As always, I NEVER get bored of this site - I like waiting a while until there are lots of updates to pore through, but as always every picture/story/description is fantastic! I only hope that when I retire (which who knows when that will be with current government we have) that I will be as active as you are. Thank you very much BTDT - You are fab!
I see in your list of old churches it states that Durham Cathedral is the oldest being started in 1093. Whereas Winchester was completed in 1093. Which is correct?

The age comparisons are between the buildings as they are in their current form.
Durham Cathedral was built in its current form in one go whereas when Winchester was first completed it was considerably smaller than it is now. It took a few more centuries to reach its current form and so was 'finished' long after Durham.
I was born in Kingston upon Thames and as a kid toured the south counties on my bike. I now live in USA. Oh how I miss beautiful little England. With your photos I can go there anytime. Thanks, Wonderful picts.
Am absolutely loving this website - The pictures are amazing and the write-ups are brilliant and descriptive. So many things to see and do in our great country - time to start planning stuff for my week off in November - starting with close-to-home Salisbury!

What terrific pictures- my desktop background just got a whole lot better. Many thanks!!
What a brilliant bit a work, keep it up. Just fell upon it by chance, and admire the section on footpaths and things, as these are now in a disrespectful state. I love to walk for miles, but so often the paths are so hard to trace.
