As this and the last block is all about East Anglia here is a map with some referenced cities
Today’s blog will be about Bury St. Edmunds and Ely (pronounced Eleeeee ). After a quite rough night in the Angel Hotel (ouch… 83 pounds for an old non-renovated room…)
I took the fresh morning air (ok, it was freezing cold and grey ) for a walk through the cathedral’s gardens. The entrance is rather imposing
I wasn’t entirely sure but it looks like if they had converted an older building
A very strange feeling to walk through a graveyard in the middle of a city as a common thoroughfare
But why not – in those times the cathedral was the central point and loads of space available…
It’s very beautiful inside
Whom are they going to impress?
great glass windows, too!
The local market was quite interesting and everything is sold. From bread to cheese to dogs biscuit
For warming up I found a rather very English restaurant…
Driving onwards to Ely to collect Ursula again, I strolled through the cathedral park there and admired the old buildings
massive, strong, impressive and drafts in equal measure
my home is my castle…
The cathedral in the back is one of the oddest ones I have ever seen. Extremely long and loads of side constructions. Like if every bishop / king wanted to add his / her special part to it…
Finally in the end we drove back towards Birmingham to catch the plain next day (after having a sumptuous Dim Sum Lunch in Leicester ) back home…
