Gwydir Castle is situated in the Conwy valley, Wales, a mile to the west of the ancient market town of Llanrwst and 1.5 miles to the south of the large village of Trefriw.

 

has been a fortification of some sort on the site since AD 600, and in the Middle Ages a large number of skirmishes were fought in this area between the various rival Welsh princes and their forces, the most significant being in 610 and 954.

 

By the 14th century some form of manorial house had evolved, and the first recorded owner was Howell ap Coetmor, who fought in the Hundred Years' War and was a commander of longbowmen under Edward, the Black Prince at the Battle of Poitiers in 1356.

 

Gwydir became the ancestral home of the powerful Wynn family, descended from the Kings of Gwynedd, and one of the most significant families of north Wales during the Tudor and Stuart periods.

 

Following the Wars of the Roses the castle was rebuilt by Meredith ap Ieuan ap Robert, the founder of the Wynn dynasty. The house incorporated re-used mediaeval material from the dissolved Abbey of Maenan. The square turret at the rear of the Solar Tower contains a spiral staircase taken from the Abbey and many elaborately carved stones can also be seen. The turret was added around 1540 and Sir John Wynn's initials can be seen above the main entrance in the courtyard gatehouse along with the date of 1555. The surviving buildings date from around the year 1500, and there were alterations and additions in c1540, c1600 and c1828, the latter after Lord Willoughby had done a fair bit of demolishing in c1819.

 

Although called a castle, it is an example of a Tudor architecture courtyard house or fortified manor house, rather than a traditional castle, such as those built in North Wales by Llywelyn the Great and Edward I.

 

Gwydir was home to Katheryn of Berain. King Charles is said to have visited Gwydir in 1645 as the guest of Sir Richard Wynn, 2nd Baronet, Treasurer to Queen Henrietta Maria, and Groom of the Royal Bed Chamber.

 

More recently King George V and Queen Mary stayed here as the Duke and Duchess of York, in April 1899.

The remains of Kendal Castle, in Kendal, Cumbria

 

The castle was probably built in the late 12th century as the home of the Lancaster family who were Barons of Kendal. The best-known family associated with the castle was the Parr family; including Queen Catherine Parr, the sixth wife of King Henry VIII of England. Her family had lived at Kendal since her ancestor Sir William Parr married the heiress of Kendal, Elizabeth Ros, during the reign of Edward III of England. By the time Catherine Parr was born, the family had long deserted the castle which was already falling into disrepair. Catherine's father preferred to live in the centre of court in London. Sir Thomas's father seems to be the last of the Parrs to have lived at Kendal Castle.

 

The building has been a ruin since Tudor times but imposing stonework remains are still present. The two remaining significant ruins of Kendal Castle. In the foreground is part of the walls of the old manor hall, while the only surviving tower of the castle is visible rear left. The site is freely accessible to the public. It is managed by the South Lakeland District Council.

 

Views of Knysna Lagoon from The Knysna Belle, Leisure Island, Knysna

 

It is named after a schooner, which regularly visited Knysna in the late 1800’s and all bedrooms are named after sailing ships with a history of visiting Knysna. This spectacular Cape-Cod style guest house carries nautical themes throughout.

 

The property was a private property owned by a family in Johannesburg, but was run as a B&B when they were absent. They had employed a couple of ‘managers’ and also a cook and cleaning staff, who were all very friendly.

 

Guests had the use of a stunning sitting room with views over the lagoon and a swimming pool in the rear garden.

 

We had booked a room call ‘The Emu” which was a lagoon facing suite with spectacular views. The room was at the front of the property on the raised first floor. The room was large, with a queen-size bed with shower en-suite, air-conditioner and double doors opening onto the private patio where we could enjoy the changing view of the lagoon.

The guest house was located on the shore of Leisure Isle which is a island in the centre of Knysna Lagoon and connected by a causeway. The island was easy to either walk or cycle around, and there was a small reserve to one end with some excellent birdwatching, there picnic area on the left as you get onto the island also provided some good birdwatching.

