May's Meanderings has changed. Over the past three years we have compiled a list of over 20,000 places to visit in England, Scotland, Ireland and Wales.

We are now producing a weekly newsletter, focusing on Britain or Ireland on a county by county basis..

If anyone would like to see what the newsletter contains, please e-mail

We are supporting Talking Newspapers for the Blind and so it has been decided to put a charge on this project. The first Meanderings is free. If you decide you want more, there will be a charge of £5, or $5 or €5 a year. That will cover a minimum of 50 newsletters.

There will be five categories covered in each newsletters:

Places of Worship - churches, abbeys, temples, cathedrals
Historical Sites - castles, palaces, stately homes, museums, birthplaces, etc.
Nature - wildlife reserves, Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, SSSI, woodlands, parks, gardens
Public Attractions - beaches, zoos, theme parks, open farms, steam railways
Picturesque - thatched cottages, windmills, lighthouses, landscape.

MM1 starts with Bedfordshire and includes Bushmeads Priory, Elstow (including Moot Hall and Elstow Abbey), Animal Edge, the Forest Centre & Marston Vales Millenium Country Park, Centre Parcs Woburn, Cardington Sheds and the Octagon Woods.

MM2 covers Berkshire and includes Basildon House & Park, Douia Abbey, Thatcham Reedbeds, Bekonscot Model Village, Caversham Court Gardens, and Sonning Eye.
