Wanda Parker: Love the mag­a­zine. Would like to see an ar­ti­cle that could give an idea of the suit­abil­ity of wheel­chair ac­cess in­cluded in some of the vil­lages. And mo­tor home park­ing. Since be­com­ing dis­abled, our sight­see­ing has be­come cur­tailed some­what, but not our en­thu­si­asm and the use of our adapted ‘home’. Thank you for all the info, es­pe­cially the crossword.

Check out our Road Trip routes for camper­vans this month and in the past two is­sues. We do also have plans for an ac­ces­si­bil­ity fea­ture – Ed­i­tor.

Fiona Dun­can Sev­eral years ago we vis­ited Fon­tevraud, some­where I had wanted to see for many years, as I love his­tory. Walk­ing through the abbey was such an amaz­ing ex­pe­ri­ence – it was so calm and peace­ful. It felt amaz­ing see­ing the tombs of these an­cient English kings and queens. We walked through the gar­dens, which I hadn’t ex­pected to find. They were beau­ti­ful, though we were very lucky to be there on a glo­ri­ously sunny day. What amazed me most was to find out that this won­der­ful place had, un­til quite re­cently [1963] been a prison, hold­ing some of the most vi­o­lent men in the coun­try. I just couldn’t get over the con­tra­dic­tion be­tween what I was see­ing and its re­cent his­tory.
