Beddy Visits… Cadbury World

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012

I’m very excited to be in Cadbury World today, I’m surrounded by everything to do with chocolate.
I’ve travelled down to Birmingham to make a delivery and thought I’d stop off to learn how chocolate is made, I’ve played in chocolate rain and created my own chocolate bar which I’ve named the Beddy bar but I only made one so I’m saving it for a special occasion.

I’ve had a great time today and bought lots of chocolate for all my friends back at Bedfords Transport.

Beddy Visits… The Lake District

Wednesday, May 16th, 2012

The Lake District is such a beautiful place to visit, I’m lucky to be delivering here today.
The Lake District is home to 4 mountains and about 50 lakes and tarns including England’s biggest Lake, Lake Windermere and England’s deepest Lake, Lake Wastwater. The Lake District was carved out by glaciers over 15,000 years ago.

Many people come here to take in the scenery and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere of the tranquil backdrop whilst they take a steady stroll.

If I came back again I’d have to come for at least a week so I could take full advantage of everything the Lake District has to offer.

Beddy Visits… Whitby

Friday, May 11th, 2012

Today I’m delivering to the historic town of Whitby. The town is famous for being the birth place for the horror story Dracula. The story was written by the famous author Bram Stoker who holidayed in the fishing town, and took inspiration from the dramatic scenery around him.

The great explorer Captain James Cook began his seaman training in Whitby. Cook began the life of a sailor on the Freelove in February 1747, carrying a cargo of coal from Whitby to London. He went on to be one of the most famous early explorers travelling all over the world. There is a museum dedicated to Cook in Whitby, which I visited to learn about his adventures.

Beddy Visits… Hadrians wall

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

I’m on the East coast of England today in Wallsend in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne. A very famous British wall runs through this town.

For 400 years Britain was ruled by the Great Roman Empire, most Britions were happy to live their lives the Roman way but people from the North were not as open to the idea. More than 1,800 years ago the Romans built Hadrians wall which was used to monitor the activities of people entering and leaving England and Scotland. All who lived inside the wall were believed to be Romans and all outside were viewed as barbarians.

The wall stretched 73 miles from one side of the country right across to the other. It was 15 feet high and 10 feet wide, some of the wall can still be seen today. The wall is such an amazing site I love learning about the history of our country.
