Original plan was to visit Lyme Park, but it was closed so looked at map and said let's try this route and we came to Buxton. In a valley but it must be a wealthy one by the looks of the homes and the fact that the place used to have its own Baths and a giant palatial hotel (The Palace). Several big homes are now used by solicitors, consultants etc. None were converted to model railways.

Hi Phil & Jenny, Your time is fast coming to an end, isn't it ? That 4 or 5 weeks have flown. I love the look of Buxton Village - a very pretty place with quite a lot of history, by the looks. With all the photos you have taken, you will have enough memories to last a life time !!! Looks like the weather is starting to improve over there and yet here today, it has been like a winters day. Quite cold and a lot of rain - good for the garden though !! John is still not 100 %. It's going to be a long time till he is back exhorting again. Damien did the exhort today, and Graeme will do it next week - they are doing a marvellous job rotating their platform duties. Hope you enjoy Dubai in a couple of days - it will be interesting to hear what you think about it. Have a good flight back and God Willing we will catch up with you when you return. I don't know if we will see you straight away, as we fly to Melbourne on the 30th April, returning on the 8th May. But we will catch up at some stage in the not too distant future. I have got so much on this week before we go - it always gets busy just when you want to get away. All our Love to you both, and hoping you are both keeping well, Glenys & Sam xxx P.S Your mum was at the meeting, she seems quite good, seems to be handling everything ok, but of course I'm sure when she is on her own, she sheds a quiet tear.

Hi Sam and Glenys, thanks for the update. Have a safe trip yourselves. Have just done an online check-in and our hotel/B&B/Guest House is only 5 mins from Gatwick. Love to all you guys and hopefully John will be back on his feet sooner rather than later. Phil & Jenny
