Coombe Country Park, Coventry

This was taken around noon time today at Coombe Country Park, outside Coventry.  I have taken a few photos here......such a beautiful place.  This is a view across the lake on to fields filled with sheep.  It is a peaceful moment found between Christmas and New Year, 2011.

Dawn's Early Light - Ansty Golf Centre

This is an untouched photograph taken on 18th December, 2011, at 8 am.  The sky was sensational and the ground was frosty and cold.  It snowed about an hour later.

Goathland, England - Harry Potter and Heartbeat Country

Yes, this is the train station used in the first 'Harry Potter' film.  It is located in a village called Goathland.  Goathland was used in the filming of Heartbeat TV series.  The village is called Aidensfield in the TV series.

A 3 hour drive north from Coventry will take you to the Yorkshire Dales where this station, many beautiful villages and challenging driving conditions can be found.  Worth the visit but not in the deep of winter.

Edward VII Pillar Box -Newcastle Upon Tyne

To be fair, Newcastle Upon Tyne is not quite 'Around Coventry'.  You can drive there in about 3 1/2 hours (about 210 miles) and believe me it is worth the visit.  I will be posting a few photos over the next few days following our recent visit.

I seem to have a fascination with English letterboxes.  This one dates back to early 1900's and is located in the streets running through Newcastle University.
