A drive to Hereford, about 70 miles away, to visit Hereford Cathedral, home of the 13th century Mappa Mundi, and maybe take in the Cider Museum also, seemed like a good idea today.
It’s a cloudy, overcast day but that’s to be expected. According to a proverb: if it rains on St Swithun’s Day it will rain for fourty days. And on July 15th it rained so here we are, 7 days into the 40.
One thing St Swithun didn’t forecast was endless roadworks in July. On the 5 mile journey on the narrow road from Purton to the next village there are 3 sets of roadworks/traffic signals.
And one more I didn’t capture because the lights were green and I wasn’t sure I could explain to all the drivers behind me why I wanted to stop and take a photo of the traffic lights.
