Spotted these lovely trees on our walk yesterday - Copper Sykamores.

It rained overnight and we set off in a drizzle this morning.

For a second we thought we were lost when we spied this Bunnings store through the trees!!!! Tony's mouth was watering for a decent sausage!

One of the biggest failures in the country - they just didn't take off. They don't do much DIY work here and don't have big gardens, so it was destined for failure. Someone didn't their homework.

We went for a wander around town, but being Sunday afternoon it was very quiet.

The Chapel on the bridge is one of only 4 surviving medieval bridge chapels in the country. It was built in 1483 as part of a new bridge.

The Chantry bridge was built to replace the original bridge built before 1485.

Rotherham was founded in the middle ages deriving it's name from the River Rother and the old English word 'ham' meaning 'homestead'.
