Beddy visits…Lincoln

Wednesday, July 27th, 2011

Today Emily and I visited a place called Lincoln on our deliveries.

The Romans conquered this part of Britain in AD 48. We visited Lincoln Castle which actually stands on the site of a considerably older Roman fort. We took a guided tour around the castle and learnt about the history of the castle. It was very interesting!

Beddy visits… Malton

Wednesday, July 20th, 2011

This week we went back in time to wartime Britain! When we were in Malton to we came across Eden Camp which is a Word War Two prisoner of war camp.  We learnt how during the war nearly two million children had to leave their homes and live with strangers to escape bombing. During this time food was rationed so children rarely ate sweets or cake. Hearing all of the stories about the war made us appreciate how much freedom we have today.

Beddy visits… Statford-Upon-Avon

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

This week Emily and I were out making deliveries for the Royal Mail in Stratford-Upon-Avon.

Stratford-Upon-Avon is where world-famous playwright and poet William Shakespeare was born. When we were there we visited the Globe theatre and saw one of his plays “Romeo and Juliet”, which is the most famous love story in the world and was written over 400 years ago.

Beddy visits… Staffordshire

Wednesday, July 6th, 2011

Today we made some deliveries to Trentham in Staffordshire.

When we were there we visited a monkey forest home to 140 monkeys that are free to roam around and allow people to get up close and say hello! It’s great to see these Barbary Macaques monkeys running around on 60 acres of land without a cage in sight. This special breed of monkey stores food in its cheeks and is one of the only breeds of monkey that does not have a tail.
