Summer Camp Day 12


We have had a wonderful day on the Severn Valley Railway today.

Travelling along the line from Bridgnorth to Kidderminster with a little stop at Highley to visit the engine shed/museum, we have had a glorious day on a steam train. I love the whole thing about travelling by steam – the sounds, the smells, the movement, the whole romanticism of it all and today didn’t disappoint.

After some lunch in Kidderminster we visited the museum on the station and had a ride on a miniature railway. Twas rather fun!!

We had a walk in the town of Bridgnorth when we got back and had a swift pull back up the gorge on the cable ride. Short but incredibly steep!!

We have dodged the weather all day again but it’s only to be expected of England in the summer haha! We were rewarded with glorious evening sunshine though, as you can see here in the photo of the River Severn in the town centre.

All in all it has been a lovely day but the question still remains: why is there no “E” in Bridgnorth? And if there is a BridgNORTH is there a BridgSOUTH?

That’s two questions, but you know me, you always get more than you bargained for!

A trip to the safari park it’s on the cards tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing the elephants 🙂

    Hi Pam, great that you had another marvellous day again. It’s Thursday morning here in Australia. We’ve watching life the wonderful opening ceremonies from London. The sun is up, that means we could open doors and windows to let lovely fresh air in. Now I have to get ready to work on some more preparations for our big trip which starts at the end of next week! I hope that you can at least watch some of the highlights of the opening ceremonies. There’s some beautiful singing in it too. And a lot of the presentations are very moving. Love, Uta.

    you are having such a lovely time on your holiday and everyone looks so happy. I can remember as a child standing on the railway bridge when a train was coming ..watching as the smoke and steam enveloped you and then racing across to the other side of the road to see the engine as it came out…such lovely memories of steam trains.
    Carry on Camping!
