WOG MOG LE JOG - DAY 11 HARROGATE AND INTO YORK BEFORE RUTLAND

I know it has been a few days readers, but who knew staying in 18th century hotels in Engerland would compromise my broadband access, eh?

Whatever. I am now on line and in a very tappy mood.

So, to day 11. That day's drive from lovely Harrogate to Rutland, the tiniest district in Engerland, was real driving pleasure with plenty of eye candy along the way, said candy being provided by spectacular York Minster, which was my first stop along the way. It was full up for overnighters on account of York races, hence the stay in lovely Harrogate. But that was quite alright, as Harrogate is a delightful Georgian type town, not too big and not too small.

And not too far away from York, which only one of the biggest durned cathedrals round and about this green and pleasant land.

To get into York you drive past the
walls of the town

and into a gorgeous village town type arrangement with the Minster rising imposingly but
kind of cuddled by all the surrounding Ye Olde type joints.

It is simply spectacular
and I was fortunate enough to turn up in the middle of a wonderful choir orchestra performance of some muzak I did not recognise - possibly if not probably an English composer.

Lucky me, eh? Who knew God was a Anglican?

Anyhoo, the interior is breathtakingly huge

and the authorities have actualy opened up the undergound too, so youse can wander round and see the Roman stuff on which the whole thing is originally built.

So, mille grazie to the Romans for the wonders of York Minster.
