York explored

My first visit to York in 20 years! A Richard lll talk at Easingwold School lured me north and I
enjoyed it tremendously… Dr John Ashdown Hill was on the team responsible for the discovery of the long lost Royal bones in a Leicester car park. Yes the last true English king is still lying in a filing cabinet whilst his final resting place is hotly contested in the High Court between place of death in battle (Leicester) and his beloved York. More on this in a future post! JAH has funded a Beautiful Crown for his resting place… It awaits him: the crown is currently in York. Hope this is a sign.

The National Railway Museum is still free to visit and donations are freely given. Why does the sight of the distinctive long nosed blue Mallard make me cry ? Could it be a hankering for steam trains? The Mallard was withdrawn from service when I was but 2 years old so I never saw it in full steam! Perhaps its a general nostalgia… I think it featured on a puzzle in our house when I was growing up.

York Minster is a wondrous piece of architecture but I will never pay £10 to enter a house of prayer… Much rather donate and would probably donate that amount. Just a strong feeling of mine.  Mind you when my hero returns I may have to bite the bullet! Great views from the castle walls (also free!) – see pictures and apologies they are not in a slide show of the pics but am technically challenged and can’t find the right button to do this despite WordPress helpful notes! Rolo was alas excluded from this trip!
