So, there we are, the basic history ... now you can see a few images of a very enjoyable time
The river was diverted to go round the walls like a moat. They are famous for having swans that will ring a bell when they want to be fed. We didn't have time to walk round the outside route, so didn't see them.
The house on the left, with the raining wall of the great hall on the right.
... and inside
Inside the private Chapel ... this picture is one of 5 that are behind the Alter, this one depicting creation
Love the colours from the stained glass on the other wall
As well as the gardens, there are the city allotments
Some of the statues in the grounds - this depicts the struggle of children ... refugees, starvation, ill-treatment, etc
The Cathedral, reflected in one of the original wells, that gives the city it's name.
They have a kids games area in the grounds, based on the legend of a local dragon
So, now you have seen a few of the photos I took on my day out with Christine. Well worth the drive.
