Aug 7, 2015 - Romsey

Friday August 7 After having breakfast again with Pat and Richard, we started our drive to Romsey in the South of England. The distance for trip would be over 200 miles, but with most of the time spent driving on motorways, it did not take much longer than 4 fours. We arrived in Romsey in plenty of time to visit Broadlands, the home of the late Viscount Mountbatten. We had been past this estate many times over the years, but the property was being renovated and not open to the public. We spent an hour or so on a guided tour of the house,...

Apr 18, 2014 - Romsey, England

Friday April 18 We awoke early this morning, showered and packed, ready to leave after breakfast. Gary and Richard washed the car while Pat made a hot breakfast of bacon, sausage and scrambled eggs.

In the 1930s Maud and Gilbert Russell made Mottisfont the centre of a fashionable artistic and political circle inviting many famous artists and politicians to stay. As well as the house the gardens were...

Sep 12, 2012 - Making our way to Romsey

Wednesday September 12 After picking up sandwiches for lunch, we headed a little further down the coast to the village of Bosham where we sat on a bench at Quay Meadow (National Trust property) overlooking the Bay and ate our lunch in the sunshine. The village is a very popular spot as evidenced by the tour buses in the car park. It is a very pretty spot and sports a very interesting library! A red telephone kiosk has been converted inside into a series of shelves that were crammed with books; free to folks in the community; read them and...
