Travelling Lace



Hi,
On Craftree one lady produced  a piece of tatted lace which  is travelling the world,  and it’s my turn to have Lacy as she is called.  Eventually the owner of the lace is going to make up a book about her travels.
I live in Somerset so she been travelling around Somerset with me,  and at the moment she in Greece.

Firstly she went to Castle Cary.  Castle Cary is a small market town,  I took a picture with her of the roundhouse.  The roundhouse was an 18th Century prison,  this is a temporary prison or village lock up built in 1779 for £23.00 from money left to the poor of Castle Cary in 1805.  It is a circular stone structure and has a domed roof, 7ft in dia., and 10 feet high with two iron grills for ventilation, no windows and of course no electric as in those days there was no electric.





Her next journey took her to Wells.  Wells is an historic and Medieval city and the smallest city in England,  famous for the 13th Century Cathedral.
The picture is the Bishops Place Gate,  leading to the Bishops place unfortunately I could not walk any further due to server pain in my hip,  The Bishops place has been home of the Bishops and the Diocese of Bath and Wells for 800 years,  construction started in 1210 and is a grade one listed English Heritage buildings.





This is a picture of the Town hall in Well market Place,  fans of Poldark will recognise this building as it was used in the filming of the series of Poldark which unfortunately has now finished and the last episode was last Sunday and there will be no more.







And finally she visited Kilmesdon,  home of Jack and Jill the nursery rhyme.









Shes in Greece now next part of her journey when I get home
