3rd April 2014 Three Town Tour 16

The news says best not exercise as the air is very polluted at the moment. The SE wind has brought not only sand and dust from the Sahara Desert, but air pollution from across Europe. That, and a period of high pressure, has meant folk with breathing or heart problems should best stay indoors for a bit. I think that lets me out so took a gentle spin around the three towns closest to my home, Warwick, Leamington and Kenilworth.

St Nicholas Church Warwick

Couldn't get the whole of the tall spire in today, so settled for the very nice magnolia tree just about to burst into full blossom.  St 'Nick's' is a fine old church situated near to Warwick Castle.  Built 200 years ago on the site of an older church, this gothic style building has a long association with the Castle and the Earls of Warwick.

Parade Leamington Spa

A very impressive flower display on the lower Parade at Leamington. The buildings in the distance are All Saints Parish Church and the Royal Pump Rooms and library.

Wood sculpture Kenilworth

Seen in a garden on the Warwick Road at Kenilworth, a nice example of carvings on an old tree stump. I think the occupier of this house is a tree surgeon which might explain it.
Very expertly done.

After just under 16 miles, my heart was still going and my lungs appeared to be intact. Despite the high level of bad air, felt no different to normal!
