Where we went in the Kamper this Easter

trentham monkey forest

Trentham Monkey Forest. Had a very pleasant couple of hours watching the monkeys. Well worth a visit if you like wildlife and woodland. The staff were knowledgeable and enthusiastic.

National Trust property in co-operation with Staffordshire County Council, Shugborough Hall was inherited by Royal photographer and ’60’s icon, Patrick Lichfield. Another super day out with the family. Picnic by the Kamper for 6 , on the grass. My son in law tried hard to encourage my daughter to take up the offer to borrow the Kamper for a holiday break. Greatly enjoyed seeing Patrick Lichfield’s former apartment. He sadly passed away in November 2005. We met him briefly by chance in amusing circumstances in France in the early 1990’s. He almost rode into me on his tatty old racer bike alongside Lac de Maine. Quite a character. “What a stupid place to stand !” he said. Still managed to smile for my wife though.

The Kamper goes in for the first year’s service tomorrow at Nissan.
