The civil parish of Steeple Morden can be found just a few miles south-west of the city of Cambridge; it s sole, much-loved pub, The Waggon & Horses, is located at its heart, opposite the church. Diners and drinkers are all offered a warm welcome by Mark and Paula and their dedicated team of friendly staff.
Bring a hearty appetite, as the specials boards and menus are brimming with a wrerath of home-cooked seasonal fare. Fresh Grimsby fish cooked in The Waggon's own beer batter is a speciality.
I'd suggest booking ahead for Sunday lunch; it's a popular spot for locals and visitors alike and is great for all the family, with three choices of meat available and a kid's play area and pets corner to keep the little ones entertained. The Waggon is also just as good for a cool pint in the sunny garden - the bar always stocks three real ales, including Greene King 1PA, St Edmunds and a changing guest ale.

The Viking Age has left its mark on Nynashamn. There are as many as 27 rune stones in the municipality, which makes it one of the muncipalities with the most rune stones in Sweden. Several of these rune stones are along the old road between Djursnas and Vansta, the so-called Runestensvagen ("the rune stone road")
There are grave-fields, as this was a densely populated district during Iron Age. The cultural landscape is strikingly beautiful. A suggestion to enhance your excursion is to visit the beautiful churches in Osmo and Sorunda or discover the mysticism surrounding the authentic beacon on Vardkaseberget, which also offers magnificent views over Himmerfjarden. Runstensvagen is best followed in your own car.
Nynashamn Tourist Information Office will provide you with a map and more detailed information on where the different remains can be found. We can also help you hire a car.

Popular among the locally stationed airmen during World War 11, this inviting 18th Century building, with its traditional thatched roof, has been a pub for over 150 years. Nowadays, under the name of The Plough, it is known for its excellent choice of real ales, lagers and wines - not to mention its tasty, wholesome home-cooking.
The range of filling lunches makes it a perfect midday stop-off for those visiting nearby attractions such as the Imperial War Museum, or perhaps just taking a scenic walk through the rural village of
Duxford. As the day draws to a close, The Plough is a wonderfully cosy setting from which to watch
the landscape grow dark, as you enjoy a warming drink or satisfying evening meal. The menu is packed with classics and accompanied by an ever-changing selection of specials; you'resure to find your own favourite among the options.
