Kenilworth Castle, a prominent feature of my daily walks.
Welcome to anyone who may have wandered over here from the discussion of the Mill Towns Trail on Locally Grown (thanks to Griff for the link). I hope you'll explore this blog, which is a fairly complete record of the Hardy family's year in England. Some highlights include trips to the Peak District and to Salzburg, Austria (October); a Jane Austen tour to Chawton, Winchester and Bath (January); and trips to Lincoln and North Yorkshire (April). You'll also find posts about long walks in the English countryside, books I've read this year, Shakespeare plays in Stratford-on-Avon, and local Warwickshire attractions—including our local castle (pictured above). Still to come are posts about our upcoming week in the Lake District (end of May), where we hope to venture out on one of the classic English walks—along Striding Edge to the summit of Helvellyn. Finally, there are links at left to blogs and music by other members of the family. Stay tuned to Clara's blog for posts about her current solo trip to Athens, Greece.
