History in the making :Hero or villain ?

There are times when a reputation will stick whether its warranted or not such in the case of King Richard.
Was he a hero or was he a villain?
Who knows?

Wandering old Leicester takes me back to my architectural inspection days my eye is always trained for seventeenth brickwork or a sash window after 1850. If my family lose me I am usually to be found by diaper brickwork or a cruck A frame . If we are in a church well that's it I have to hold myself back from giving a full health inspection ...

  13. Old buildings have so much character don't they? Their walls talk stories, I'd love to sit and listen to them all.
    the table tennis table made me smile - looks quite out of place doesn't it?

  16. We are so lucky to have some historical houses near by that we can walk to. The kids have always loved wandering around and last time we went to one, Eva was delighted to find a dead squirrel! She is very into history and its so nice to have these places on your doorstep.
