Dickens Birthplace Museum and Red 65

yesterday after a better than expected breakfast we took a walk away from the coast to the heart of Portsmouth.

The Plaque to Dickens
One of the good things about the city is the profusion of helpful maps on the streets this helped us to find the Charles Dickens Birthplace museum.

The builder first built the house on the left for himself and then built a further four to sell/let -Dickens' father was a tenant when he worked as 'paymaster' at the dockyards.

Red 65


It's in the bag! 300 done now and from a more innocent time when carrier bags were free

We've still got some left under the stairs
