Those Magnificent Men in their Flying Machines

Location: Stoke Maries

Date: Monday 11th March 2019

Price: £55 Per Person

Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines: Monday 11th March

Barely a decade after the Wright Brothers took to the skies impossibly brave young men climbed into flimsy aeroplanes of wood, canvas and glue and took off from the grassy runway of a requisitioned farm at Stow Maries in Essex to defend their country against Zeppelin attacks. In the year that marks the 100th anniversaries of both the Great War and the RAF we celebrate Those Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines with an afternoon musical show in the authentic men’s Mess Hall of the world’s last surviving Great War Aerodrome. Our performers, singer John Knowles and virtuoso Paul Higgs on keyboards, will take you on a musical journey from the first days of flight, through the glory and pain of the Great War, and on to the daring exploits of the Second World War. Interspersed with snippets of the historical milestones of Stow Maries, the Royal Flying Corps and the RAF this memorable afternoon runs through the whole gamut of emotions stirred by the exploits of the young men and women who gave everything for their country. Songs include Those Magnificent Men, Snoopy Versus The Red Baron, Wing & A Prayer, and all of the most loved Great War standards through to The Dam Busters March, some 1940s Boogie Woogie and, of course, a bit of We’ll Meet Again and The White Cliffs of Dover. A Mess Hall Afternoon Tea with sandwiches, sausage rolls and scones is served and the afternoon also includes an optional guided tour of the Stow Maries site and time to see the Museum. There’ll be some sing-a-long opportunities, a bit of dancing if you wish then its back to the coach ready to head home at 3.45pm

The Peoples Post

Location: London

Date: Tuesday 26th March 2019

Price: £52 Per Person

Peoples Post: Tuesday 26th March.

Today we explore a lesser-known London district with a very important place in the history of our nation. We tell the story of posting a letter from earliest times to the coming of the GPO, visit the brand new Postal Museum and take a ride on the Mail Rail beneath the streets of London. Meet our expert Blue Badge guide for morning refreshments included in the tour fee at The Museum of London. We will tailor the morning walking to suit your group. We can do the whole morning on foot or we can start off on foot but finish by coach. We will seek out visible reminders of our postal history from the inns where the mail coaches called with their scarlet clad, blunderbuss wielding guards to the coffee houses that were part of the Penny Post network. We use eyewitness accounts from such as Mendelssohn and Samuel Taylor Coleridge and recount tales of drunken poaching mailmen, corrupt politicians, the Victorian internet and a canny public utterly determined to avoid paying for their post. It’s a cracking tale. We’ll practice blowing our mail horn and follow the visual clues of old parish markings, street signs, property marks and shop signs to deliver our Penny Post letters from the time before house numbers or postcodes. We’ll look at how the GPO added to the landscape of street furniture alongside the existing bollards and milestones, cattle troughs and stink pipes as we wend our way from pillar to post. Free time for lunch today in Exmouth Market where there’s a thriving lunchtime food market (and a secret park full of benches) alongside traditional pubs and cafés. In the afternoon we visit the brand new state of the art Postal Museum to enjoy an incredible collection spanning five centuries and covering everything from ground breaking design and quirky technology to the intimacy of personal letters. During the afternoon we’ll also ride the hidden tunnels of the Mail Rail – a unique piece of industrial heritage that kept the capital’s communication network flowing for over 75 years. There’s time to buy refreshments before heading home at 4.30pm

Royal Landscape: Thursday 11th April.

