The start at Quorn and Woodhouse station
Coffee stop at Wistow Rural Centre
Launde Abbey retreat
Lunch stop with views over the rolling countryside and buzzards soaring
Arrival at Abbey Pumping Station
Some huge machinery, would have liked to see it in operation.
The National Space Centre next door
Daleks rolling around greeting arrivals ...
... and Cybermen giving high-fives
Busy inside, but free access to many of the exhibits
Apparently a genuine Soyuz 7K-OK, not a mock-up
Thor and Blue Streak rockets suspended over the cafe ...
... and from time to time Thor does a simulated take-off and emits smoke!
