National Memorial Arboretum

This week Val and I did a visit to the National Memorial Arboretum in Staffordshire.  We did the visit in a day trip.   Having booked our train tickets in advance they were fairly reasonably priced.   I also arranged for a cab to collect us from Lichfield Trent Valley Station to take us to the Arboretum.    

We were welcomed into the Arboretum and we bought a guidebook that includes a map. Our first visit was to the Naval Service Memorial which is a recent addition and it really is lovely. 
We then saw the Royal Air Force memorial 
before we went up to the Armed Forces Memorial

Following lunch we went off to find the Railway and RNLI memorial passing by many others on the way. 

We found that the whole place is peaceful, calming a very special place and I would love to go back one day.  

Plenty more photos on flickr.
