changed in 2022 with a number of visits, starting with Newtown. The final trip in a busy start to the year was to Bulwell.

A great start to the year then. Much more was to come. Song of the month was "dark rider" by Nina.

I had a bus adventure out to Dudley yesterday. I haven't been to the Black Country town for quite some time, probably since i was a child! I visited the ruins of the Priory, unfortunately there didn't seem to be any decent views of the castle from outside (without paying anyway!) You can see my photos here.

Church update : St Mary, Atherstone

Atherstone was revisited this Summer, the previous visit having been in the Winter. A few brighter photographs of St Mary's church with it's interesting octagonal tower were gained.
