Sixty by Sixty

After reading a post on Facebook, I have decided to set myself a challenge. I have been to some beautiful places on these wonderful Isles, yet there are many more I have not been to, some of them almost on my doorstepI am now ten weeks away from being 52, and so the challenge I have set myself is to visit 60 places I have never been before, before the end of my 60th year.

I will document my travels on here, complete with impressions of the place, and of course, the obligatory photographs. My first location will be Thornborough Henges in North Yorkshire, where we are going next weekend, for the first time ever, to celebrate Mabon.

The full list is as follows and I have just over 9 years to complete the list!
