WEST COUNTRY Bicycle tour - July 1998

This was a tour of the English West Country in the summer of 1998. I bought a return train ticket from Cheshire to Taunton in Somerset. I bike on the northern parts of the West Country peninsular via Barnstaple, Newquay and St Ives. At objective was a first visit to Lands End. After Lands End I took a train from Penzantes to Dorchester in order to visit the Lawrence Sites.

Thomas Hardy memorial, near to his cottage in Dorset.
The grave of T E Lawrence (before the brick pathway was layed down)
Clouds Hill. When I visited in year 2010 the admission was £4.50, having risen from £2.30 in 1998. A mark of inflation indeed.
