An amazing collection of papers over the years. Very interesting to see the development of "news" as a genre, how it has been promoted and repressed how it has been used as propaganda. Technology is not forgotten as it changed news from a weekly circular via daily to multiple daily broadcasts to almost instant. All of this is presented in interesting ways. Then you can read today's front pages from around USA and the world. We spent a day!

You can't get in except as part of the whole Luray Caverns complex. This does not deserve a separate listing, but Google refuse to edit it to reflect that it is not a stand alone place.

Very pleasant pub on the banks of a canal, with good sized car park. We had sandwiches for lunch which were delivious. Getting to it in the first place was a bit convoluted, with only one road passing it that goes round the houses to get there.

RSPB Saltholme is primarily about birdwatching, with several hides spread over the reserve on different lakes. A wide variety of lakes and ponds of differing depths, scrapes, mud, grass, bushes. Winter is at least as good as summer, with thousands of birds over wintering here and close by. A small but well stocked shop, a cafe with a traditional cafeteria style menu, kids play area. There are also regular school visits and a classroom. One of the hides nearest the centre is set out for wheelchair access with a full glass wall looking out over one of the ponds. Most hides are wheelchair accessible with hard packed trails to them.

Fascinating history, though there is not a lot to see they do their best to make us understand what it was like at the time. Very useful diorama in the visitor centre showing the time lines of the various attacks.

Easy to park, regular convenient service. Stops at the hospital and near the city centre.

Short but challenging course. Be careful of the river out of bounds on the right of 3 holes, and the railway on the left of two holes. Friendly professional, friendly bar and catering staff. Badly wet in winter 2015/16 but hard work by the green keepers means it is in great condition for summer 2016.
