Our outing in May was to Leek in Staffordshire.
The day began with a drive through beautiful countryside in fine weather. The first stop for many when we arrived was for coffee and cakes, then exploring the town with a little retail therapy and lunch.
Our next destination was to All Saints' Church where we were met by Rowena Lovatt.
Rowena had been our speaker in May when she had told us the story of the Leek Embroideries.
For our visit she had arranged to have many of the embroideries out on display. She guided us round the works giving us much information and insight into the work, including pieces that she had worked on.
The day ended with another lovely ride home through more beautiful scenery.
The pictures below were kindly provided by Mary and Jenny as I had left my camera at home.
