Ross on Wye

A friend heard we were going to Ross on Wye for the weekend and said that they had heard it was on a river!  But which one…

(That’ll be the River Wye then).

Anyway, these are pictures of literally the best 700 year old barn we saw.

We also walked around the countryside and went to a castle, which was all very nice and nearly Welsh, just like the local accents.  We accidentally drove into Wales on the way home – we’d have loved to stay, but we were driving in precisely the wrong direction, which on an island you can only do for so long before you fall into the sea.
