5 things you never knew about Slough Station…

Slough Station - why on earth would I write a post about this? I'm sure most commuters hate it, squeezing out of their packed trains and trying to get out! But for Tyler, this is one of his favourite places to go - somewhere he can sit and watch endless trains, and where we catch…

Burnham Beeches : Slough – it’s not so bad

Copas ‘Pick Your Own’ Farm : Slough – it’s not so bad

A Tale of Two Woods: Langley Country Park & Black Park

This week we discovered not one, but two woodlands right on our doorstep! We had always noticed cars parking along the Uxbridge Road on the way back home and people disappearing into the bushes (sounds dodgy I know!) Well I did a bit of investigating (ie google), and discovered it was in fact Black Park…
