    Have been eyeing up this place for ages and ages and have lost count of the number of reccies we have done!

    Decided to get sarnies and other tasty items packed and set alarm clock for a frighteningly early time, before setting off up the A1 to St Mary's.

    Strange thing mornings at this time of year. One minute its still more or less dark, and the next minute its bloody bright sunlight and a wish that hadnt stayed in bed for that extra 15 minutes!

    One fall from a great height and a twisted ankle later and we were in! Ankle knacking but not to be put off we plodded on (or rather he hobbled and she chuckled - lets be honest it was funny!)

    I HAVE TRIED TO LABEL THE PHOTIES AS ACCURATELY AS I COULD.

    STARTED SHOOTING STRAIGHT AWAY.......FOLLOWING THE SIGNS AND USING OUR ZOOMED IN LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS GOOGLE EARTH MAP FOR REFERENCE.......
