Buckingham Parade

christmas-parade-buckingham-161210-2To Buckingham on the 10th December to see the Humans of Cheltenham, chosen mainly as a convenient half way meeting point.  Past memories include brief stops on the long journey to the South West and a time-eroded sign that had rendered the sign ‘Masonic Hall’ as ‘Masonic ali’ (since repaired, I see).  A charming town: market, local shops, historic buildings, quaint corners and up and down townscape.
