Walks and Memories.

There’s a lovely walk on Cannock Chase that stretches from the German Cemetery (with a salutary memorial and the graves of German, Commonwealth and Allied soldiers who died over here) past the Katyn Memorial Stone (commemorating the massacre of Polish intelligentsia and influential by the NKVD, a Soviet secret police organisation) in April and May 1940.  866 more words

To Fairoak Pools

Early November in Staffordshire: it’s cold but it’s sunny, and there’s little wind – Cannock Chase could be good, we can have bacon rolls* for lunch at the visitor centre… We’re ringing the changes slightly – starting from one of our usual spots, we’re taking in a detour to Fairoak Pools – they look good on the map, and we can loop around them. 132 more words

James Bay, Cannock Chase//Photo Diary

It’s been a few weeks since I went to this gig now, but I never got round to writing this post! These posts have become a kind of tradition for me, I write one for pretty much all of the gigs I go to for me to look back at in the future – and of course to share my photos with you! 27 more words
