Flaws ~ Bastille


The other day I went on a small college trip to an old victorian town called Blists Hill. It's a little village that has been preserved for many years, the houses, shops & work places haven't changed including everything inside them.  When I got there I had to go straight to the bank  & change my "modern" money for pennies & pieces of silver as thats all they would accept in the village. 

The village goers & shop keepers all wore victorian clothes & we had the traditional victorian cooked fish & chips washed down with Fentimans Old Cola. So tasty.

There is also a very small carnival with a few rides for kids & even a coconut shy! Don't get too excited ;) 


























On one of the streets there was a small shop with a lady who sold her wares which consisted of molded plaster in tudor roses, animals & all sorts!


I couldn't leave without buying something! 



I even made a new friend!!

  16. Omg! my whole family come from Telford. Seeing Blists Hill makes me miss home so much. It's so much fun and the bread from the bakery is lush :)They do an amazing fireworks display on bonfire night!
    Did you have a lesson in the school when you were there?
