The pictures found below are from our trip to England and Scotland in June of 2002.  We drove from London to stay with our friends at Fersham Lodge in York, then on to Haltwhistle where we stayed a couple of days, on to Carlisle for a few hours, and then drove to Oban, Scotland where we began our Scotland trip.  Click here to see our Scotland pictures.  After leaving Edinburgh, we drove south and spent a couple of nights in Durham, then left for York stopping at Alnwick Castle along the way.  After spending a few nights in York, we drove back to London where we spent a couple of days seeing local London sights and even a day trip to Stonehenge and Avebury (the day after the Summer Solstice).  This page includes a few of the many pictures we took in the various locations throughout England as we drove to and from Scotland.
