The Conduit - The Parade, South Street, Sherborne
A walk around a rainy Sherborne in Dorset.
This was the Sunday that had heavy rain at the end of April 2012.
A few days after my visit The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh visited the town as part of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee visits to towns and cities around the country.
Sherborne was the nearest town to our holiday cottage in Dorset.
Sherborne is an abbey town.
