I've had a very busy few days, which is the reason for the lack of posts, but now am back. During a long weekend I was based in Greenwich - and did a lot of research into Westminster and other history. The picture above was taken from a boat on the Thames - I took a 'mini-cruise' to widen my knowledge of England's most important river. The fruits of that will be appearing over the next few days.
I've also resurrected a local blog - http://westofwatlingstreet.wordpress.com/. It's aimed at Milton Keynes residents living, believe it or not, west of Watling Street - the Roman Road which runs through Milton Keynes (on its way from the channel ports of Dover and Richborough to Wroxeter and Chester). Of course it's not exclusive - if you'd like to follow events; issues and most of all - history - in England's New City - then please do take a look and subscribe.