 

There were a couple of coffee shops on the island, but otherwise you needed to cross the causeway and either try the couple of cafes/restaurant at The Heads or into Knysa Town, which was a short 10 minute car journey away.

he Frontenac County Court House in Kingston, Ontario, Canada is the Courthouse for Frontenac County, Ontario. The Neoclassical building was designed by Edward Horsey and constructed by builders Scobell and Tossell.[1] Alternation after 1874 fire by John Power added the dome tower. It overlooks City Park to its south, and Lake Ontario beyond. The front of the structure features the Royal coat of arms of the United Kingdom.

Awesome On Black

 

I had couple hours of free time this evening and the weather was so darn good. Zero cloud, nada! So, I grabbed my camera bag and a tripod and hopped on the subway train to Astoria. It was about 30 degree Fahrenheit outside with moderate wind. Not too bad. So, I wore what I usually wear for this kind of weather - sweater, double jacket, jeans and sneaker. Normally, that’d be just enough. Not today!

 

I forgot to think about the river. It’s usually much colder and windier when you’re by one. Let alone the fact that I was there for almost an hour. I had no gloves, no beanie, no scarf, no board pants (I hate long john). It was fine the first 5-10 minutes… then hell began. My face and hands turned solid within twenty minutes, and I didn’t feel a thing after that. Well, consider what I got out of the evening, it’s still worth it. But next time around, I’d definitely bundle the hell up before I go out doing photography work.

 

Moral of the story: Never underestimate the weather… EVER!!!

In the background is the Eads Bridge, with Metrolink light rail on the lower deck (no over-under this time). Behind the Eads is the MLK road bridge.

 

This is the first time I've seen this unit away from its normal parking spot tucked up alongside the plant, located next to the Casino Queen. 9335 was built as Pennsy 7916, later became Conrail 9335, then ADM, and now Cargill. Although you can't tell it from this view, the large Cargill logo on the engineer's-side long hood has been painted over.

The first visit to Scotland for the Colas 67's was on the 27th March 2017. They worked a Heaton - Newcastle via Glasgow Queen Street test train.

I didn't manage to see the northbound working but I caught them returning to Newcastle. Here in beautiful afternoon sunshine, 67027 approaches Musselburgh with 1Q24 at 1521, with 67023 on the rear.

Possibly the most famous road in Bath, Royal Crescent is a row of 30 terraced houses laid out in a sweeping crescent. Designed by the architect John Wood the Younger and built between 1767 and 1774, it is among the greatest examples of Georgian architecture to be found in the United Kingdom. The buildings are all Grade I-listed.

 

Interestingly, each original purchaser bought a length of the façade, and then employed their own architect to build a house behind the façade to their own specifications. Hence what can appear to be two houses is occasionally just one. While the front is uniform and symmetrical, the rear is a mixture of differing roof heights, juxtapositions and fenestration. In other words, a bit of a mess. This architecture, described as "Queen Anne fronts and Mary-Anne backs", occurs repeatedly in Bath.

Tell me the legends of long ago

When the kings and queens would dance in the realm of the red rose

Play me the melodies i want to know

So i can teach my children, oh

 

Pray tell me the story of young co chulainn

How his eyes were dark his expression sullen

And how he'd fight and always won

And how they cried when he was fallen

 

Oh tell me the story of the queen of this land

And how her sons died at her own hand

And how fools obey commands

Oh tell me the legends of long ago

 

Where the mountains of mourne come down to the sea

Will she no come back to me

Will she no come back to me

 

Oh shenandoah i hear you calling

Far away you rolling river

Roll down the mountain side

On down on down go lassie go

 

Oh tell me the legends of long ago

When the kings and queens would dance in the realms of the red rose

Play me the melodies so i might know

So i can tell my children, oh

 

My roisin dubh is my one and only true love

It was a joy that joyce brought to me

While william butler waits

And oscar, he's going wilde

 

Ah sure, brendan where have you behan?

Looking for a girl with green eyes

My dark rosaleen is my only colleen

That georgie knows best

 

But van is the man

Starvation once again

Drinking whiskey in the jar-o

Synge's playboy of the western world

 

As shaw, sean i was born and reared there

Where the mountains of mourne come down to the sea

Is such a long, long way from tipperary
