I return again and again to the lake in Kew Gardens. On the summer day of his visit, the water was almost completely covered in duckweed, greatly enjoyed by the ducks and moorhens

We walked across grazing land which looks towards Mull, Staffa and Ulva, to arrive on the North East shore at the White Strand of the Monks (Traigh Ban nam Manach). This was the site of a massacre of the resident monks by raiding Vikings in C9.  A solitary oystercatcher was the only sign of life on a cloudy day.

Now a peaceful park in Chiswick, Turnham Green village was a battle site in the First English Civil War on 13 November 1642. King Charles was approaching London to be faced near the village by over 20,000 London soldiers, hastily assembled to defend the way into the city. Charles is said to have made a grave strategic mistake by withdrawing, rather than diverting to meet up with reinforcements in Kent. He retreated first to Hounslow, then Reading. This is reputed to be the battle site closest to the centre of London during the war, although it is also said a battle barely happened here at all.

This spectacular landmark on the Suffolk coast is now scheduled for demolition. Two fierce storms in February 2020 took away much of the surrounding beach, destroyed buildings and the concrete pathway round the lighthouse. It is hoped many artefacts of its will be preserved.
