A Couple of Days Away

We had a couple of days away in Cambridgeshire visiting Belton House a National Trust property and paying a visit to the Nene Valley Heritage Railway for their Autumn Steam Gala. Unfortunately the weather didn't play ball. We travelled down the A1 on Friday morning through rain but luckily for us the afternoon cleared up and we even managed a little sunshine for a couple of hours in the afternoon as we wandered around the parkland  and gardens at Belton House before the rain returned again in the evening.
It was a damp cool start to Saturday morning as we arrived at Wansford station on the Nene Valley Railway. The forecast was for the weather to improve gradually through the day.
At least the rain held off and as forecast it did improve in the afternoon with the sun just managing a very brief appearance.
We missed the heavy rain forecast for Sunday but it was a cloudy and blustery day not very pleasant at all. The forecast for the next few days suggests daytime temperatures just making it into the low teens. It’s supposed to be autumn not winter but the weather doesn't seem to know that!


  1. At least you managed to miss the rain while you were out and about. Glad you had a good weekend.

  2. Some great photos and very different from each other; my favourite being the last one. Looks a good visit.
