This is more of a photographic record than a written account – the words will be few and the pictures will be many!
It was half-term so the trains were pretty full but luckily not everybody appeared to be going where we were going, and as for the weather – it was absolutely blooming marvellous!
Setting off down Fleet Street en route to Doctor Johnson’s house we first called in at the Temple Church:
Leaving the church and proceeding further down Fleet Street we encountered a drinking fountain – although I am not sure that I would wish to drink from this one, and some reminders of the Street’s past.

In all an excellent day and many thanks to Beth. We even managed to get a connecting train back to Burnham!
