We travelled by coach, on a trip organised by the Marlbrough branch of the EG. The highlight of the trip was to be able to go into the textile storage area of the museum and see their wonderful collection. We were given permission to photograph as well... wonderful. these pockets were on display last year at the Bath costume museum -find out why Lucy Lockett lost her pocket.
There is also a great collection of love spoons.

In the vast grounds of the Museum, they have restored a medieval Roman Catholic Church and are in the process of painting the murals. so colourful.
I walked all round the site and noticed how much my feet were aching, when it was time to catch the coach home. It did not seem long before we were leaving Wales and crossing the Severn Bridge again into England.
