Blunsdon, Purton and a railway
11th century Blunsdon church
Rectors of Blunsdon from 1299
Cottages in nearby Purton
Purton church, one on only 3 in the country with both a tower and a spire. The reason for this was the two sisters who were the benefactors could not agree on which to build so they built both!
The old tythe barn next to the church
Am I really in England?
Tomb of Nevil Maskel, Astronomer Royal in the 1700's of the Greenwich Observatory
The arms of George III - 1768
My trusty steed awaits!
The Swindon and Cricklade railway, privately owned and funded.
This carriage was actually the home of an elderly lady for many years!
Only the best for me!
This was the first time I'd been on a train for 30 years!
Uh oh! Time to call the AAA?
Taken from the buffet car
End of another great day.
