The party of 28 set off from Penwortham at 9.00 am by G-Line holidays. We drove across country to North Cave Nature Reserve run by Lincolnshire Wild Life Trust. We had been there 4 years ago. We had only 2 hours to view part of the Reserve but saw many birds in this short space of time. We drove over The Humber Bridge and onto Stamford and had an hour to walk round the old town. There was a lot of old timber and stone buildings. We walked down to the river and the famous Stamford bridge.
We continued down the A1 to Cambridge arriving at the Hallmark Hotel at 5.30 pm. After complimentary coffee and tea we booked in.
The evening meal was enjoyed at 7.00 pm but was small so complaints were made and things rectified.
