A Trip to East Lancashire

First I bought a few flowers for my maternal grandparents grave.
My Daughter and granddaughter on the Roman Bridge, Swanside, Downham, Lancashire. A local beauty spot where we had many picnics as a child.
The very large table at Stonyhurst College where Oliver Cromwell supposedly slept in all his armour at the time of the Dissolution of the Monasteries.
This was Arthur Conan Doyles Desk (author of Sherlock Holmes) at Stonyhurst College. Can you see where he carved A Doyle. He was very friendly with a boy named Watson but not with another boy called Moriarty.
Close up of A. Doyle
Ruins at Whalley Abbey destroyed during the Dissolution of the Monasteries.
