We decided to have a night away whilst having a tour of a bit of the country we're not that familiar with.
Early start on Friday, it was raining when we set off, and all the way around the M25, down the M4 into wales. It eased off as we passed Raglan, and by the time we reached mid Wales patches of blue had appeared.
We were aiming for Gigrin farm to see the Red Kite feeding station, and we knew that the best time to arrive was 1pm, but as we were a little early, we stopped at the (closed) visitor centre for the Elan Valley.
We made it back to Gigrin Farm in good time, and the Red Kite feeding was absolutely fabulous. We had a drive around the Elan Valley and stopped to look at some of the Dams.
Finally, we headed off to Telford to find our hotel for the night. Dinner in the bar was good.
On Saturday morning we headed to Iron Bridge, then on to Stokesay Castle. Very interesting little place and well worth a visit. We headed from there to Kenilworth, and stopped for a couple of hours at the castle.
Finally we headed home.
Oh, and did I mention that I got my new car?