Now for the first time ever we can take you into spectacular areas of Windsor Great Park that are normally reserved for Royal Family’s private use where Her Majesty rides her horse and HRH the Duke of Edinburgh takes his carriage for a spin. The day also includes a visit to Windsor Farm Shop, free time for lunch by Windsor Castle and a tour of The Savill Garden. We begin the tour with time to buy refreshments at Windsor Farm Shop. The Queen is still a tenant farmer on the Royal Estate with 200 pedigree Jersey milking cows, a pedigree Sussex beef herd, 140 breeding sows, 1500 Lohmann Brown hens, 1000 acres of arable land and 2000 acres of grassland mainly used to feed the livestock. Your Blue Badge Guide is an entertaining Windsor specialist who has enjoyed a close working relationship with the Crown Estate for many years. We are going to begin the day with an exhilarating coach panorama of the Royal Landscape – a thousand acres of gardens, lakes and woodlands. Each century has left its own distinctive mark from William the Conqueror’s hunting ground to Queen Victoria entertaining on the shores of Virginia Water. We see where King John met the barons at Runnymede and the Golden Gates at Royal Ascot through which Her Majesty sweeps in her carriage onto the Racecourse. Meet some remarkable trees and enjoy stunning views of the castle en route to Windsor for free time lunch in the old town beneath the castle walls. In the afternoon we are joined by a member of the Crown Estate for our exclusive tour inside areas of Windsor Great Park not normally accessible by coach. We take in the Guards Polo Club and the Coronation Groves and step down from the coach to savour one of the greatest views in the Kingdom – the Long Walk from the Copper Horse. The afternoon coach tour finishes at Savill Garden. Created in the 1930s, Savill is among Britain’s greatest ornamental gardens and it never fails to charm. Our gentle guided tour, will explain the lie of the land and highlight special details. Huge herbaceous borders in Summer towering ten feet tall are simply astonishing and the Rose Garden has matured spectacularly. There will be time at the end of the afternoon to buy refreshments in the striking visitor centre with a floating roof built of larch and oak from the Crown Estate Forests

Vernacular Spectacular

Location: Thaxted

Date: Tuesday 7th May 2019

Price: £49 Per Person

Vernacular Spectacular: Tuesday 7th May

Just as the stories of ordinary people are so often lost in the noise of royalty and aristocracy so too is the majesty of our vernacular architecture lost in the shadow of palaces and churches.  We spend the morning in picture postcard Thaxted – a veritable Smörgåsbord of English vernacular architecture and in the afternoon enjoy a country tour and visit two spectacular cathedrals of wood. Please meet the expert Blue Badge Guide in Thaxted in Essex (15 minutes from Birchanger on the M11) at 10.30am for coffee (inc). Vernacular architecture is that which is domestic and functional and reflects locally available materials and skills. Already prosperous in Saxon times many mediaeval buildings survive from three boom centuries in the cutlery trade. On some of the timber framed houses there are important examples of the decorative plasterwork typical of the region known as pargetting. It’s good fun and very engaging identifying the period of the houses and their vernacular characters. Great stories too with Gustav Holst and the Red Vicar one time locals. Back to the pub for a two course lunch and in the afternoon we visit the massive and beautiful Cressing Temple Barns built during the lifetimes of Genghis Khan and St Francis of Assisi. There’s also a Tudor walled garden to enjoy and the opportunity to buy tea before making tracks for home at 4.30pm

The Vale of Belvoir with Grantham & Melton Mowbray:

We visit Grantham and discover a remarkable and rare chained library and, of course, the birth place of the Iron Lady, take in wonderful panoramas on a drive across the Vale of Belvoir and end the day in Melton Mowbray. A two course lunch with coffee is served in the palatial surroundings of Stoke Rochford Hall. Meet the Blue Badge Guide in Grantham at 10.30am for coffee and biscuits (included). Grantham has a more interesting history than many other towns that make much more of a fuss about themselves. The super little museum focuses on the town’s two big names Isaac Newton and Margaret Thatcher. Explore the recreated 17th century apothecary shop where Newton lived and take a trip down memory lane in a 1979 living room on the eve of election victory. The eclectic Thatcher collection includes her lumpy childhood bed and an iconic suit worn to meet Mikhail Gorbachev. A short walk takes us to St Wulfram’s church set in a delightful cathedral like close to enjoy the magnificent interior including the Trigge Library – three hundred books, some over 500 years old, are chained to the shelves in the UK’s first public library. We return to the coach by the shop where the grocer’s daughter from Grantham grew up – so make sure you’ve brought your cameras, and enjoy a two-course lunch with coffee. In the afternoon we tour the beautiful Vale of Belvoir enjoying wonderful views of the quilted countryside, hearing about the Witches of Belvoir and looking out for the fairy tale turrets and towers of the Duke of Rutland’s Belvoir Castle. There’s more to Melton Mowbray than pork pies. This was once the place to be seen, where Beau Brummell, King of the Dandies, gathered with his hunting chums to talk foxes and fashions and from where the expression to paint the town red came from. Explore and find a spot to buy tea before heading home at 4.45pm

