Pretty awesome day today. Short mileage.36 miles, but long on history and fun. Cycled up tp Old Sarum Castle, which is a ruins of a hilltop castle that pre-dates Salisbury. Spectacular 360 degree view of rhe rolling Salisbury Plains. Then cycled along the Avon River enroute to Stonehenge.the Stone Age stone circle built supposedly as a ceremonial solstice site. Back to Salisbury to find the Old Mill Brewery.found it on the Good Pub Guides list as "must visit". Worth the ride. Then heading back into town, stopped by the Salisbury Cathedral, which also houses the Magna Carta...the document used as the foundation of our own Declaration of Independence.

THIS DAY IN CHRISTIAN HISTORY: April 28 Looking back on the history of Christianity and the Church, we notice that it is sometimes violent, sometimes inspiring, shocking, tragic, comic, or just plain bizarre. It is certainly never dull. Our Christian heritage was passed down to us through blood, sweat and tears, but mostly by the faith of our fathers. The church age as we know it is coming to an end very soon. Be very blessed and informed as you read these brief notations on the successes and failures of Christianity throughout the ages. April 28, 1192: Assassination of Conrad of Montferrat (Conrad I), King of Jerusalem, in Tyre, two days after his title to the throne is confirmed by election.

The look of the town and city before and during the reign of the latter king Richard III and Anne Neville. By Bobby Cranestone Buildings that were build before 1480 but still in existence while Anne and Richard III lived and that formed the look of their surroundings: Westminster Hall (which was build in 1097) and the close by Jewel Tower dating back from the 14th century , Salisbury Cathedral of which the main body was completed in the 13th century, York Minster with it´s nave and chapter house builded in the 14th century and it´s impressive windows (the east end situates the biggest front of stained glas in England) which were installed in the early 15th century. Also would you find if you´d travel back in mind (or by some other means) Warwick Castle which was the birthplace of Anne. She and Richard spent several years of their childhood at Middleham Castle (build in the 12th century and property of the Neville´s in 1270). Main walls remain intact to this day.

The magical mystic tour is over. Stonehenge - yup, the Roman Baths at Bath - oh *** yes, Salisbury Cathedral - did that too, church at St German (11th century, positively modern) - well yes did that as well, even the little round Chapel of the Knights Templar. So wonderful to be able to bask in the atmosphere and breathe in the ancient ness of it all, truly a very special privilege. Our last couple of days in London were amazing. The weather played ball, sunshine and warm and balmy (so were we, warm and balmy, sweating and a bit loopy by then actually), our legion of luggage was whisked off so that we could do our last little bit of sightseeing unhindered. We met with our very good friend, and ex Blues and Royal, Peter Ball, for the changing of the guard. He was in his usual good form regaling us with anecdotes of his time in uniform and things that had happened to him during this very ceremony, most of which were in fact unprintable, but very funny nonetheless. No one does pomp and ceremony like t ...

Two weeks, not for 2013, but for all-time! In May, 2013, Donovan attended a local West Ham United (of the English Premier Leaque) Player ID Camp in Statesville, NC. From that camp, Donovan was selected to attend the National Player ID Camp in July, in Rome, GA.

At the conclusion of the Elite Training Experience, Donovan and the other boys will have the opportunity to test their skills as they scrimmage the West Ham Youth Academy team. During their week in London, they will see the Queens Park Ranges v. Sunderland football match, tour Wembley Stadium and Upton Park (West Ham's home pitch) and see various sites in and around London. When the week of West Ham training is over, Donovan and I will stay on for an additional week to see Stonehenge, Salisbury Cathedral, the Everton v. Manchester City football matc ...

Devotion for Collect for 1st Sunday after Epiphany 15 January 2013 Anno Domini The Collect The First Sunday after the Epiphany O LORD, we beseech thee mercifully to receive the prayers of thy people who call upon thee; and grant that they may both perceive and know what things they ought to do, and also may have grace and power faithfully to fulfil the same; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. The Collect echoes sharply the counsel given in 2 Chronicles 7:14 – “ If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” There are no edifying words of prayer that will suffice save those petitions made in and through the Name above every other name – Jesus Christ! This Collect is taken from the Gregorian Sacramentary and was adapted to the Book of Common Prayer through its use at Salisbury Cathedral. It is a votive prayer, in nature, thereby lin ...

One of my favorite Christmas moments was a song sung by the congregation in the Salisbury Cathedral to the live donkey in their program: "Little donkey, little donkey, on the dusty road. Got to keep on plodding onwards, with your precious load. Been a long time, little donkey, through the winter's night. Don't give up now, little donkey, Bethlehem's in sight." He was so cute walking down the aisle. This stuff really gets me misty.

A Visit To The Most Gothic Place On Earth 10/29/12: Our shore excursion to the South of England around Stonehenge and Salisbury was the spookiest, most Gothic day of the whole European trip. Stonehenge looked like a ghost town from ancient times. Grave barrows abounded. Salisbury Cathedral's Close reminded me of the Tower of London. You didn't want to get locked in one of those upper floor rooms. And the Cathedral itself had the tallest spire in England. I could imagine somebody getting pushed off the observation deck, and I hope that somebody isn't somebody on our bus tour!

