Review of 2017 : July

July was a month of travelling to new places and revisiting my very earliest haunts (not that i remembered them). It started with a trip up to Merseyside and tracking down the first house i lived in when i was a toddler. There was also a return to the Stratford Canal.

Mid month i headed to Berkhamstead to visit the castle, and also to walk the canal there. In doing so i also visited Milton Keynes for the first time in years. I explored around Birmingham's railways including visiting Marston Green station, the first time i've been to the station in the place i was born (though to be honest i work a mile away these days so its not exactly a lost world).

Finally at the end of the month a visit to Cheltenham and Gloucester and especially Gloucester Docks. I shall be exploring more of the South West in 2017. Song of the month was "precision" by The New Division.
