Well I'm on holiday, I have loads of photos but alas my mobile broadband is not quite good enough to uploads photos.
I've been to Salisbury and its MAGNFICENT Cathedral. Look around Old Wardour Castle and then headed to Stourhead admired its magnificent garden, oh and ate a nice piece of chocolate cake. And I also ticked my target church.
Whilst browsing today I came across a set of small paperbacks by Penguin the series was called English Journeys and they are priced at £4.99.
Each books is about 100 pages and takes as its theme an element the English Countryside. The books are an excerpt from a larger book. Engish Country Churches is an extract of the top 100 churches from Simon Jenkins book (yes that one!) excluding those top 100 churches that were in cities. There is a book of James Lees-Milne's travel around English Country Houses in the 40's as he tried to persuade owners to give there properties to the National Trust. Henry James on Cathedral's and Castles. Gertrude Jekyll on cottage gardens and poetry by Wordsworth and Gray and some diaries of Wiltshire by Kilvert. Its an eclectic mix and I may pick up one or two.
And never fear OC the photos will appear Wednesday.
