Spring Visit 2020

Phew we finally made it!  After two years of cancellations due to Covid the tour went ahead this week.

Special thanks need to be passed on to our amazing Tour Guide Dr Andrew Thomson (www.drttours.co.uk) who we originally organised the tour with back in 2019.  Without his help this trip could have easily been a total disaster or not happened at all!

Below are a few photos of the sites we visited as a taster for the full report that will be in the June issue of Alderson Roots.
