A trip to Stratford

To have a break from all the railway stuff just for a moment... i went to Stratford-upon-Avon yesterday. Of course the town is very familiar to me, my dissertation of my History Masters was on the economic effects of the horse drawn tramway on the town - at one stage i was going to Stratford nearly every week to go to the archives.

I don't go very often now, maybe once or twice a year. Yesterday i was taking a family friend from overseas on their first trip to the town, it was nice to do a bit of "touristy" stuff for once especially at the church of the Holy Trinity where Shakespeare is buried.
