061115.127.Wiltshire.Salisbury

Just got back from Stonehenge and and a lecture given by the architect in charge of Salisbury Cathedral (tallest Crossing Tower of British Cathedrals) at Sarum College in Salisbury. Nothing to report yet.

Seems almost inhuman to go from the sunny Ionic column posts back to the medieval Overcast Kingdom.

I should add that from this angle and distance, the tallest spire in Britain and accompanying cathedral looks porportionately very similiar to a small New England village church and steeple.

  1. A bucolic scene. Now I’m wondering, are you a fisherman?

  2. Hey, James. I used to regularly visit a friend who lived in Andover. I spent many a day exploring Salisbury. Those days were some of the best travels I have had. I did the usual tourist stuff too, like Stone Henge, Avebury, Silbury, Oxford, Hungerford, etc. etc. etc. Mostly it was visiting small villages and sampling a local half of bitter. I really have to come back. Cheers. rb
