Get away – is Carmarthenshire really the new Cotswolds for perfect short breaks?

By the time of this view, the vehicle had been relegated to training duties. The view is of particular interest in that both fleet names appear, in Tilling style, on the side. A typical NBC waste of money. Everyone I knew always said they were travelling on “the Wilts”. Goodness knows what this is supposed to mean. It sounds like they were an afterthought! Whatever is wrong with good old-fashioned no-nonsense titles, that did what it said on the tin? Living in Ottershaw, I am often in and around Chobham but have not seen them in service there yet. Working regularly around Croydon, I have seen quite a lot of them — and in the intervening territory.

The Priory has been in the Chaworth-Musters family since , but most of the daffodils were planted in the s. Since then, many of their names had been lost, so the Priory asked three experts — including our friend Ron Scamp — to help identify them. We offer eight of them:

What — No Todmorden? How could this possibly be? It has just left its dismal terminus in Cheetham Street — behind the Hope Chapel in the background — where it will have connected with the inbound Halifax J. This one passed to the Calderdale J. They withdrew it in and sold it to Bickers of Coddenham — acting as dealers — from whom it passed to the Stella Artois brewery in Belgium who I trust paid a Reassuringly Expensive price for it. Similar bus no.

Wanborough, The Manor and The Great Barn In the Cistercian monks from Waverley Abbey near Farnham built a great barn in which to store the annual harvest of arable crops and sheep fleeces from Wanborough manor which the order controlled. The Cistercian system of recruiting lay brothers, who were men lacking the education to become fully fledged monks but who wanted the discipline of religious life, enabled large farming operations to be run efficiently and dependably for the order under the supervision of a bailiff.

The Abbey secured the right to hold an annual fair at Wanborough for three days from August 23rd and also provided for a piepowder court 1 to settle trading and other offences. The Great Barn was constructed from huge oak timbers, much of which is still in place today. The original external covering was made of vertical boarding although today this has been replaced with weatherboarding.

The building has been extended in more recent times with work undertaken in and the early 19th century. Alongside the barn is a granary which was built at the end of the 18th century, although its original position was in the front of the manor house. The granary has been converted to provide toilet and kitchen facilities to the barn which can be hired for special functions.

Now in the care of Guildford Borough Council the barn is opened to the public periodically throughout the summer with open days coordinated by the Puttenham and Wanborough History Society. Access details are available from Guildford Museum The Domesday Book of recorded two manors and a church existed in Weneberge sic before the Norman Conquest of at which time it was owned by Sweign and Leofwin, probably brothers to King Harold.

The Domesday valuation, with the manor then held by Goisfrid de Mandville, provided for assets of three hides 2 , a church, nine ploughs 3 , with six acres of meadow and woodland valued at 30 hogs 4. A plaque has been erected commemorating the Domesday listing in the churchyard.

The meal was followed by a very entertaining and informative slide show given by Mike Jackson entitled “My Voyages on Bulk Carriers”. This covered Mike’s voyages on several bulk carriers during the s and s. Some wonderful slides of many ships long departed from today’s shipping scene were shown. Many members stayed in the hotel on Saturday night and partook in a organised visit to Dover Coastguard Station on Sunday morning.

After breakfast a convoy of 21 members plus 2 local guests of the organiser made the short journey to the Maritime and Coastguard Agency building at Langdon Battery on the cliffs at Dover. We even received a surprise close by fly-past by one of the search and rescue planes ‘Echo November’.

His first mission was to clear the seas of French naval forces between England to the northern coast of Spain to allow for the landing of supporting troops near the French border at Fuenterrabia. The fleet consisted of 18 ships, among them the large ships the Regent and the Peter Pomegranate, carrying over 5, men. Howard’s expedition led to the capture of twelve Breton ships and a four-day raiding tour of Brittany where English forces successfully fought against local forces and burned numerous settlements.

In August the fleet sailed for Brest where it encountered a joint, but ill-coordinated, French-Breton fleet at the battle of St. The English with one of the great ships in the lead according to Marsden the Mary Rose battered the French ships with heavy gunfire and forced them to retreat.

Before seeing action, she took part in a race against other ships where she was deemed to be one of the most nimble and the fastest of the great ships in the fleet see details under ” Sails and rigging “.

On 11 April, Howard’s force arrived off Brest only to see a small enemy force join with the larger force in the safety of Brest harbour and its fortifications. Howard landed forces near Brest, but made no headway against the town and was by now getting low on supplies.

