Just wanted to share a few great places and things seen, starting with these granite columns to an insignificant car park minutes away from our hotel, in a street called Northernhay – from the fact that it is on the north side of the city, just outside the walls, where I guess meadows used to exist.
And you should walk up Steepcote Hill, the excellent Fat Pig pub is at the top, so its well worthwhile.
The old Priory, marketed as the Old Tudor House, has great interiors – here is the master bedroom – hell to keep warm I guess.
In the city museum – at the top of Northernhay – you can see a lot of Sgraffito ware. Some is by a man still alive and making it, but he is very old now. This is one of his, and I like his imagination.
In the same area are these two French jugs dating from between 1280 and 1330, but looking like Picasso could have decorated them.
Moving down the estuary we visited the National Trust property A la Ronde. Great place of charm and quirkiness.
Here are some floorboards from an upstairs room – a real jigsaw.
