Beefsteak fungus 'bleeding' on my hand. Found inside an ancient oak tree. It tastes like wood sorrel to me, good raw thinly sliced in a salad.

St John the Baptist Church, Bere Regis, Dorset. The fine Norman font dates from the mid 12th century and later damage to the rim can be seen in the second photo. It was damaged during the 17th century when a cover was fitted, so as to comply with Archbishop William Laud’s edict, that all fonts should have covers. #stjohnthebaptistchurch #bereregis #dorset #churchesofinstagram #ecclesiastical #norman #font #history #dorsethistory

St John the Baptist Church, Bere Regis, Dorset. The earliest surviving parts of the present church date to the mid 11th century, although it is believed that there was an earlier Saxon church on the site. #stjohnthebaptistchurch #bereregis #dorset #churchesofinstagram #ecclesiastical #architecture #eleventhcentury #norman #history #dorsethistory

Seacombe quarry and caves
Part of my hiking has really brought me in touch with other things, the history, people and also the things not instantly visible straight away. Like the caves and discussed quarries along the way. It's hard to imagine the working conditions, and dangers. Check through these photos and video, does the underground appeal to you, last time a deer ran out which completely surprised me, no surprises yesterday, but like all dark places a little bit of blue shone through #cave #quarry #hiking #seacombe #seacombequarry #jurassiccoast #jurassic #southwestcoastalpath #landscape #scenic #scenery #landscapecaptures #abandonedplaces #abandoned #dorsetcoast #dorsetlife #ukcoastline #dark #dorset #geology #rockformation #rocks #landscapephotography #capturebritain #history #dorsethistory

St George’s Almshouses, Old Town Poole, Dorset. Originally built during the early 15th century and believed to have been lodgings for four priests, saying masses at the old Church of St James. In 1550, it was purchased by St George’s Guild and became almshouses in 1586. It is still used as retirement properties to this day. When it was restored in 1904, a timber framed projecting upper storey was removed. #stgeorgesalmshouses #poole #oldtown #dorset #stgeorgesguild #buildingsofinstagram #medieval #architecture #history #dorsethistory
