Whisper it but I'm going on holiday tomorrow.

I know, it's so unexpected. I am taking Dad and we are off to South Lincolnshire. We've been to the place we're staying before but not for at least about 5 or 6 years I'd imagine.

The visit has been planned!! I have an agenda for each day!! It reads morning visit market then head to an historic house!! I've got 6 markets lined up for sir I think, what a good son eh!

The good thing is that with the exception of one place they will all be new to the blog. Another good thing is that a few places will be new to me.

Places I expect to get to include:
Southwell Minster
Southwell Workhouse
Doddington Hall (never been)
Newstead Abbey (never been)
Clumber Park
Grimsthorpe Castle
Belton House

There are a few churches in the area I'd like to visit, but I'm less "flitty" with Dad so if I get one addition I'll be pleased.

And never fear OC the camera will be clicking.

Vodafone say I won't 3g internet but you never know. I'll text twitter updates.

So we can expect good weather? lol
Have a great time Pete.

Oooh, you're coming to 'my turf' Clumber Park, no plans for Sherwood at the same time?? Rufford Park is also close to them and my favourite of the three, Southwell and such I know well. I go to the carol service every year at Southwell Minster and my brother was married and their son christened there :)

Lovely place!

(they are in Nottinghamshire though)
