We stayed Thursday and Friday night at The Vale which is alongside the Campus of the Birmingham University. Ok, there was a little noise from exuberant yoofs for a short time around midnight but nothing very much. Friday was glorious, a springlke day with catkins beginning to emerge, crocus's and snowdrops in abundance and a real warmth in the Sun. We got all our logs cut up and the timber from Caxton's dismantled staircase, emptied the well deck, tidied the hold and put everything back in a shipshape fashion.
