Built on the orders of William I (the Conquerer) to subjugate the once Viking city of Jorvik, York Castle has had a turbulent history over the centuries, including a massacre of 150 Jews in a pogrom. Clifford’s Tower is the only remaining portion of the castle as it was torn down to create a prison. By the way, that’s me on the steps. What a handsome fellow.
Though consecrated in the 17th century, Trinity College Chapel in Oxford has celebrated over 600 years of religious history as it used to be part of the earlier Durham College.
Though there has been a priory on Holy Island since the early 7th century, the Lindisfarne priory is best known for the man named St. Cuthbert who died in the 9th century. Buried in the priory, his remains were moved years after death. The priory is also the site of the creation of the famed and beautiful Lindisfarn gospels.
High up above the medieval town of Stirling, Scotland, the graveyard has a clear view across the valley that must not be missed. A word to the wise; though you may be looking for the castle, never become so focused on the destination you miss the sights seen getting there.
Founded in the 13th century, Lacock was a wool producing town which celebrated its boom into the 14th century, but as the river dried up, the town fell into a bust cycle. Pictured above is the hunting lodge of King John.
Hello everybody. First of all, some thanks are in order. Your help and views on all my posts have absolutely astounded me. It was only a couple of months ago that I created Traveling with Krushworth and I have never looked back. To me, a blog is not a blog until people start liking the posts and the time I’ve poured into each and every page. Indeed, in my view, this has become one of my most special hobbies and for this I thank you.
With some help from a friend, I have remodeled the blog and hopefully made it that much easier to search for posts from each country I have visited. First of all, the menu bar at the very top of the page is easier and now boasts drop downs in many cases.
In addition, photo of the day (Cambodia and Great Britain) is now that much simpler to find as it is now on the home page or at the top of each page in the menu bar as well. I’m not sure if people know this, but I created my own YouTube travel show called Traveling with Krushworth as well. Just another way to draw newcomers into my world of travel blogging.
Please enjoy the newly improved menu bar and I will keep appreciating all the views and those people who have taken the time to subscribe to my blog. Seeing your gravatar images keep popping up on my WordPress dashboard has become something special. Thank you.
One of the most recognizable London landmarks, London Bridge is a must see. However, for some of the best views of the bridge, walk under it and wait for the light to hit it just right. Many of the tourists just take a picture as soon as you see it, but do some walking about for a picture you’ll remember.
Having climbed to the very top of St. Paul’s Cathedral, the view across London is incredible. Though not boasting a typical skyline, it’s fantastic to spot some of the historical sights across the city.
