That got your attention didn’t it! Not that sort of naughty though, but putting the fun into architecture, the wicked into observations.
Hence – naughty guides… from Tudor trunks to Norman nobbly bits…
Alas, the only bottoms you’ll be seeing are church apses – though I have had to mention a few actual body parts in the text sometimes to avoid falling foul trade description act.
I’ve put up my series A Day Out with Elspeth in… [insert name of usually British town here]. Some of my posts are more observations than tours. I always intend to share what it feels to be here, not just list the usual pictures and places. I’ll assume you want to know what’s it’s actually like, not just a repeat of the obvious sights and most famous hotels and teashops. Browsing shops and websites, I got frustrated with how hard it is to go beyond that, especially if you’re planning on moving, or just really want to know a place.
I began writing on travel in 2002 and started this series, originally for the Churches Conservation Trust, in 2008. It’s now separate and has become its own thing, but I wanted to give a little plug for CCT (not the camera sort).
Pictures are mine – please don’t use them or my text without permission. (I don’t count printing off for your delectation or scrapbook). Hence I often have marks on them to make them less nickable and I don’t always put my best pictures up here – I often sell those, somewhere else.
