Ysbyty Ifan

The small village of Ysbyty Ifan can be found in the Snowdonia National Park, in north Wales. It’s a historic village, dating back to at least the 12th century. It has a predominantly Welsh speaking population of little more than 200 people, an ancient church, a water mill complete with water wheel, and an old bridge over the Conwy river.

Bremen Cathedral

Just before Christmas I spent a couple of days in Bremen, in northern Germany. Here are a couple of images from inside the Cathedral.

As this is my final post for 2013, can I take this opportunity to thank you for following my work, and to wish you all a very happy and prosperous 2014.

St John’s Episcopal Church, Edinburgh

This church can be found at the western end of Princes Street Gardens, in downtown Edinburgh. Built in the early 19th century, it is a category A listed building. The decorative plaster ceiling takes its inspiration from the Henry VII Chapel at Westminster Abbey in London.
