On Sunday, we went on what I hope will be our last Uni visit for the young man, to Keele University in Staffordshire.
It isn't the young mans first choice of uni but it was a lovely little uni, but in the middle of absolutely nowhere. The atmosphere was great, but I couldn't imagine how students manage here without a car. He liked the place, but is a little unsure about the course as they offer dual subject degree's which I had never heard of!
If he ends up here, you might end up with a lodger Rosie!!!
On our way home, we decided go go back the scenic route via Leek as I have never been there and I have read so many great things about it on so many of your blogs.
Not much was open by the time we got there, but I loved what I saw and so we will be making a return trip.
It had so many great little buildings.
The war memorial is enormous and quite different to any I have seen in the UK before.
I loved the neat rows of workers cottages in the town centre.
We were delighted to find ourselves driving through "The Roaches" an area I have read about so many times on both Rosies and Louises Blogs
The scenery was truly spectacular and we vowed to spend more time around these parts too - a fabulous area that we have never explored.
In answer to Mr D's question, I do get a lot of inspiration for places to visit from blogs, magazines, the internet etc. I do a lot of research too. I am constantly amazed at the diversity and beauty of places we find - often right under our noses.
