Today was the beginning of our summer holiday. Our first destination was in Kent where we were attending a choral concert in the evening, before an overnight stop in Essex on our way to Suffolk. We decided to make use of the Saturday to do several branches of Waterstones on our way to Kent. The first was Andover in Hampshire where we stopped for breakfast! The Waterstones is in a small but modern shopping centre and has a cosy feel.
We didn’t have a lot of time in the town as we had more places to visit, but we thought the Town Mills (a former flour mill) building was very pretty. We did have to hurry past the troll before it ate us…
We also spotted this plaque – the words are from A A Milne’s poem ‘Halfway Down’ which appeared in his collection of poetry When We Were Very Young. It’s obviously some kind of town trail (it’s numbered 8), but Googling hasn’t revealed the significance of the poem to Andover!
