Greenwich has more history than most people could research in their lifetime. From stone age tools found in Greenwich, the Romans in AD43, the Saxons settlement in the 10th century, to the Danes who in 1011 kidnapped Archbishop Alfege for a ransom, it is an amazing place. When the ransom was not paid, he was murdered and St. Alfege's Church stands in Greenwich to this day! Many of the things in Greenwich the tourists don't see, as they simply don't know about them.

I bet you wished you was on that red lawnmower Neil.
I remember taking Sarah and Mandy when they were little to Greenwich, with Sarah being boat mad, she was running from one side to the other in the Museum, the Commissionaire, came over and asked us to slow Sarah down, because she was so excited, then when we took the girls by the Thames and a Clipper sailed by, she could not believe what she was seeing.
The grounds are alway beautful and a joy to go round.
Will phone Sarah tomorrow.

|Brings back a lot of memories for me as well. Fifteen years since I worked there. Had to put a red Tractor on or you would say something!|

Hee Hee!, at least it was not a skip, now I wonder who had a fight with that?, Sarah thought you had changed your mind about her, because you was late, not knowing how you think you would get the better of a skip.

|Very amusing. It was not my fault that someone hit me with a skip! Or indeed cut my rope well up a tree, they have to learn!|

Never mind, I have never know anyone who is so accident prone.

|Dear Muriel, if you would like to look at my mothers reply and mine look at this http://cubits.org/Neil/thread/...|
Although you will probably feel sad, as we all do around here!
I did not forget your name at the bottom, either!
