Castle Roof   22 comments

While up at Cholmondeley Castle earlier this year and exploring the castle I found my way to the roof, I couldn’t resist checking it out and grabbing a few shots.

Even way up here the attention to detail is amazing.



A row of chimneys gives you an idea how they kept the castle warm though out the winter months, before central heating.



A closer look reveals each chimney is numbered so as to aid in diagnostics if one or more become blocked.



Have a great weekend.

Cholmondeley   22 comments

A few more shots from Cholmondeley Castle, this was one of my favourite shots, the Castle with the cricket game going on in the foreground, the day before this we sat in the cricket grounds and watched them play while we had a few cold ones, very nice it was.


How can I do a post on the castle without a door.


And a little bit of the garden.


No post tomorrow as I will be traveling home, Whoa Whoa, 21 days on this FPSO is long enough.

The Gardens   20 comments

Quick post today showing the gardens around Cholmondeley Castle, we were lucky enough to able to walk around them while they weren’t open to the public, it’s getting close to the end of summer so the gardens are not at their best, but still very nice.
My first attempt at this type of shot.


A Folly.

I was going to wait until I was home to post more about Cholmondeley but you guys are just to persuasive, so here it is.
These stones are either side of the main door.



Was it worth the wait?

Some iPhone shots from our visit to Cheshire.

This is Chester Cathedral it is the mother church of the Church of England Diocese of Chester, and is located in Chester city centre, Cheshire, England. The cathedral, formerly St Werburgh’s abbey church of a Benedictine monastery, is dedicated to Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary. Since 1541 it has been the seat of the Bishop of Chester and centre of worship, administration, ceremony and music for the city and diocese.

The cathedral is a Grade I listed building, and part of a heritage site that also includes the former monastic buildings to the North, also listed Grade I. The cathedral, typical of English cathedrals in having been modified many times, dates from between 1093 and the early 16th century, although the site itself may have been used for Christian worship since Roman times. All the major styles of English medieval architecture, from Norman to Perpendicular, are represented in the present building.

This is a Milestone we found outside an old pub in Tarporley we had lunch in.

A milestone is one of a series of numbered markers placed along a road or boundary at intervals of one mile or occasionally, parts of a mile. They are typically located at the side of the road or in a median. They are alternatively known as mile markers, mileposts or mile posts (sometimes abbreviated MPs).

See the town of Nantwich on the MP below, the ‘wich’ at the end of the name means salt, so places ending in wich had salt, either stored, for sale or just there.

Another cool sign in Tarporley.

Last one is a huge sculpture in the grounds of an Adventure Trail the boy’s, Archie and I spent a couple of hours getting muddy on.
