Yes, a great day to Bath.  I had been about 10 years ago when I was collecting my certificate from The Royal Photographic Society .... but again, had little time to see much then.  And, here is the proof we both went -

I don't know if I will get used to seeing me in glasses, after 36 years ... at present wearing lenses hurts -

Bath Abbey is beautiful ... and when I went last time Mum & Dad asked what I thought about "Jacob's ladder" ... I didn't notice it ... this time I did!

I plan to go to Bath for a visit once I retire - I've always wanted to go, but never have.

What an beautiful abbey. Although I rather think they are wrong about Edgar - I was taught Aethelstan was the first king of all the English - and when I saw Michael Woods series of King Alfred and the Anglo-Saxons he said the same thing!

It is a great city, what I saw through the rain. I shall go again!

I didn't do much early history .... just Alfred burning the cakes, and setting up his 3 X 8hours sections of a day .... then we jumped to King Harold in 1066

Very nice photos; however, angel statues creep me out!

LOL - those Angels are famous .... and are stationary as so many people are looking at them all the time!

Don't blink !!!
