Market Harborough Museum.

How a couple of hours can change what you get up to. There was I thinking my day would be a little bit of this and a little bit of that, but in fact it has already been fun. I took the broken zip out of Keith's fleece, so it is now ready for me to put the new one in, that is a job for tomorrow or Sunday. Whilst taking the zip out, I was listening to Hfm the local and very good radio station and they mentioned the Hallerton Helmet, which is on display at the Market Harborough Museum.

I said to Keith "We have not been there yet have we".

His reply was "No we could go down now if you like".

So without further a do, we closed the boat up and trundled down the town to the Museum, being careful with our footing, because the pavements were slippery.


We wandered around the museum and found the Hallaton Helmet.


The helmet is stunning and well worth a look.

The museum is free to visit, and although it is quite small, there is quite a large display regarding the Hallaton Treasure, which includes the helmet and the coins. So if your in Market Harborough you should go and have a look.

Having enjoyed our wander around the museum, we trundled back to the boat for some lunch and a coffee. Now I really am not doing anything else today. Well when I say nothing else, of course there will be dinner to cook, animals to feed, fires to stoke, bed to lay out and the general stuff I do everyday to keep body and soul together.
