Visit to Waterloo

Somehow people always visit places far from home, and never get to see the things that are nearby. I only live 40kms from Waterloo, yet never paid a visit, except one trip as a kid with my parents and from which I only remember standing inside the famous panoramic painting depicting the battle.

So, with the 200 year anniversary and all that, time for a visit proper.

Instead of giving a full account, here is a selection of some images taken by Ann:

Yes, we know all this!
