On Good Friday, we traveled to Surrey. Prior to leaving, Claire and I had searched the internet for things to do in the county. Stupidly not realising that Legoland was in that part of the country, we decided to visit The Brooklands Museum. Despite being a little dubious of what to expect, it wasn’t bad – a museum of cars, buses and planes. I have never been on a plane before, so was excited about the prospect of stepping foot on one, despite the fact it would be firmly rooted to the ground.

I was star-struck to meet Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

This was either a very realistic sculpture of a man; or a very, very dead man.

The Bath City trophy cabinet

Luckily we didn’t break down, so didn’t need to call The RAC

Yes, that really is Concorde

A plane cockpit. Sadly , I am yet to get my pilots licence, so couldn’t fly it.

Some horses. Like the man in the earlier photo, these are very good models or very dead corpses.

The plane I was brave enough to enter

From the bus museum. Not an X39 in sight.

Some WWII weapons.

An F1 car – driven by Ayrton Senna.

  • About Me

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
