I love this photo because it reminds me of the good times I had later that day. My lodgings was a 14thC Inn that was turned into a well to do farm house in the 15th and then off I trotted to Windsor Castle, just 5 minutes away. Bliss. These are things I live for! #medieval #castle #windsor #unitedkingdom #england #britain #berkshire #kingsandqueens #history #14thcentury

A trip to Clun is not complete without calling into the White Horse Inn to try their cask ales, brewed on the premises. #medieval #clun #realale #freehouse #whitehorseinn #shropshire #country #england

A neat little display at the museum in Ypres Tower, a remnant of the castle that once stood there. Well worth a visit. #medieval #rye #eastsussex #sussex #england #tower #castle #middleages #herbs #herbalist
