Bressingham

I had a lovely day out yesterday, with my mum, at Bressingham steam museum and gardens. It's a place I've been to many times before: with my dad and TeenSon through the years from when TeenSon was a small boy; on my own on a day off for a quiet wander, a sit in the gardens with a good book and time to sit and write in such lovely surroundings; and now with my mum. I was delighted that she also loved my favourite part of all that Bressingham has to offer... the Foggy Bottom garden:There seems to be something for everyone here - though it's a joy for me as I love all of it! The steam museum on this occassion was full of pieces from 'Dad's Army' and 'Only Fools and Horses' as well as the usual steam locomotives, old fire engines, traction engines and bits and pieces from life on the old railways.

Del Boy's three wheeled van!

There are wonderful miniature steam railways to ride on so we enjoyed a trip all around the nursery fields on a steam train... taking this picture of the steam driven carousel on the way past (which we also, of course, had to have a go on!).

And last, but by no means least, is the lovely Dell garden...

It's such a great place to visit - especially if like me - you've been brought up by a steam-train fanatic dad, love history and love gardens... wasn't that nice of them to put it all together in one place!
