Grimsbury Farm and Kingswood Museum

June 03, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

During our weekend back west, we planned a trip to Grimsbury Farm. Despite the patchy rain we saw some animals and enjoyed the cafe, which was wonderfully decked out in red white and blue ahead of their Jubilee Beacon lighting.

We then continued walking and decided to visit Kingswood Museum, which was a great little site for £2.50!  We saw coronation memorabilia, old motorbikes, exhibitions on local industries, the bizarre zinc-slag grotto of William Champion and his statue of Neptune (somewhat reminiscent of Tony Hancock's 'Aphrodite at the Watering Hole' :-) ).  I also managed to pick up a 30p book for the train home and some lovely woolen fabric.

(Apparently there are Great Crested Newts in that pond)
