Thanks again everyone. Due to the possibility of rain most of the day I changed plans and went on the Severn Valley Railway and had a great time. Bridgnorth station is only about 8 miles from here but I hadn't travelled on this line for about 15 years. Photos to follow later this week when I sort them out.http://www.svr.co.uk/
ironically it didn't rain after all but was overcast all day so the garden photo plans I had probably wouldn't have worked out anyway.
