Default Nostalgia is not like it use to be!

Skimming through my photo library I found some old pictures of stuff we've done. Anyone remember this?

Was a great day and a good laugh

Your photos Neil?
Would the first be the old Severn crossing from The Ferry Hotel? If so that is where I spent last weekend.
Second looks like Tintern Abbey

Yes thats correct Mike and Myself stayed at the Ferry hotel when we were reccying the Forest of Dean Annual Meet a few years back and also Tintern Abbey and Littledean Jail. The guy at Littledean was particularly unfriendly when we asked about group discounts said "if you dont want to pay the proper price to come in then you can bugg*r off lol
