Southwell Minster

 Entrance to Southwell Minster (click here). A day out to Southwell to see some Art shops, one of which is where I got my coloured waistcoat from - alas - the shop was there but the lady who made the waistcoats isnt making any more.
 A warm and sunny day a midst the cooler time that we were having.
 Notice the grave stones here ---
Well lets have a closer look - shall we

 Notice how the moss is growing and covering the words and letters on the Head Stones.

 In the grounds is the remains of the Castle

Well - I hope you enjoyed your quick tour of the grounds of Southwell Minster (dont forget to check out the info of the Minster HERE.
Dont worry there's more to see from Southwell - so pop back soon to see.

Love the moss on the letters! Nice pics. Remember once playing in the university orchestra there!

Nice shots of the old buildings! The ancient buildings have charm. Would you say the grave stones are covered with literary moss?

These are wonderful pictures of Southwell Minster. Your first photo is a real work of art. I hope you will be able to find someone else to make waistcoats for you.

Beautiful day, beautiful place! I love the moss lettering. :-)

That moss growing in the letters of a name is really remarkable. That minster is remarkable. The lines are so clean and erect--every one of them. So much order! Thanks for the tour.

We've been to Southwell and had a great time at the Minster and looking around the shops. Gail of course bought a handbag. Not new fortunately, but from a 'vintage' shop, which I think is a posh word for second hand!
