Strange how some people consider that towns are safer than the country so far as raids are concerned. They like to feel they are near a shelter. In day time I much prefer to be out in the open country, but at night I find it very terrifying to cycle along lonely dark roads when German planes are flying over, and I always hurry until I am back behind the solid walls of this ancient Castle.
