We toured Nottingham today. Still no sign of Robin Hood but travelled down Maid Marion Way so felt there was some history here. We wandered around the city centre but found little to get excited about. We found a bronze statue of Brian Clough (football fans will know his link to Nottingham Forrest) and was surprised to see he had sneakers on (bronze ones at that!)image

We had a good morning in Nottingham having a good look around. Not all of intentional as the GPS app on our phone was not all helpful or reliable. After a few "moments", including the sacking and subsequent reinstatement of the Navigator, we purchased a 'real GPS' and it's been plain sailing ever since. A favourite moment was calling in to the Trent Bridge Cricket Ground. A game was scheduled that afternoon but we were too early. The gentleman in the cricket shop was great. He responded to my requests, shut up his shop, and took us on a short tour of the ground. Brilliant!

We travelled to Stourport-on-Severn later in the afternoon and had a great evening with Charlie Skevington's cousin, Karen & Mark. They were superb hosts, wined & dined us till we were past help, and took us to their canal boat where we spent a nautical night rocked to sleep by the canal harbour
