Salisbury with Richard and Sue

I am forever grateful for good friends and was lucky enough to spend another few days with Rich and Sue. We were lucky that whilst the temperature was cool we managed to go and see Salisbury Cathedral. Earlier in my trip I as at Bury where the knights and nobility of the day agreed that they should enforce the Magna Carta on King John which eventually was ratified at Runnymede (next time to visit).

The Cathedral  is an amazing building, built on gravel foundations it is apt to flood occasionally however as it is built also with seven rivers flowing under it need to be wet to survive. The tower and spire is the tallest in Great Britain and is purportedly the tallest in Europe. Well worth the visit and so was the New Inn. As an interesting aside, the original font from the Cathedral is now in South Australia.
