We've had a couple of nice days in Wellington, staying in a really nice place just up the hill from the city centre. Weather has been kind until this evening when it has turned very windy!

A great airshow - record crowds and the season highlight - the 2 Lancasters. And XH558 putting on a magnificent show.

RIAT 2014

Slightly disappointing show this year - no Vulcan, the new Lightning II grounded, far too many Eurofighters! Lots of things that should have been flying just on static display.

Some great display teams though, especially the Swiss and the Italians.

Lyveden New Bield

A National Trust property near Oundle - work on it stopped in 1605 on the death of its owner, and it has remained unaltered since.
