Continuing from the previous post, here are three more shots from that day trip. Some of the oldest buildings in the town, and a view from the bridge along the quay, which now serves as a car park.
St Peter’s Street, with its lovingly-preserved mixture of houses, from Tudor to Georgian.
St Peter’s Church, in the heart of the town. It dates from the 13th century, and has a famous crypt, once used as a charnel house and ossuary. There is also the distinctive metal cupola below the spire. It is hard to see from this angle, but if you enlarge the photo, it is visible. I wanted to go inside, but a large tour group had just arrived, for a pre-arranged visit.
Standing on the new bridge that replaced the ancient toll bridge, this was shot looking east along the river, toward the sea.
In the next and last of this series, I will show some photos of more modern buildings in the town.
