a lovely experience and the route we took was very picturesque.
Leaving the Yew Tree, we took the Abergavenny Road until
we reached Wormelow, then turned towards Much Dewchurch.
After driving across the Tram Inn crossing we headed for
Hereford, passing the Three Counties Hotel, turning right
into Walnut Tree Avenue towards Holme Lacy. Driving through
the lovely village we then passed through Fownhope and How
Caple, then Upton Bishop and Bromsash, turning off near
Weston-under-Penyard. Then it was a straight drive up to

I look forward to seeing you all again soon..
