Re: Short Spring UK visit

I think the Coventry Tourist Board should sign you up Henry, overall you've provided a lovely view of Coventry. No doubt a proud visit for you and your wife and my congratulations to your Son on his graduation.

Modern houses built in the tudor style are nice but what I don't understand are those like the Golden Cross Inn and those around Stratford upon avon





The walls and upper story are not even straight

Re: Short Spring UK visit

As someone who grew up not far from Coventry I must admit I have never seen it looking this good. Great stuff Henry, I might even have to go back and have another look! It's a shame the post war rebuild of the city was so unsympathetic to its history.

Re: Short Spring UK visit

The town houses don't do much for me & I don't see why they deserve the dot, but most of the other shots are really impressive & make me think being sent to Coventry may not be such a bad thing
It's not a part of the country I know, but I'll now consider it for a detour from the M6.
