Anniversary break


This week was our silver wedding anniversary so we had a break to mark the occasion. Our anniversary was on the 18th so we went away of Saturday the 15th and came back yesterday. We have had very busy and really enjoyable week. We stayed in three different places, two nights in each, we didn't have any fancy hotels, just Travelodge which is good enough its only a place to sleep and shower.

The first stop was Newcastle under Lyme.

Day One.

We visited the potteries museum and art gallery.






Followed by Brampton Museum and art gallery and park.






Then to finish off  Westport Lake Wildlife trust.




Day Two.

We visited the Spode museum, we had a demonstration on how the transfers are applied, it was very interesting.



We then visited the Middleport Pottery, no photos here we didn't stay long as it wasn't that good.

Then we finished off at the World of Wedgewood, which was absolutely brilliant, so many beautiful things to see.




Day Three.

Off to the Lake District.

We just relaxed and took in the scenery.



Windermere
Hawkshead

Coniston




Day Four.

Which was the day of our anniversary.

We wandered around Kendal for a while before spending most of the day at Sizergh Castle and Gardens. Which was really lovely. 

It is home to the Strickland family who have lived there for more than 750 years, it is set in large beautiful landscaped gardens, and it was extended in tudor times.







The final two days were spent in Blackpool.




Madame Tussauds .



A trip up the tower...


I wasn't feeling brave enough to stand on the glass and look down

Afternoon tea in the ballroom, a real treat and a wonderful experience......







So as you can see we had a fantastic break.

Love you John thankyou for the last 25 years. xx