Cromer Seaside Trip

Location: Cromer

Date: Saturday 29th June 2019

Price: £17 Per Person

Perched on a clifftop overlooking pristine sandy beaches in North Norfolk, Cromer found fame as a traditional seaside resort in Victorian times, when the new railway line brought visitors from the smog-filled industrial cities to take the sea air.

A legacy of those days is Cromer’s magnificent pier, which now hosts the last end-of-pier show in Europe and was voted 2015 UK Pier of the Year.

At the bottom of the cobblestoned Gangway is the Henry Blogg Museum, named after the town’s most distinguished lifeboatman, who won the George Cross and the British Empire Medal. Nearby you’ll see on the shingle the fishing boats that go out every day to catch the famous and eponymous crab. The reason these little brown crabs are so tasty, meaty and succulent? It’s because they feed on the chalk reef just offshore, the longest in the world.

Or you could just luxuriate on the 4 mile stretch of fine sand that runs from West Runton to Overstrand.

Beneath the smoke and glare from blast furnaces and forges, Black Country innovation, entrepreneurial and manufacturing skill established the region’s supremacy for the making of wrought iron.

Summer Special – Aldenham Country Park

Location: Aldenham

Date: Thursday 1st August 2019

Price: £14 Per Person

Being only 12 miles from central London it is no surprise that like London, Aldenham Country Park is steeped in history.

Aldenham Country Park lies in what was the medieval Aldenham Common which was the largest of several commons within the Manor of Aldenham. The name derives from Eladeham, meaning either ‘old home’ or Ealda’s home’. Over the years it was enhabited and/owned by King Offa in 785 AD. In the 9th century it was annexed by the Danes and was later reclaimed by King Alfred. During the Norman Conquests the Abbey of St Alban leased it to the Abbey of Westminster.

Following the dissolution of the Monasteries in 1539 a series of owners followed; in 1620 Henry Cogshill built a house called Wigbournes (probably where Haberdashers Aske’s Boys School now stands), then Sir Henry Carey (the first Lord Falkland) owned the land, followed by Lord Hollis and in the late 19th century Henry Hicks Gibbs, head of a local banking family who became Baron, Lord Aldenham in 1896.

The estate remained intact until the end of the Second World War when much of it was sold. The mansion and its immediate grounds became the Haberdashers Aske’s Boys School. Viccary Gibbs, son of the first Lord Aldenham, was a world specialist on trees and shrubs. Much of his collection was lost with the division of the estate but within the Park we still have The Avenues (a double row of Turkey Oaks flanked by hawthorn and lime) which was planted in 1880. In 1793, 68 acres of the Aldenham Estate was sold to the Grand Junction (later Grand Union) Canal Company for £2,051.

Wicksteed Park

Location: Wicksteed Park

Date: Saturday 17th August

Price: £14 Per Person

Wicksteed Park opened in 1921, making it the oldest theme park on UK mainland. Its founder, Charles Wicksteed purchased the land in 1913. His initial goal was to create a model village for the local community, however following World War One and housing reforms, Charles looked to develop a park for people to spend their leisure time. He set up a charitable trust in 1916 and went on to build a number of prefabricated houses – some of which still exist and are within the park grounds.

The large lake, a significant feature of the park, was dug by hand and steam ploughs in 1916-17. The railway, a favourite with visitors, was opened in 1931.

As an inventor and engineer Charles designed and built play equipment, often using bits and pieces from his engineering business, and creating swings and slides to thrill young and old alike. This business grew, eventually exporting play equipment to over 80 countries around the world.

Wicksteed Park is much more than an amusement park and continues to attract thousands of visitors each year to play and explore in its beautiful grounds.
