This will be the last post for a while, as I'm off to Yorkshire on holiday, visiting lots of historical sites. Can't wait! The next post will be on or around 8 October, and I'll be posting pics (at least, I certainly hope so) of the following:
Sheriff Hutton Castle
And possibly a few more places, depending on how much time we have (and depending on the not terribly reliable Yorkshire weather!)
It probably didn't escape your notice that two days ago, 21 September, marked the 681st anniversary of Edward II's supposed murder at Berkeley Castle. Whenever, wherever and however he really died, it seemed as good a time as any for me to raise a glass in memory of the ineffectual, unpredictable and exasperating man I can't help being devoted to. RIP, Edward!
