I took a jaunt over to Lincoln last Saturday, mainly to see the cathedral and castle, including a climb up the central tower of the cathedral. Photos after the jump!
I visited York today for Good Friday and some photography practice. Here are the results!
I recently visited Wollaton Hall again with a friend who was in town. This gallery includes pictures that I took during this most recent trip. Continue reading Wollaton Hall Photos
Rachael came to visit from London this week, and we did some sightseeing in Nottingham. It was great fun to see the Castle and eat at The Old Trip to Jerusalem—things I’d been wanting to do for a long time but haven’t gotten around to yet—as well as to walk around looking like tourists, taking pictures of everything we came across.

One of the primary reasons I decided to come to England for my PhD was so that I could live in the country where the people I study lived. As a student of Anglo-Saxon language and literature, I’m thrilled anytime I can find a remnant of that society still in this country, as are my fellow students and our supervising faculty members. Last summer (around July 2015), some of them got together to plan a trip around Derbyshire to look at Anglo-Saxon artifacts still extant. Other than manuscripts (which you don’t normally find by the side of the road), these mainly consist of stone carvings and are often preserved in or near churches. This gallery, then, is a collection of photos I took during that trip—though not all of them are of specifically Anglo-Saxon items.

Alton Towers theme park is built around (and named after) the ruins of the ancient castle Alton Towers. Below are some pictures of the castle from my recent visit to the park (all taken with my iPhone).
I did something rather silly last weekend when I visited Winchester. I took my good camera with me … and then didn’t use it. Continue reading Winchester Photos
I’m terribly late with this post, but I wanted to throw in some pictures from this year’s Bonfire Night before I forget any longer.