Have had a great day. Got in late to Salisbury by train after meeting and talking to alot of great people along the way. Camped out again last night and slept like a baby. Got up early this morning went to Salisbury Cathedral and saw one of 4 copies of Magna Carta. Got on a bus went to Stonehenge and it was amazing.
even so, I remember when I saw the original Magna Carta in Salisbury Cathedral many years ago I became humble and impressed.
Congratulations to MELISMA who have received 100,000 hits for video O Magnum Mysterium performed Salisbury Cathedral
moulettes, saw them @ Salisbury cathedral last night. Beautiful.
I've been to England and Europe any number of times and I must say Salisbury Cathedral -- which we visited today -- is one of the foremost highlights of any of the trips. Include the engineering and technological marvels of the tower tour (the views are incredible as well) and you have assembled a great touring day. Further, regardless of your route and mode of transportation, the surrounding scenery is wonderful as well.
Looking forward to seeing the Levs at Salisbury cathedral tonight. ;-)
Anyone fancy a ticket to see the levellers acoustic at Salisbury cathedral tonight

Levellers tonight at Salisbury cathedral, looking forward to that, acoustics should be brilliant :-))
Salisbury Cathedral is in for a treat and dammit I want to be there!
Salisbury Cathedral is unique amongst medieval English cathedrals having been built in just 38 years (1220 - 1258) in a single architectural style, early Eng...
I visited Salisbury Cathedral in 2006 on my first trip to London. It is THE most beautiful thing made by human hands I have ever seen. And when you consider that it was built in the 1200s, it's even more amazing. There is a copy of the Magna Carta (1215 AD) here, too.
Just returned from a nine day pilgrimage to Great Britain to visit Salisbury Cathedral, Exeter Cathedral, Winchester Cathedral, Had Eucharist at Bath Abbey, Evensong at Salisbury and St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. Visited Glastonbury ruins and Stonehenge. We are refreshed The beauty was awesome.
One of the many Cathedrals, but holding the Magna Carta (1215). Salisbury Cathedral
England tourist attractions I saw today were Stonehenge, Bath, and at the Salisbury Cathedral saw the original Magna Carta! Great day! :)
Too Sacred For A Photo --- The Magna Carta 9/6/12 This past July we took a shore excursion from Southampton to Salisbury/Stonehenge. While in Salisbury we spent all our time at the Salisbury Cathedral. There was supposed to be no flash photography inside. I did the same as last September when the same prohibition showed up in the Saint Francis Basilica in Santa Fe, New Mexico --- I took video footage. Now I’m editing it on my computer. It’s some of the best video of he trip, and I can take screen shots to create snapshots that I never took at the time. However, there’s one big lacuna in my photos --- the Magna Carta. The Cathedral displays one of four copies in existence. There was a sign about no photography, so I put away my video camera. But I wonder what harm it could have done to the document. Salisbury Cathedral should get more up to date on technology.

New blog post Salisbury Cathedral and the Magna Carta
star Michael Johnson is carrying the torch from Salisbury Cathedral tomorrow morning. And then it's heading to Wilton for 8.22am!!
No wifi last night, so I'm a day behind...yesterday we hit the road...yikes! Mark did a great job with Alex navigating...we went to Stonehenge and Salisbury Cathedral, roast beef with Yorkshire pudding for dinner (not even close to as good as Mom's) and stayed at a lovely hotel there. Today we went to Oxford University, the botanical garden there (beautiful), a couple villages in the Cotswolds, (disappointed--no thatched roofs there),and then on to Bath...toured fascinating Roman Baths and learned their history. Topped off with delicious meal at out of the way Turkish restaurant. Roads in small towns very difficult...street signs hidden and roundabouts confusing. Mark earned extra beer today! Weather cool, windy, mix of sun,clouds,sprinkles.
Stonehenge, Salisbury Cathedral (and the "best copy" of the Magna Carta, continuing my tour of the greatest hits of Western Civ)), and Bath's Baths. Trixie Steiner-Rose is waning on the cathedral front, but was buoyed up by steak and chips and a diabolical "chocolate pot."

Spent the day in Salisbury. It brought home even further where exactly I am and the significance of it. We ate lunch in a pub that was at least 500 years old, strolled along the Avon exploring shops, toured Salisbury Cathedral which was built in the 13th century and saw the ORIGINAL Magna Carta. The document the US constitution is based on. Among these historic venues there are also modern buildings. TBC
The Band for Her Majesty The Queen today at Salisbury Cathedral. Very proud to play for her at the Jubilee celebrations
I've been going over the comments my consiglieri have given me on the Yeats chapter. The poets seem to like it, but the historian (who makes many very useful comments) has, as usual, come after my prose for having too many figures of speech and impressionistic digressions. I admit: the chapter could use some chastening in this regard. But I always feel like he's Oliver Cromwell, busting into Salisbury Cathedral with a blunderbuss and blowing the heads off all the cherubs and medieval saints. Historians are Puritans; poets are Catholics -- that much is clear!
Making the most of the colour on such a grey day. (Salisbury Cathedral out of foc @ Queen Elizabeth Gardens
