Chimes






The Global Retreate


  I visited a church in the grounds of this place the other week, it used to be Nuneham House home of the Harcourt Family





I took the photos on my way back from the church



But had a walk through some of the grounds on the way to the church
Quite stunning  giant sequoia tree

and equally stunning view towards Oxford





below an ornamental stream




Back past the leaning tree

And this contemplation Temple







I walked past this Mulberry tree that was split down the middle











and noticed it was strapped together using a load strap

Shirburn Church



I do not usually post photos of churches on this blog but  the other day I was visiting a redundant church, when I finished I was walking out the gate and turned around for a final look took out my iPhone and got this photo of the church, the blue sky was a bonus

Around York


Theses were taken many years ago when I went with my wife to York. The photos were taken on 35mm film so have been scanned up. I only took a few photos at the time

The castle which I never had time to visit

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think this is the Shambles 

Amazed the narrowness of the streets still exist 

The Famous Betty's Tea rooms, I never got the chance to visit this place either 

Not sure which gate this is with the steps leading to the wall 

But they look impressive 

And you can see York Minster 

Which is even more impressive.

Clouds over the courtyard



I have been taking photos of the new building being constructed that you see in the photo. Once a week I took the changes till it was at this stage. This paticular day I though the sky should be included for a Skywatch Friday.
 In this photo I am at the top of an externall stairway looking down

On gound level looking up.
Happy Skywatch
