We moved on to Bakewell, Derbyshire, where we had sampled the pudding (or tart) in 2011.
There’s a lovely mediaeval bridge there over the River Wye:-
The river was teeming with what looked like trout the day we were there last May. A small weir just upstream prevented them from getting further I think:-
The War Memorial is placed on what is now a roundabout in the centre of town:-

The reason we swung by Saffron Walden again was to take a look at Audley End which we couldn’t fit in last time.
Audley End has been described as one of the finest Jacobean houses in England.
The hedge on the left above is a curious looking feature:-
Audley End’s grounds were laid out by Capability Brown – as these two photos – showing diffrent bridges – would suggest:-
During World War 2 the house was a training centre for the Polish contingent of the Special Operation Executive (SOE.) This memorial to the 108 members who died as a result of their service lies in the grounds to the front right of the house:-

This elegant bridge over the Tay at Aberfeldy was built by General George Wade as part of his military road building programme to pacify the Highlands after the Jacobite Rebellion of 1715.
