High days and holidays

Today was high days and holidays I climbed up Derby Cathedral tower and took a lot of pictures , far too many to exhibit in one post so I am going to have to do them over a number of posts. Its amazing how many pictures you can take when you are out and about. SO here is a selection of photos somewhat out of sequence nothing can beat the quintessential English cup of tea served in fine bone china, and what tea without a piece of cake in this cake Bakewell Tart.

As I previously mentioned I climbed the tower at Derby Cathedral some 189 steps on the journey up we saw the room where the bell ringers meet under the spider of bell ropes.

Derby Cathedral tower.

At this point I was sitting down as vertigo took over, usually i am fine with heights but my legs just started to wobble and I couldn't look up!

  5. Tea and cake! How splendid.

  6. it is amazing how many pictures you can take on a day out. love the posh plate. for me going up is not the issue it is coming down that I cannot cope with.

  7. Tea and cake with bone china - lovely. Well done for climbing all those steps, no wonder you felt a bit wobbly after.

  8. You can't beat tea in a china cup. The bell ropes look like a big chandelier.
