Day 44 10-06-2014 Tue Guildford

Long drive from Mundford to see Joan’s nursing pal in Guildford. On the way we availed ourselves of Ely’s cathedral. Ely (actually the Isle of Ely) was originally an island sitting in a swamp. The interior of the cathedral was one of the most beautiful we have seen.

On to London then. We did the Dartford Crossing of the Thames on the east side of the city. It was a good bridge, but not nearly as beautiful and impressive as the Humber bridge at Hull several days earlier.

We had almost a full day with the friends, very enjoyably spent. A walk up Guildford Hill gave, on the northern side, distant views of significant features on the horizon, including London (we could make out the Shard) and Heathrow T5. On the southern side of the hill was a view of the beautiful North Downs.
