I remember York well Andy. I didn't get to the train museum as planned. We ran out of time. I hope you enjoyed it. 'm sure you did.
We walked all the way round the wall. Well..I hung on to the wall in places because of my vertigo. lol But I made it around to the artists studio underneath Yourk Bridge.
Super photos. It's just as I remembered it. Looking forward to your memoirs again.

Thoroughly enjoyed looking at the enlargements of the photographs when I clicked on them.
I am sorry to see that 'Mad Alice Lane' was renamed with something far less memorable!
I hope that the fine art of York remains a great memory for you.
I still maintain that Chester has better Roman walls!

Guy Fawkes born in York?!! I didn;t know that. My education is sadly lacking.

Well you've whetted my appetite now for visiting York this year! We almost live on the doorstep and we haven't been for years.

York is one of my favourite English cities, even if it's a tad touristy. I can guess which museum you went to!
