Rear view of 21, the Mint. A wonderful example of architectural history with early Norman stonework and medieval 14th century roofing which has survived many reincarnations from Tudor des-res to fine Georgian townhouse and art school. I once visited and experienced a 1000 years of history.

Taken in 2010, it was a rainy day similar to today. Llanthony Priory was an excellent find during one of my road trips of the UK. I can’t believe it was free of anyone else. And now I’m going to be moving 30 miles away from it and the Brecon Beacons itself - I can’t wait. #heritage #priory #deserted #old #architecture #history #breconbeacons #wales #rainday #flashback #roadtrip #discovery #llanthonypriory #medieval #gothicarchitecture #normanarchitecture #12thcentury

Lovely stop off at Hereford Cathedral on the journey home to Cornwall - saw the Mappa Mundi, a circular medieval world map from 1300, drawn on vellum, and the world's largest chained library. I really want a book trunk! 🕍📃📖

Took a trip into an ancient part of Essex @englishheritage 😍 Founded about 1100, St Botolph's was one of the first Augustinian priories in England .

An impressive example of early Norman architecture, built in flint and reused Roman brick, the church displays massive circular pillars, round arches and an elaborate west front.

It was badly damaged by cannon fire during the Civil War siege of 1648.

Ten interior photographs of #DurhamCathedral - built between the late 11th and early 12th century to house the bodies of St. Cuthbert (634-687 AD) (the evangeliser of Northumbria) and the Venerable Bede (672/3-735 AD). It demonstrates the importance of the early Benedictine monastic community and is the largest and finest example of #NormanArchitecture in England. The innovative vaulting foreshadowed #Gothicarchitecture. An impressive barn of a place - the incised pillars are particularly striking. #romanesquearchitecture #normanarchitecture #medievalart

Durham Castle is a Norman castle in the city of Durham. It was originally built in the 11th century as a projection of the Norman kings’ power in the north of England. It remained the bishop’s palace got the bishops of Durham until the bishops made Auckland Castle their primary residence. The castle was converted into a college for the University of Durham in 1840.

Rougement Gardens and Castle Gate in Exeter. The castle was built around 1068 following the rebellion on the City of Exeter against the Norman conquest. It is also the place where the last witches were executed in England. #rougement #castlegate #exeter #exetercastle #park #castle #normancastle #citypark #rebellion #normanconquest #witchtrials #devon #exeterdevon #Gardens #visitexeter #visitdevon #history #heritage #normanarchitecture #kastil #城堡 #قلعة #замок #城 #schloss #Πάρκο
