    1. Ah, got it I think. St Alkmund Square – the private house in the corner. Of course I didn’t go so close up to it to capture the detail πŸ˜€

  2. Your black background shows up every speck, splash, and smear on my monitor screen! I just spent ages trying to clean it, using a lens-cleaning cloth. Now it’s all smeary! Grrr… Any ideas what is best to use for cleaning monitor screens?
    Nice shots, by the way. πŸ™‚
    Best wishes, Pete.

        1. Pete I can’t find my brand of screen cleaner on sale anywhere (I’ve had it a few years! πŸ™‚ but there are equivalents on amazon, so long as it says TFT/LCD screen cleaner on it you’ll get the right thing.

  4. Hey fragg.. great! I liked all your photos. However, the steps. The steps really set the age of that place. Perfectly. Not many would have thought to point their camera at that location.

  6. They knew how to make houses that stand out back in the 14th and 16th centuries. It’s mind bugling to think about how old these house are. And still beautiful and so well kept. Gorgeous photos as always.

  9. I’m glad to hear there is more to come, Fraggle. I can’t help being amazed by the idea of so many buildings that are that old, in one place. And still standing. It must have the most extraordinary “vibe.” I loved your photo of the Bear Stairs too.
    Hugs on the wing.
