“A quite extraordinary Gothic Revival Victorian House – a shortish drive to get there but well worth a visit – the Gibb family who built it made their money importing guano as fertiliser. Extensive formal and market gardens.”

“St George's Hall (right opposite Lime street station) is one of Prince Charles's favourite buildings. It is built the wrong way round and quite a big deal for the Architect who orchestrated the build. Nevertheless it is very much a commanding building and worth a visit especially inside to see the Old Court and visit the Judge's camber and the prison cells. Once in a while the floorboards are lifted and reveals a wonderful mosaic tiled floor in the large Hall. A very beautiful majestic building and well worth a visit. ”

“Rhuddlan Castle (Welsh: Castell Rhuddlan) is a castle located in Rhuddlan, Denbighshire, Wales. It was erected by Edward I in 1277, following the First Welsh War. Much of the work was overseen by master mason James of Saint George. Rhuddlan, which was not completed until 1282, was built concurrently with Flint Castle, at a time when King Edward I of England was consolidating his conquest of Wales. It was temporarily his residence, and his daughter, Elizabeth, is presumed to have been born there.”
