Gliding peacefully across beautiful countryside
early on a summer morning, or in the evening
is an unforgettable experience. Unlike other
aircraft, you can watch the hot air balloon
being assembled before your eyes - just
like a giant tent ! Then climb aboard and
admire the view from the basket - no doors
closed, or windows to sit behind, it's all
out in the fresh air. Fantastic !
a suburban town south east of Nottingham,
formerly a coal-mining area is now continuous
with the former villages of Chillwell and
Wollaston. Its eastern environs are close
to the main campus of the University of
Nottingham and a favourite residential area
for its students. The old part of the town
lies on river gravel, it being a conveniently
raised area for avoiding flooding from the
River Trent to the south. It is said to
be the birthplace of author D.H.Lawrence.
