Wellington,Usk,LLangollen and Southport

We have left Penzance and heading for my home town Blackpool with stops at Wellington,Lllangollen (Wales) and Southport Wellington is a small country town standing between the River Tone and the beautiful Blackdown Hills.Wellington Monument, built in honour of the Duke of Wellington, is a major landmark in the area and visible from many parts of the town.We sat next to people in the restaurant who are also living in Queensland.Usk in South Wales It is located on the River Usk, which is spanned by an arched stone bridge at the western entrance to the town. A castle above the town overlooks the ancient crossing point. It developed as a small market town was a lovely little town and the old Cross Keys pub where we stayed served lovely meals in a mediaeval room.This time we met people from my old area in Western Australia,this world is getting smaller.Annie cant believe how narrow the streets are !! Next stop was Llangollen and the beautiful scenery that is breath taking The bridge at Llangollen was built in about 1345 by John Trevor, of nearby Trevor Hall, who later became Bishop of St Asaph. It was extended to cross the railway when this was built in the 1860s and was widened in the early 1960s. The upstream side has new masonry which blends in with the older structure.There has been SO much to see and I could spend lots of time travelling to Blackpool and blogging is becoming very time consuming.England begin their European Cup adventures soon and I will be inducting Annie into how to become a football fanatic !!
