Places Norris is thinking of taking his bank holiday

Keswick, UK
The British Lawnmower Museum.

Barometer World.

And, wait for it,

The Cumberland Pencil Museum, located just outside beautiful Keswick, pictured above.

It's not the first time The Pencil Museum has been remarked upon on this blog, either.

You can imagine how I almost peed myself with glee when they mentioned these museums.

Corrie Canucks....two words....

ROAD TRIP!

Oh please Jacqueline, you'd go anywhere they served booze.

I think there should be a drunk old slag museum that they can stick me in.

That's in Preston.

Jacqueline said...

OOOOOOOOOOOH snap!

Take that Preston!

(PS, where's Preston?)

It's a small town in Lancashire. I changed trains there once. It's not a place people would normally consider visiting.

Oi! Preston can't be all THAT bad. BBC1 just did their Big Weekend there.

Oh no wait...that COULD have something to do with the ready supply of teenagers and booze.

And I agree with a Corrie Canuck road trip to Keswick. We can stay with my Grandparents. They'll LOVE that.
Langholm - one main street...5 pubs and a wine bar. Does that sound good or what?

if you listen very carefully, you can hear the sound of glacia packing her bags in Toronto.
