Runnymede to Windsor.

Supplies were bought from Waitrose in Egham, a town I last visited 40 years ago which has changed very much for the better.

We stayed for the day at Runnymede to visit the Commonwealth Air Forces memorial, J.F. Kennedy memorial and the site where King John signed the Magna Carta. 

New additions to the area to mark the 800th anniversary are the twelve bronze jurors chairs.

Three jurors Ray, Diane & Sue.

Both crews made the trip to the jurors chairs and the Magna Carta, Sue sat out the rest of the tour as dodgy knees wouldn't get her to the top of the hill.

From the look out at the top of the CAF shrine we could see clearly central London twenty miles away, Heathrow, Wembley Stadium and Windsor Castle.

Today we made our way in convoy to Windsor where we found  room on the Eton bank, the deeper drafted Ferndale breasted alongside FL. A leisurely stroll around town followed by a decent  lunch in the Two Brewers and a view of the long walk.

Sue & Diane at the end of the long walk.
