It’s that time of the week once more! Hope you all had a great Bank Holiday and the working week is being kind to you 🙂
Before the main set of photos from Silchester, here are a couple of photos of a beautiful cloud formation I took a few months ago at Sulhamstead, followed by a snap of a house along the River Kennet down at Sheffield Bottom near Theale;
Today’s offering is from a walk around the site of an old Roman town called Calleva Atrebatum. Now the site of Silchester, the university still conducts excavations in the area, but it’s a lovely walk around the ruins of the Roman wall that surrounded and protected the town.
I loved this beautiful looking church – St Mary the Virgin. Built just within the surrounding walls and dating back to the 12th or 13th Century, possibly on the site of a Roman temple, it is believed that it was built using Roman materials.
Again, if you want to know a little more about Silchester, then take a look here.
