The view of the Cheviot Hills from the border of Scotland and England at Carter Bar. I could have sat here for hours and daydreamed. Border revivers went back and forth through here and the Scottish army passed this way to Otterburn. Edwards III himself traveled through here as well during his campaigns against the Scots. So rich in history for a place that is a way from settlements. #medieval #cheviothills #scotland #england #carterbar

A medieval cellar underneath one of the pubs in Canterbury. This cellar is a part of a network of underground rooms and tunnels which honeycomb the old city and go to the cathedral itself. Amazing stuff. #england #canterbury #theshakespere #kent

Did you know that in England in the Middle Ages there were over 1700 castles built? Not all are still standing today of course and most are in various state of ruin. Here is one such castle, in Canterbury. A lot of people are not very aware of it bough in the Middle Ages is was a very important center of county administration and justice. #medieval #canterbury #castle #england #history #middleages #ilovecastles #castles #castlesofinstagram

The view from a ruined window at Hopton Castle. I stumbled across this one quite by accident as I was leaving England to experience Snowdonia for the first time. #medieval #england #wales #shropshire

The VyneHampshire, England

The Vyne
Hampshire, England

Dating back to the early 16th century, The Vyne is a large Tudor mansion once home to William Sandys – Lord Chamberlain for Henry VIII. Henry visited The Vyne a number of times in his life – including in 1535 CE with Anne Boleyn. Eight months later, William Sandys escorted Anne Boleyn to the Tower of London. William himself was a member of the jury that sentenced her to death.
