Calais – June 03

There was a spell until 1558 when Calais was a part of England. It was occupied by the Nazis in the 2nd World War when it was razed to the ground and finally divorced by UK as a result of Brexit. The architecture is austere post war, but we looked for some evidence of it’s traditional prosperity as a transport hub and thriving centre for wool production. The Hotel de Ville and theatre are lovely buildings as was the park. Sadly the cafe was a disappointment. But the long lie in and late breakfast were a long overdue and a welcome indulgence! Our tour on our Bromptons, Linda’s a new electric one, was a great success and it is clear that my 41st anniversary present to Linda is greatly appreciated!
