We had a wonderful weekend at Calf Heath, socialising with Helen and Andy, going to the Historic Narrowboat Club's auction of memorabilia and assorted items (Andy was very happy to come away with the two lots he'd been wanting), and watching the Six Nations Rugby final at a delightful pub called The Woolpack in Weston. … Continue reading Kinver Rock Houses – seeing inside at last!
