You have to love that tower and it seems you had a fine day for a visit.
I'd love to see what look like roof bosses closer up. Google time, I think.

They say it's the finest Norman tower in England- and I'm not going to quarrel.

Oddly, both the tower and the Norman interior are very reminiscent of Durham, although different periods of building at Durham, which makes direct influence that bit less likely...

Lovely photos, by the way; the interesting angles really work.

Thanks.

I suppose Tewkesbury is more or less contemporary with Durham. I don't suppose it's at all unlikely that the same masons might have worked on both.

It's a lovely small town. Our friend Keith says we should have gone looking for the antiquarian bookshop.

Once again, I was lucky with the light. One doesn't get too many January afternoons as glorious as this.

No wonder they call my home area NEW England! Most of our towns and many of our streets are named after places in the UK. Tewksbury, Massachusetts. Dorchester, Massachusetts. Gloucester, Worcester, etc. Suffolk and Norfolk counties, Hampstead and Hampshire counties. Essex Street. And so on ad infinitum.
Your places are so much more beautiful than ours. I am a Capricorn, and have an affinity for old things, ancient places, etc.
Thank you for continuing the photo journey through your wonderful land!

Thanks.

I guess those early settlers were a little homesick.
