Secret Tewkesbury

This garden, a plaque says, was designed by Peter Healing. What a good name for someone associated with such a peaceful place, right beside Tewkesbury Abbey! I had never come across it before yesterday, when I cycled to Tewkesbury to meet Charlotte for lunch there. I started out in drizzle, but that soon gave way to sunshine, the clouds blown along by the breeze - a perfect biking day. On the suggestion of a Cheltenham and Tewkesbury Cycle Campaign colleague, I went via Southam and Gotherington, cutting across to Tredington, and so avoided the busy Uckington road out of Cheltenham. 28 miles in all, and - away from the main roads - hardly another vehicle.
