“AD 1202. The legate of the apostolic see, whom we have already mentioned, was honourably received at Melrose; and there he remained for more than fifty nights, chiefly for the purpose of putting an end to the dispute which existed between the monks of Kelso and those of Melrose. He gave ample promises to both parties, but satisfaction to neither; and after having received from each very numerous gifts in gold and silver, and a large number of horses, he departed thence, having done no good to either of the disputants, but left the suit in much the same state as he found it." . Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose. An unknown monk records his irritation at the bureaucratic failures of the church, circa 1270 in "The Chronicle of Melrose." Sadly, the church official's name was not recorded, so we don't know to what dizzying heights he rose in his profitable career. Kelso Abbey and Melrose Abbey are about 14 miles apart and share the River Tweed. I wonder how they resolved the dispute? . #openmyworld #lifewelltravelled #hiddenscotland #ig_scot #ig_scotland #streetphotography #fiftyshades_of_history #melrose #thisismykingdom #scotlandsbeauty #scotland #globewanderer #explorescotland #bbcbritain #britains_talent #omgb #weneedtogohere #cntraveler #guardiantravelsnaps #britishhistory

Fifty Shades of History has been delving deep into our records again for another great photo tagged to us at 👉🏻 #fiftyshades_of_history 👈🏻 . Today we present 🏰✨ @kmh_ffoto✨🏰 Helmsley Castle is a medieval castle situated in the market town of Helmsley, within the North York Moors National Park, North Yorkshire, England. Although the estate of Helmsley was granted to Robert, Count of Mortain following the Norman conquest; there is no evidence that he built a castle in the area. The castle, constructed in wood around 1120, was built by Walter l'Espec.Walter was childless and on his death in 1154 the castle passed to his sister Adelina who had married Peter de Roos. In 1186 Robert de Ros, son of Everard de Ros, began work on converting the castle to stone. Helmsley Castle remained in the possession of the de Roos family until 1478 when Edmund de Roos sold it to Richard, Duke of Gloucester who later became Richard III. Richard did nothing to the castle, staying instead at Middleham Castle. After Richard III's death at the Battle of Bosworth, Helmsley Castle was restored to Edmund de Roos by Henry VII. During the English Civil War, the castle was besieged by Sir Thomas Fairfax in 1644. Sir Jordan Crosland held it for the king for three months before surrendering. Parliament ordered the castle to be slighted and much of the walls, gates and part of the east tower were destroyed.

Looking down - inside the Radcliffe Observatory in the grounds of @greentempleton at @oxford_uni .. Taken during the annual Oxford Open Doors event, organised by Oxford Preservation Trust .. The Radcliffe Observatory was the #astronomical observatory of Oxford University from 1773 until 1934, when viewing conditions, weather, urban development and light pollution meant that the scientific work was transferred to South Africa. The design of the octagonal tower was based on the Tower of the Winds in Athens. .. The original instruments from the observatory are now in the @hsmoxford with the exception of Radcliffe 18/24-inch Twin Refractor telescope, which is now at the University of London Observatory

Detenidos en el tiempo al cruzar el Puente de San Pedro (sXII). Su origen podría ser romano por lo que estaría unido a la historia de la ciudad, cuando Pamplona era la Pompelo romana, fundada por el General Pompeyo. Hecho de mampostería, tiene 60 metros de longitud, fue transformado en la época medieval y adquirió el aspecto que hoy conserva. Tal vez sea el puente más antiguo de Pamplona, que reemplazó al único que hasta la Edad Media hubo sobre el Arga. Quienes afirman esto se basan en su estilo y en el hecho de que no hay ninguno similar en toda la ciudad . . . #estaes_navarra #navarragrafias #total_spain #ok_españa #conociendo_espana #asi_es_calles #enfoque_spain #europestyle_spain #spain_gallery #world_spain #romanesquearchitecture #architectureromane #medievalvillage #medievaleurope #romanico #fever_old_stones #ig_ometry #fiftyshades_of_history #bridges_of_our_world #total_bridges #raw_architecture_ #be_one_bridges #reflection_super_pics #1reflectionshot #theindependentphoto #fineartphotography #nikoneurope #europe_photogroup

gothie.chick. St Peter’s, Plemstall. The recorded history of the church goes back to

St Peter’s, Plemstall. The recorded history of the church goes back to the 7th century. The present church is believed to be built on the site where Plegmund, later Archbishop of Canterbury, lived as a hermit in the 9th century. The surrounding land used to be a marsh and the church stands in a slightly elevated area which was known as "The Isle of Chester". The original church was built in the 12th century but the present building dates mostly from the 15th century. This was financed by the Trafford family who lived locally. A tower was added at the west end in 1826. Inscriptions in the church show that there were restorations in 1684, 1711, 1802–03 and 1819. Death watch beetle was found in some roof rafters and the church was re-roofed in 1958. Electric light was installed in the church in 1966 and central hearing was installed in 1968. Since then a toilet and an entrance for disabled people have been built on to the vestry on the north side. In 2006 new lighting was fitted in the church. The pews were removed from the Barnston Chapel and replaced by modern chairs. #total_churches #tv_cgmembers #alalamiya_mystics #architecturewatch #britains_talent #Infinity_churches #church_flow #tv_churchandgraves #icu_britain #ig_united_kingdom #oldbuildings #panacea4panache #p4p_churchsunday #fiftyshades_of_history #history #jj_sombre #church #church_masters #church_flow #capturingbritain_churches #the_great_gothic_world #churchpage_feature #churcharchitecture #churchlovers #englishheritage #e2e
