  • Manchester Whit Walks 29.5.2017

    I'm sure there's a book title here somewhere - what is it - oh, yes! "Started Early, Took My Dog".

    I think this is BBC reporter Tina Daheley interviewing Rogers Govender, Dean of Manchester, as he leads the Cathedral party into Albert Square for the service.

    A contingent from St. Johns Ambulance, one man carrying oxygen and a de-fib. Hope he didn't have to use them!


  • Manchester Whit Walks 29.5.2017

    The crowds are not as great as yesterday for the Great Manchester Run! I'm guessing the pink ribbons are in memory of Monday's terrorist attack.

  • Manchester 29.5.2017 (Whit Walks)

    Shouldn't have spent so long in Asda....they've started without me! (I think the time of the procession was altered. I, too, arrived late!)

  • Lichfield Cathedral

    The passageway to the chapter house leads off the north aisle and is a unique example of a medieval pedilavium where, following the example of Jesus at the Last Supper, feet are washed on Maundy Thursday. This has an open arcade of double pillars along th…

  • Lichfield Cathedral

    One of a great many kneelers, each detailing a particular Deanery. I chose to photograph the one for Rugeley, my home town. The design in the centre shows, in the upper half, the Old Chancel and the clock tower of the now demolished town hall as well as…

  • Lichfield Cathedral

    The walls of the nave lean outwards slightly, due to the weight of stone used in the ceiling vaulting; some 200–300 tons of which was removed during renovation work to prevent the walls leaning further.

  • Little Moreton Hall, Cheshire

    The Long Gallery...and a window to the west; a corresponding window at the east end of the gallery is now blocked. The end tympana have plaster depictions of Destiny and Fortune, copied from Robert Recorde's Castle of Knowledge of 1556. The inscriptions r…

  • Little Moreton Hall, Cheshire

    The Upper Porch Room leading off the Long Gallery, perhaps originally intended as a "sanctuary from the fun and games", was furnished as a bedroom by the mid-17th century. The fireplace incorporates figures of Justice and Mercy, and its central panel cont…


  • Little Moreton Hall, Cheshire

    I was told there was an Art Exhibition inside the hall. To my disappointment, all it consisted of were sheets of coloured acrylic, some of which you could peer through at the ancient wood and plaster work. Not my idea of "Art". "These site-specific int…

  • Little Moreton Hall, Cheshire

    The house stands on an island surrounded by a 33-foot (10 m) wide moat, which was probably dug in the 13th or 14th C. to enclose an earlier building on the site. There is no evidence that the moat served any defensive purpose, and as with many other moat…

  • Little Moreton Hall, Cheshire

    Much of the original 16th-century glazing has survived and shows the colour variations typical of old glass. Old scratched graffiti is visible in places. (I didn't spot any.)
