Our main objective was to hit Sainsbury at Staines - that bit worked but it was a long way and a lot of steps to lump heavy shopping. A pleasant little spot in the town centre
with a few sculptures and a water feature plus a park at the top of the steps
The rather lovely Swan Hotel across the River
Shopping done, we were about to pull pins when another narra arrived saying the collar had come off the gate at the next, Bell Weir, lock and it was likely to be closed all day
So had lunch in town and prepared to stay here
but it did re-open and we reached Runnymede but, can you believe, we've just about no internet signal so I'm giving this up after 2 hours. Just going to try to 'save and send'
