Did the circuit from Warwick to Newbold Comyn and diverted to get the photo of the White Horse.
Mr Jephson's House
This is in the Jephson's Gardens in Leamington. Built as a Corinthian style temple, it houses a statue of Dr Henry Jephson. He helped to promote the healing properties of the town's spa waters and he built houses for the poor. It was erected in 1849 after the town committee decided to call the gardens after the doctor. When the grandchildren were younger they would climb the steps and shout hello to the good doctor, taking delight in the echo that came out of the small building.
The White Horse (at last)
This was the third attempt to get this shot! The first time the place was closed. The second time the picture couldn't be found in the camera. (It was there, as was found later). Today, job done. This is not a real horse. If he had been, he would either be at Warwick Races today, or on his way to a lasagne somewhere. It is in the entrance to the White Horse pub in Clarendon Avenue, just off the top of the Parade in Leamington
It was bitter cold today. I made the mistake of wearing the wrong gloves which was not good. The sooner that north east wind moves round to the south, the better. Clocked 13 miles today which makes 100 for the week.
