I did a nice photo blog from our day in Chichester last week, which caused my phone to blow a 3G (mobile data) gasket when I tried to upload it. Should have waited until I was home with wi-fi. Now my Blogpress app refuses to show me any saved entries, so the post has disappeared without trace. Reproducing it would be too demoralising, so I am just going to post a batch of random pictures from our trip away.
Cherub enjoying the autumn leaves
Chichester Guildhall - originally a priory church, which became the town hall (Guildhall) after the dissolution of the monasteries in the 16th century. Now a museum.
The world's largest liturgical book in Chichester cathedral. Nobody knows exactly where it came from or when it was made - 17th century Mexico / Latin America seems to be the most likely origin. The size was so that the book could be seen simultaneously by a number of people.
The ceiling of Chichester cathedral. I have a thing for Gothic ceilings.
The Isle of Wight has a small railway line that runs from the ferry landing at Ryde Pier Head to Shanklin in the south-east. The trains are cast offs from the London Underground.
Shanklin Old Village. Very pretty, even on a grey autumn day.
Shanklin beach - grey sea and grey sky!
Another Gothic roof, this time at Winchester Cathedral. Beautiful fan vaulting.
A medieval wooden carving on the end of one of the choir stalls at Winchester.
