Re: Cont'n of short trip to UK- Stratford-upon-Avon

Henry,

having a pipe organ in the Guild Chapel is not so surprising when you think that the Guild of the Holy Cross (which amalgamated with the guilds of Our Lady and St John Baptist in 1403) was...

Re: Is Nigella real?

Getting back to bookshops, may I put in a plug for The Booksmith? It's in the old Royal Ordnance Depot at Weedon Bec in Northamptonshire not far off the A5 or M1.

Re: Visit to the Shard

Was that the Jools Holland Prom?
Being too mean to pay the Shard's prices, the Tata Tower at Stratford is a lesser alternative, but you need to visit in the morning before the sun is too...

Re: A few from Warwickshire

I don't know about the bells, but there are some interesting and attractive animal carvings on the capitals of the nave arcade. Apart from that, it's a very scenic site!
