On the A2070 between Brenzett and Hamstreet in Kent an American flag can be seen close to the road. I hadn’t noticed it until someone mentioned it to me. It’s easy to miss, being as it’s a fast road and the flag pole is concealed between trees. But it is there. The flag flies over a […]

Windsor Castle

Over the centuries various kings have improved and extended the fortifications making it the impressive building it is today. What struck me as I walked through was how clean the exterior looked.

August 18, 2014
