After strolling the grounds of Plympton Priory…

After strolling the grounds of Plympton Priory, we ventured into the church and got to see a lot of things most folk don’t ever get to see. I was treated like a VIP and it’s humbling to think that some people are honoured or excited to meet me. I’m just a plain old guy, playing dress ups and taking an obsession with the Middle Ages too far. It really blows my mind when I think of all the things I’ve done and wonderful people I’ve met. It’s overwhelming at times and I’m extremely grateful for all of it. #medieval #blessed #thankyoulord #friends #travel #europe #world #middleages #history

A couple of years ago, spending time with my good friend riding around the Bohemian countryside and startling the village folk. Can’t wait to get back there and do it again. #medieval #czechrepublic #nobility #14thcentury #horse #horses #riding #bohemia #ceskalipa #českálípa #europe

Exploring a Bohemian castle way up on a hilltop in a forest a couple of years ago. It was quite an experience feeling as though we were a world away from modern civilization. #medieval #castle #bohemia #czechrepublic #europe #holyromanempire

Afterwards, Wolvesey Castle continued to be used as a residence for the powerful Bishops of Winchester – until it was finally destroyed during the English Civil War (1642-1651).
