Beamish Downton

It has been forecast today that snow has blanketed the whole country according to the BBC. In other words, there is one millimetre of snow from London to the Watford Gap and obviously the whole country has now come to a standstill.

I don’t think so. On a frosty day like this there is nothing better than a walk in the country.

We ventured forth, trudging through the winter blocked country, through mountains of snow to take another tour of Beamish. A location to the very famous series Downton Abbey. This is no film set. Beamish is a living and working museum.

Fantastic to see the church finally complete and we were treated to a detailed history of the building which parts of date back to medieval times.
