During our holiday to the UK a few years ago, we were fortunate to be able to stop over for lunch at The George Inn during one of our days of local sight seeing.
Located in the village of Lacock in Wiltshire, England, this picturesque ancient village is several hundred years old & has been the setting for some famous English films.
The George Inn dates back to 1361 (Wow!) & is famous for having a running license since the days of Oliver Cromwell. It was a very interesting visit – the inn with its incredibly ancient history & aura as also getting to see a village this quaint…memorable!
Bath is a city in the Somerset County of England. A World Heritage Site, this ancient city is famous for its Roman Baths. Below are photos of the Roman Bath from a bygone era. The complex also included the temple of Sulis Minerva; spooky curses that were written have been recovered from the Spring as the photos will tell.
To share an interesting quote from the Wiki article on Bath , “Archaeological evidence shows that the site of the Roman Baths’ main spring was treated as a shrine by the Iron Age Britons, and was dedicated to the goddess Sulis, whom the Romans identified with Minerva; however, the name Sulis continued to be used after the Roman invasion, leading to the town’s Roman name of Aquae Sulis (literally, “the waters of Sulis”).”
Let the photos do the talking…
