The excitement of crossing the river by ferry meant that several new faces joined us on this Saturday walk ( no service across the river on Sundays) and off we went from the bus station.Looking at the old buildings and the former customs house we made our way to the ferry. We did manage to cross in one go but the boat was just about full with our 15 plus the three in front of us. The fantastic dry weather held all day but we found that the cowslips had finished. It was an enjoyable walk looking at the monuments of old and reading about a child being left ” so I can go to the shops” then being abandoned aged 2 was sent to the workhouse.
The walk took us along the river and down The Walks and lunch was by the bandstand.
