Last week I went to Loughborough for a couple of days to kick off my visiting Fellowship there. A very good trip, I met with a few staff and several students in my old department and we have quite a few bits of research lined up for the coming months. I stayed in the Holywell Guest House, just around the corner from the house we lived in for a couple of years and well worth a visit! I managed to catch up with a couple of friends too. The return journey wasn't so great (a slight delay to the third train of four meant missing the last one and being bumped onto a much later replacement bus - boooo!) but overall a good trip.

|Some most welcome Rich teas to finish the day.|
|The view from my hotel room was perhaps not the best|
|Did you know that Lincoln was the birthplace of the tank? Me neither.|
That's the University of Lincoln in the background by the way.
|The cathedral and old town are quite pretty|
