Beddy visits… Durham

Thursday, November 24th, 2011

Today, on our way to Newcastle on our deliveries, we stopped off in Durham to have a relaxing break from the busy roads. This small, beautiful city used to have a landscape dominated by mines and was one of the UK’s largest producers of coal.Now, to celebrate this mining history every year the city is home to the Durham International Festival of Brass which started amongst miners and trade unionists in the 20th century.

The city also has various landmarks which are renowned across the world such as the Durham Cathedral which was the set for various scenes in the Harry Potter films!

Beddy visits… The Hull Streetlife Museum

Wednesday, November 9th, 2011

Today Linqy and had some free time and visited The Streetlife Museum in Hull whilst making deliveries there. At the museum we stepped back in time to over 200 years ago to experience the sights, sounds and smells of the past. As young trucks, we found it really interesting to see how much transport has changed over the years.

Beddy visits… Whitby

Thursday, November 3rd, 2011

Today I visited the home of Dracula, Whitby, which is a place near Scarborough.

The town holds many different festivals and events each year such as the Whitby Regatta which each team wants to win.

While I was there it was the Whitby Folk Week and there were many different folk artists playing all over the town, it was a great day.
