    A chance to take a closer look and learn more about this iconic piece of history and architecture.
    New date for diaries: Saturday 17 September. Tower tour at 2.30 pm
    Cost £8 per adult. £5 for under 16s. Up to 15 places available, but I have provisionally booked 10.
    Plan will be to arrive by bike and return to cars by bike. Details of route nearer the time.
    I need to know interest in this asap to confirm numbers. So please let me know by the end of this next week if interested.
    If you just want to do the tour that’s fine but still let me know. Email, SMS, WhatsApp etc.

    Unfortunately the cycle ride and tour are cancelled.
    St Mary’s have just announced that the Civic Ceremony for the Queen is being held at 2.30pm with the bells sounding from 1 pm. Obviously this clashes with our scheduled tour.
    I may rebook for sometime in the Spring. This will have to be a whole new booking with a new list of people as I doubt all of us will be around to go.
    Have a good weekend anyway.
