For those of us that grew up there, the fact that Chard, Somerset is the birthplace of powered flight is well known. It’s also somewhat ironic considering I spent the vast majority of my childhood years as a resident of Chard, yet of all the modes of transport out there, flying is by far my least favourite!
Still, I will always be proud of my roots so I’m quite happy to have the welcome to Chard sign as my image of the day.
To be honest, I didn’t spend much time there today – just enough to pick up daughter Hannah and head over to Taunton for the afternoon. What’s Taunton famous for did you ask? It’s home to the Cidermen of course – Somerset County Cricket Club!
