The first item I posted in 2012 is very out of date now. I have tried to edit it but the original post keeps coming up. It is no longer a drive through, there is no longer the great prostitution and drug problem, and the...More

Just wandering down from the Rouen Road car park to a ministers lunch at Kings Church, my wife and I were impressed with the beauty of the buildings along King Street. The roof lines, the timbering, the angles. This was the red light district a...More

I thought the whole street would look like the famous pictures but its actually only a small part. Just a few old buildings. Still worth a visit.

I find this to be an exciting street because of all the wonderful architecture to be found along it. It runs from Bracondale to Tombland and was, in medieval times, the most important commercial and residential street in the city. Today it still retains many...More
