Stratford Upon Avon, Warwickshire - 7th October 2007

It's the day after Matt and Nikki's wedding reception thrash at the Marriott Rennaissance in Solihull. On the way back, we decide to drive via the town of Stratford Upon Avon - former home of William Shakespeare, and now home to a million tourists - to have a poke about and visit a few old houses.

Green fuzz-balls and intricate mediaeval timbers in the Garrick Inn, Stratford

Carvings in the Garrick Inn's timbers

Shakespeare references are compulsory: the HSBC's branch has a nice gold-leaf thing going on

A big black-and-white dog strolls by black-and-white buildings

The light and airy interior of the chapel near to Nash's House

On the High Street: a random motor-tricycle is playing country music to the world

The back garden of Shakespeare's birthplace

Bill's pad: Shakespeare's house

A couple of chav-ettes eat chips by a brace of K6 phone boxes

A throng of wildfowl

The swans go nuts for bread

Some dude feeds the multitude of swans

A longboat comes in through the lock

Later, Nosher and Isobel go for a row

Isobel has a go at rowing

A hand-cranked ferry crosses the river

The ferry in its dock. A swan drifts passed in black and white

The remains of New Place (where Shakespeare died) in the gardens of Nash's house
