“West stow Anglo-Saxon village is a great destination if staying in West Suffolk for a day trip. It isn’t terribly expensive, and I would have entered if I wasn’t so poor” …

Why you should read? Hello readers, and happy Friday! What could be more fitting than a summer day trip summary from a short adventure I had earlier this year, to get you in that weekend spirit! This will be the first in a series where we outline some adventures we have had earlier in the year. Please comment with your thoughts and any relatable experiences, and follow and like if you enjoy:)

Introduction

I had an interesting trip out today, looking for a 5th to 7th century Anglo Saxon village. Turns out they cost £6 to get in, and have no secure bike storage, so I took a couple of pictures through the fence, with my bike beside me.

Needless to say, it was still worth the trip in the lovely weather. The “huts” looked rather classic really.

Fullers mill gardens

On the way back, I definitely needed the loo, so stopped at Fullers mill gardens that weren’t open until 11am. I arrived at 10:30am, but my body decided it didn’t want to wait half an hour.

On approach to the cattle grid in the car-park:

A slightly hunched over lady, perhaps in her 60’s, said “you can’t get in that way”.

So I replied “which way is it to get in?”, not realising they weren’t yet open.

She said “we are not open, what are you trying to do?” ….

“Get in”, I replied.

She said “we aren’t open, but I can let you into the garden if you like”.

I said “I am sorry, but can I just use your toilet”.

She replied “well, I wouldn’t make you go in the forest!”,

I said “thank you”, not really feeling the joke due to the situation,

and she let me in to the lodge.

I then said “thank you”, leaving promptly.

Riverside … Lets go

I then found the lane I was looking for, that I had previously concluded was a shortcut on the map, and found a dead end I hadn’t anticipated, so turned left onto a footpath, which seemed to progressively get narrower between 2 bodies of water, reminding me it wasn’t a bridle way. I then passed a polite dog-walker, startled a heron that I’m sure had just spotted it’s lunch from the waters’ edge, and finally emerged onto a bridge. I recognised this, from earlier on during the bike ride. I stopped to photograph the horse pictured above. This photo was taken at West stow Hall, and is available on greeting cards at my Redbubble profile (Follow our socials below).

ASDA fun

Once I’d returned, I realised I’d taken the wrong direction back onto the road from the footpath, which explained why my approach into Bury was a little confusing, but fortunately I found my way onto the road to ASDA, my local shop. I then popped in, got a few too many bits to fit in my rucksack, and returned home with a carrier bag I was forced to buy, which bashed repeatedly against my front fork, making a kind of chainsaw style noise.

I then had a well deserved lunch…

Summary

West stow Anglo-Saxon village is a great destination if staying in West Suffolk for a day trip. It isn’t terribly expensive, and I would have entered if I wasn’t so poor…

Closing statement 

Reaseaorg blog is working on its content to enhance viewer experience. Over the previous few years, we have been gaining momentum until recently, and are currently looking at ways to continue to improve user experience of our blog.

We deeply thank all 67 of our followers, especially those who are still reading at this point in this article. You really do shape our content, and maintain our focus on producing content which appeals to our audience. Based on WordPress insights, we have learnt that certain types of product reviews are most popular, and our movie reviews are in need of the greatest modification to enhance viewing statistics.

Please feel free to advertise related content in the comments below, but all I ask is that you please be respectful. I have had some comments in the previous few months, which have gone against the spirit of my blog.

That is to be a friendly place for fans of Horror, movies, drinks, and adventures, and particularly those who are interested in writing or reading engaging content.

It is not a place for those who posted links of an explicit nature, reducing visibility of helpful comments, providing insight for my future blog writing.

I thank all of those who have liked my articles, but I won’t ask you to press like on any of my content, unless you do actually like it, as it helps me to gather further accurate information about the types of articles you, the reader, actually would like to see moving forward. 

Please comment below with ideas for future content, or any thoughts not covered by the points outlined above.

I will continue to post this statement on articles to come, to ensure optimal visibility for viewers. A big thank you to Neil Patel, for producing a helpful video on search engine optimisation (SEO), to assist my content popularity. I hope it helps anyone else who has content online to get their voice heard, be it through writing or video, or other creative forms of expression online. 

Based on insights gained, I have increased my blog content article length, introduced a “food for thought” section to encourage creator-viewer engagement, introduced a “why you should read” tag-line under each article title, added a closing statement which will be used on future articles for the same purpose of updating you on how the blog is progressing, and increased content from my critical eye.

    Though it’s probably far from this, but Dunstable.

    That’s a very hard one as I don’t holiday. I really don’t remember.

    1. Thanks so much for engaging with my food for thought section and reading the article. Sometimes trips arn’t experienced with my camera, but I will certainly look to using the most relevant photos wherever possible. Easy to follow means a lot as I have worked on this regularly 🙂
