Yesterday, the weather was not great (rain, wind... did not feel like summer at all!), so myself and the boy went down to an old childhood haunt: Chelmsford Museum. I have not been there for years and 3 years ago, they added a new section to the museum. Did not take many pictures as you're not supposed to haha.

Berkhamsted Castle

Back in May, we travelled to Hertfordshire to visit Berkhamsted's Norman motte-and-bailey castle.

So was Berkhamsted castle thrown up before or after the men surrendered? Well, before it was held by Robert of Mortain (William's younger half-brother), Domesday Book reveals that the town was held by Ea…

My second gig this year, still can't believe it!



The View were awesome!<3 nbsp="" p="">
Earlier on in the day, we attended the British Library's Russian Revolution exhibition - Click, and it was brilliant, very detailed. And you don't even have to be a History Undergraduate like me to take it in/enjoy it :) Beginning with the peasant emancipation and ending with Lenin's death, it's a modern Historian's dream!

We were also very lucky with the weather!



My next post will be about Berkhamsted Castle.

Blakes Wood

There's nothing more relaxing than a walk in the woods. And Blakes Wood in Danbury is the perfect place to go in order to 'blow the cobwebs away' <3 p="">
