Day 9 - Denbigh, Abbey Valle Crucis


Rug Chapel


Chapel from the outside.




Nave as seen from in front of the altar.


View of the altar.






Beautiful carvings on the church benches.

We had to come back there because we left Crocky's bag behind in the benches. Oops.


Plas Newydd in Llangollen


The house of the Ladies of Llangollen. Wikis of various languages will have us know that the relationship of the women is absolutely and purely 100% platonic.


"A heavenly evening. blue sky with pitches of cloud scattered over it. My Beloved and I went to the shrubbery. Spent the Evening there, brought our books. Planted our one hundred carnations."




Abbey Valle Crucis






























Other Harry Potter fans were apparently here before us.


Swallows nests everywhere.


Denbigh Castle


View of Denbigh. We never could wrap our head around British street-by-street architecture.


Well, at least they tell you.


Gatehouse to end all gatehouses.




Edmund, the young son of Henry de Lacy who authorised the building of the castle under Edward I, died drowning in this well. Must be something about it, the Welsh castles have quite a high accident rate. Only this year another teenager fell into the well, though he survived.



That's us at the Well of Death.


Another look at the gatehouse.










This castle comes with a sink in its kitchen. Pretty state-of-the-art.
