Today is the 75th anniversary of the Normandy Landings, so I felt it appropriate to pay my respect at the war memorials in some of the surrounding villages.
Quite sunny though cool enough for arm warmers and gilet.
Memorial in Appleton commemorates 16 local men who fell in both World Wars.
Bigger village, Cumnor, more poor souls were lots around 30 in this case.
This memorial in Wooton was a bit too weather to discern the names engraved upon the base.
Dry Sandford parish church.
A somewhat sober and sombre trip today especially with all of the media coverage in recent days.
I did take the opportunity of taking the following as I travelled through Cumnor.
Distance – 26 miles.
Journey – Solo.
Bike – Spa Audax.
