    Talking House of Dolls - August 2014


    This place was the fifth or sixth explore after leaving at about 6.00 am. I was picked up by top chauffeur Cunningplan promptly, no go on the first explore but looks promising for a future visit. Picked up Crona and drove to another place but got turfed out by security. So a full english breakfast next , mid morning, to set us up for the day. This was the last of our explores and it turned out a fine one at that. The prior occupants of this farm were fluent welsh speakers as demonstrated by all the childrens books, posters and documents shown, complete with the Welsh Bible.
    Here's my take on it, i'm sure CP will tag his on later :-
