The last afternoon of our friend Jason’s visit saw us pop over to Toby Carvery to stuff our faces and a drive up to Greenham & Crookham Common to apparently creep ourselves out in the middle of the day. Here are some photos I took, the first couple make me feel like Newbury’s Toby Carvery is a bit weird and the rest kind of remind me of a horror film.
Greenham & Crookham Common is a little creepy regardless of how much of a wasteland it was on Sunday. Jason found information about secret nuclear testing and Newbury apparently having a higher percentage of leukaemia than the rest of Berkshire, not sure about the truth in that but still a bit weird. The bunkers and lack of flowers and sun did make for refreshing perspective on things but it was nice to get some fresh air in my lungs.
That little taste of spring that we had yesterday has me so excited, I can’t wait to stop wearing scarves and coats, coming home and warming up with hot chocolate is nice but give me an ice cold lemonade any day. I want some sun on my skin.
