This was a rather eventful day. The tiny village of Wookey Hole is famous for the Caves.

And so on day 8 I took Aaron to see Bletchley Park, and had to explain to him the significance of the place.

The Mansion where the Code Breakers worked.
Bletchley Park

Actually, this is where the head of the section and his staff worked. The real code breakers worked out of little pre-fab huts on the grounds.

Still at Duxford, more planes, some tanks, and other things.
Even more planes. )

After Hatfield House, we headed to Beaconsfield to wander around Bekonscot Model Village - the first model village ever built.

This village was featured on Midsomer Murders, where the victim was left surrounded by the little towns people.

Tiny houses, or giant people. )

Hatfield House does not permit photos inside, which sucked. It was very nice and had some impressive paintings. The original house was an Elizabethan palace, most of which was demolished to build the current house. Some of the Old Palace still exists.

I've been told the gardens are impressive as well, but that was an extra cost.
A few photos. )

After not visiting the Queen in Sandringham, we headed to Blickling Hall.

Unusally for a manor, you are allowed to take photos inside.
Lots of photos, of course )

From Castle Rising it is a short run to Sandringham where the Queen lives. She wasn't in that day, so they let us peasants in. No photos inside, though.

More photos of a large house, some gardens, and a few old cars. )

And so Aaron & I headed off to Norfolk to visit a castle at Castle Rising - Castle Rising Castle - and a few other places.

The castle looks like this from the air

After Ely, we drove to Framlingham Castle which looks like this from the air (Googlemaps image). The castle was built some time in the 12th century (records are a bit vague) and upgraded many times over the years.

And now a heap of photos I took.
Lots of photos, part 1 )

Forgot to post these photos of owls at the Shuttleworth Raptor Centre

OWLS! and a falcon )

We got up really early, had a long breakfast, then Aaron & I headed for Ely Cathedral.

Lots and lots of photos. )
