tudor times & chester

our travels took us further into the beautiful old city such detail, everywhere

black & white & beautifully tudor

and further still, around the ancient city walls our feet were aching at the end of the day
but our imagination was stirred
the city of chester

  14. Hi Ruthie, you must let me know where your daughter's exhibition is...or her name! I can look ut for it. :)x

  15. thanks for all those lovely comments and i think i shall stay with the new header!

  16. The Rows are wonderful aren't they? There is so much history in Chester, usually I rush straight to the Record Office to do family history research so on my next visit I must plan an extra day just to look round. I was born and grew up in Cheshire but have never walked round the city walls of Chester! Great photos especially the lion/griffin?

  17. I love your travel-photo posts! Makes me feel like I'm having a bit of a vicarious trip myself. Such beautiful views...
