Today, I collected guests at Heathrow Airport and then embarked on a tur of villages in Essex connected with personal ancestry dating back to the 16th century.  We visited churches at Sheering, Writtle and Brocking finishing the day at Colchester, an ancient own with Roman origins and an impressive castle. The hotel we are staying tonight has two prison cells dating from the 19th century when it was jused as a transit stop for prisoners en-route to London.