Norfolk, Virginia

Share this article Share When Mary passed away at 99 over Christmas, we had, I thought, exchanged almost every intimacy and secret. We were very close. No child ever thinks of their father or mother as having once been a carefree young person.

Colonial years[ edit ] In the Governor of the Virginia Colony , Sir George Yeardley , incorporated four jurisdictions, termed citties, for the developed portion of the colony. These formed the basis for colonial representative government in the newly minted House of Burgesses. What would become Norfolk was put under the Elizabeth Cittie incorporation. In King Charles I reorganized the colony into a system of shires. After persuading people to settle in the colony, Adam Thoroughgood who had immigrated to Virginia in from King’s Lynn , Norfolk , England was granted a large land holding, through the head rights system, along the Lynnhaven River in When the South Hampton Roads portion of the shire was separated, Thoroughgood suggested the name of his birthplace for the newly formed New Norfolk County.

One year later, it was divided into two counties, Upper Norfolk and Lower Norfolk the latter now incorporated into the City of Norfolk , chiefly on Thoroughgood’s recommendation. Norfolk was incorporated in

Over the last decade Carmarthenshire has brushed up on its tourism offering to compete with hot spots like the Cotswolds. And that work has paid off. Doesn’t The Corran in Laugharne look cosy? For a start, the transport links into Carmarthenshire are fantastic.

It is 30 May and there is a running day to mark the official but not actual closure of Portswood Depot. Perhaps Southampton valued standardisation more than up to the minute styling as these were the last of a very large batch of early post-war Guys. Perhaps Nigel Frampton can advise! I have a strong suspicion that the presence of a local coach proprietor on the Committee had more than some influence there!

What about a declaration of conflicting interests? I think you might agree that neither the PD2 or PD2A could be described as pretty, particularly in the “red look” livery. Great for me as provincial my favourite operator had many of this type. A proper bus, brilliant. It was a rigmarole for bus enthusiasts to get one of their buses for private hire outside the Portmsouth area, little more the Portsea Island, plus Leigh Park, a Portsmouth Council housing estate, where dispensation had been given after it was built.

Classic Super Bikes Fleet, Hampshire. Restored and rebuilt by an experienced marque specialist in Sweden and still requiring some running in, it’s excellent in all regards except for the left silencer which has been damaged by a battery acid leak. Still awaiting workshop appraisal here, after which a video will be added, but we are reliably assured it runs faultlessly and the restoration work looks to be of a high standard.

It was used as a school bus in Lyme Regis all its working life as far as I know. It came off the road in tax disc still in the window when my father bought it.

In my father made up a galvanised roof to go over the bus, removed all the seats – bar the drivers seat and the front passenger seat – and built shelves all down through it. From then until now it has been used as a store. So the question is, what is the body make?

The vehicle history AHU started life as private hire coach fleet number J and apart from a fleet number change in to remained unchanged until the Second World War. In July its seating was rearranged to seat 34 while it was used as a bus, and between May and September it ran with a gas producer trailer. After the war a Gardner 5LW diesel engine was fitted replacing the original Bristol 6-cylinder petrol engine and was renumbered at the same time. The new body seated 35, and the bus re-entered service in June In it was used during the construction of Bristol bus station for carrying large signs with the centre of the roof and rear of the body removed.

Determined to see off this challenge to the supremacy of the Royal Navy the then First Lord of the Admiralty, Sir John Somerset Pakington, determined to build a ship so superior in terms of quality, speed, size, armament and armour that it would be inconceivable to France that she could take Britain on in a sea battle.

When commissioned by Captain the Hon. The ship underwent minor modifications after a sea trial. In June , she started active service in the Channel Squadron, patrolling coastal waters and sailing to Lisbon and Gibraltar. Having introduced a revolution in naval architecture, by Warrior was superseded by faster designs, with bigger guns and thicker armour. By she was no longer regarded as the crack ship she had once been, and her roles were downgraded to Coastguard and reserve services.

In May of her fore and main masts were found to be rotten, and not considered worth the cost of repair, Warrior was placed in the reserve, eventually converted to a floating school for the Navy and re-named Vernon III in Put up for sale as scrap in , no buyer could be found, and so, in March she left Portsmouth to be taken to Pembroke Dock and converted into a floating oil pontoon, re-named again as Oil Fuel Hulk C By , she was the only surviving example of the ‘Black Battlefleet’ – the 45 iron hulls built for the Royal Navy between and
