The 2011 Easter Tour saw a select group of UL members venture abroad to the other side of the Severn Estuary and visit the Land of Jones. As well as the ringing at the beautiful Abergavenny, the UL went down the Big Pit coal mine involving dressing up in mining clothes and getting a miner’s lamp to play with as well! The following day saw us head to a steam railway (mainly to keep Nick Jones quiet) as well as ringing at Merthyr Tydfil before heading back for a cheeky drink with the OUS (who had their outing in Devizes on the same weekend) on the way home. Thanks very much to Mariko for organising a great tour.
