View of Bath Abbey. Notice the diapered arches.
View from our first roof stop on the tower tour at Bath Abbey. Lars had a proper freak out about the narrow winding spiral staircase.
The ringing chamber at Bath Abbey. There are three mechanisms to ring the bells. We were in the bell chamber when they were rung on the hour.
Behind the clock face at Bath Abbey. Before electricity, a person was locked in this tiny chamber to maintain lamps.
The view through the decorative stone work on the roof.
One of the decorative spires on the roof of Bath Abbey. Notice the lightning rods.
Proof that I made it to the top of the tower.
This and the three photos above were all taken along the serpentine in Hyde Park.
The front facade of Harlaxton Manor.
The next several photos are all of the Harlaxton gardens.
The organ screen at Lincoln Cathedral.
One of the rose windows at Lincoln Cathedral.
The Apprentice's Well is one of my favorite features of the cathedral. Here, the apprentice stone masons practiced carving. You can see the carvings represent a variety of skill levels.
This is a "corpse tomb" at Lincoln Cathedral. We see the Bishop in all his earthly finery and below as a mere body soon to be ravaged by the decay of death.
A view of the great hall at Harlaxton, taken from the minstrel's gallery. To see more about the hidden places at Harlaxton, watch George's videos. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLixAGT_2Yf5L1jj1ktP9YoWmF0NJmAxgC

One of the many Atlanteans throughout the manor. This one sits in the minstrel's gallery of the great hall.
Lars posing with the statue of Sir Isaac Newton in Grantham.
The old water source in the center of Grantham. This is a Grade I listed structure.
The Church of ST. Mary and St. Peter in Harlaxton village.
The vie of the manor from the beginning of the mile long driveway. The same driveway the students in my era used for running the naked mile.
Two photos of the blue corridor at Harlaxton Manor. In the days of Gregory Gregory, this was the primary guest wing. Today, many of the faculty stay on this corridor.
