A commemorative walk

100 years ago today Loughborough was hit with four bombs dropped from a Zeppelin airship. My good friend Bob led about 50 interested folk to visit the site of the bombs: here's a picture account of the walk. If you were unable to make it on the walk, I've created a virtual walk, or one that you can follow to do the actual walk, over on my Zeppelin trail page.

Fascinated by Bob's talk!

We were accompanied by a couple from 1916

Who had many stories to tell us

which were quite emotional

shocking

sad

humbling

and downright inexplicable!

So many interested folk!
