Incredibly fortunate to have a private viewing of Richard III’s Book of Hours with some of the Surrey Group of the Richard III Society. Unfortunately no photos of the illuminated pages were permitted but it was wonderful to see it close up, no touching allowed, particularly the additions in his own hand. It dates from about 1420 and at some point after his death in 1485 has been rebound after being cut down in size, presumably to fit on somebody’s book shelf!

This chamber holds one of the best preserved copies of the Magna Carta, which still forms an important symbol of our liberty and freedoms today, what an awe inspiring place to house it..

Shad Thames
.
I had a wander around the Shad Thames area of London near Tower Bridge a few weeks back.

This was the largest warehouse complex in London during the Victorian era and these overhead gantries connected the warehouses. Known as the larder of London as they stored tea, coffee, dried fruit and spice.

Hardwick Old Hall, one time home of Bess of Hardwick, she lived here while building the stunningly beautiful Hardwick Hall nearby.

Deep in Savernake Forest stands the Ailesbury Column, which was erected in 1781. The inscription on its base reads: "This Column was erected By Thomas Bruce Earl of Ailesbury As a Testimony Of Gratitude To his ever honoured Uncle, Charles Earl of Ailesbury and Elgin, who left to him these Estates And procured for him the Barony of Tottenham, And of Loyalty to his most Gracious Sovereign GEORGE III Who unsolicited conferred upon him The honour of an Earldom; but above all of Piety To GOD, FIRST, HIGHEST, BEST, whose blessing consecrateth every gift And fixeth its true Value."

Site of the birthplace of modern democracy, these meadows were the location where King John signed the Magna Carta in 1215. The history behind the drafting of this Great Charter is too lengthy to reproduce here, suffice to say that one of my heroes William Marshal, first Earl of Pembroke is at the centre of it. He had an extraordinary life rising from a landless tourney knight to protector of John’s son Henry and regent for him as Henry III upon the death of his father. He is interred at Temple Church, London having taken Templar vows on his deathbed. His descendents include Robert the Bruce, the Stewarts and through his granddaughter Maud de Braose who married Roger Mortimer, Kings Edward IV and Richard III. He was married to Isabel de Clare an heiress, promised to him by Henry II and given to him by Richard I for his illustrious service to the Crown. #igerssurrey_runnymede #igerssurrey #igersworldinstameet #magnacarta #explore_britain #historic #memorial #capturingbritain_history #fiftyshades_of_history #bestukpics #loves_united_kingdom #gloriousbritain #visitsurrey #mybritain #efe_snapshots_daily #ig_shotz #igersworldinstameet_surrey #igersuk #ukpotd

The Jurors by Hew Locke. 12 bronze chairs embossed with symbols and images depicting the fight for freedom, the rule of law and equal rights form this artwork to commemorate the signing of the Magna Carta at Runnymede in 1215.

One of a pair of handsome houses opposite the Manor which at first glance I thought could have been new builds, they look so bright. Again, thanks to good old Pevsner I see that they were the stable ranges "set at a distance in front of the façade and framing a vista". He says they look more like lodges than stables and they certainly do! #greatlinford #buckinghamshire #house #architecture #georgianarchitecture #architecturelovers #history #capturingbritain_history #mybritain #photosofengland #bestunitedkingdom #total_uk #visualsofengland #explore_history #uk_potd #uk_pho

Great Linford Manor. I've had a trip to Great Linford this morning as very fortuitously my mother lives just a couple of miles away from there so we had an outing in the sunshine. I've been meaning to visit for a while as I've done a bit of family history research for Delapré Abbey and two of the Bouverie daughters from there married brothers from Great Linford Manor. They had the very unusual surname of Uthwatt so not too hard to find them! Pevsner describes the Manor as "a very dignified Early Georgian stone house". Certainly very impressive! #greatlinfordmanor #greatlinford #buckinghamshire #historichouse #manorhouse #history #architecture #architecturelovers #capturingbritain_history #explore_history #bestunitedkingdom #mybritain #photosofengland #total_uk #visualsofengland #uk_potd #uk_pho

Opposite the church in Somersby is Somersby Grange. Built in 1722 and attributed to Sir John Vanbrugh (thank you Pevsner again!)

Tyneside Cinema was built in 1937 and is the only purpose-built newsreel theatre still operating as a cinema in the UK. The Art Deco splendour,  4 screens and on site eating and drinking make it a great place to visit right in the heart of Newcastle.

We went to Anne of Cleves House today.
She wasn’t in! 💁🏼‍♀️
▪️
Anne of Cleves, was Henry the 8th’s, 4th wife. Henry didn’t like her on sight. In fact he said: “I like her not.” -charming! 
Anne, agreed to an annulment of their marriage, a clever move, that quite possibly spared her life. It saw her get a nice settlement, with a generous allowance and property which included this house. It also meant that she could go back to court as a welcomed friend of the King. Xxx
