Geo-Trips :: Rain, rain go away!

Oxfordshire

A drive from Marston, Sat, 28 Dec 2019 by Basher Eyre

AS Creedence Clearwater Revival so aptly put it "Have You Ever Seen the Rain?"LinkExternal link Well, if you were in England during November and December 2019 you most certainly did. Now the day I made this trip it was dank rather than damp, but boy did I find some puddles! I did, however, with a few diversions get round to some very fine churches...

Click the blue circles to see a photograph taken from that spot and read further information about the location. The blue lines indicate the direction of view. There is also a slideshow of this trip. ( )
