64 / 365 – Chichester

So this post is out of sequence because the pictures were taken on my usual day of Thursday, but I didn’t have access to reliable internet until now.

Here is the Mercat Cross in the centre of Chichester:

This didn’t come out as clear as I’d hoped. The tombstones in the cloisters were still easy to read, since they were sheltered from the weather. The ones outside were illegible – in fact there were only a couple where I could discern that there had been any writing on them at all. I thought this one was interesting because the date was written as 1633/4 instead of a single known date.

The Guild Hall, built between 1269 and 1282. This building was actually part of a larger complex of buildings of a community of Grey Friars. When Henry VIII dissolved the monasteries, the other buildings were destroyed, but this one was saved to be used for other purposes.

You can still walk along the original city walls.

Here’s a mound that originally held a tower built by William I. Only the mound remains today.
