...to Chester (for the 9 millionth time) I did try to photograph things that  are not commonly shot.

Nice architecture in Chester.


Still in use.

Yes it is. I went back there on tuesday (it was my birthday Very Happy ) and had a really lovely day. It's a lovely city and I really enjoy taking photos. I remembered my camera this time, but the photos need to be re-sized, I hate that bit, so boring.

Chester, 11/03/17
The Anchorite Cell.

The structure was built in the middle of the 14th century as a religious retreat for a monk or a hermit. It belonged to the nearby St John the Baptist's Church until the Reformation. During the 19th century the building was restored and converted into a house. In 1897 the porch of St Martin's Church, which was being demolished, was moved here and made into a north entrance. The building was refurbished in about 1970 as a cottage










I love it, it's opposite an entrance of Grosvenor Park, where the squirrels run free and come over to you if you have their favourite nuts. When I win the lotto, going to buy this... Razz

I walk a lot, for fitness and chester is a brilliant place to do it. doesnt cost me anymore to get there than I spend on my weekly ticket to work and back. Takes longer than the train but its a nice journey and if I'm lucky enough to catch the X8 then that is the limited stop bus and gets you there in less than an hour; once again using my weekly ticket that i buy anyway.

Chester again today. No camera and very little battery left on my phone (because I forgot to charge it  Rolling Eyes  ) So only could take this pic today. It's in the grounds of the cathedral. The flowers were beautiful and the pic doesnt do them justice.
