    Beautiful, Historical, Interesting and Inspiring Places in England

    In spired by Svea's recent thread about places to visit in Sweden I thought we should have a similar thread for people to talk about places in England they have visited.
    Ironbridge, Shropshire
    I've been here on a holiday earlier this year and it really took my breath away. Very picturesque and it hosts many museums about it's industrious history and Abraham Darby who came up with a way of producing pig-iron by the use of coke instead of charcoal.

    There are also many good places around here and I would recommend the market-town of Ludlow also.

    Gunnerside, North York moors

    Stunning natural beauty makes this an ideal location for a walking holiday.

    My wife and I are planning a vacation to England this December so I am very interested in this thread.

    Personally, I'd like to take a sort of castle tour and just spend a week or two visiting the different castles and historical museums. Still trying to figure out the most economical way of doing it.

    Lincoln Cathedral of course!



    Inside:
    Nave

    Choir

    Dean's Eye

    The Rose Window


    St Hugh's Shrine:

    The Shrine of Little Saint Hugh (a Christian boy who was supposedly sacrificed by Jews in 1255, wiki page here, interesting story):

    The entrance:



    It was one of the tallest buildings in the world for hundreds of years up until the Tudor times, when a storm collapsed the spires, this is probably how it would have looked:

    Sadly most modern structures are poorly built using substandard materials and won't last for more than 50 years.

    It's amazing that medieval Europeans were able to build churches that are still standing after a thousand years, but in the modern age we can't manage to keep a building standing for more than a few decades.

    Why's that? I don't really see why if it could have been built several hundred years ago it coudn't be done today. I really don't see how if our ancesots built such beautiful architecture in their time that it we cannot build buildings that go down in history.

    Is it because the high quality materials and resources we have been using no longer exist or somehow have been all used up?

    Or do intruders and what not come to demolish what we build or governments request they be taken down?

    Or is it because of multiculturalism and political correctness and whatnot we cannot hire all European workers nowadays to build something and we have to have niggers and spicks doing some of the work lest the outcome be inferior.

    Not sure if this would fit into historical, or even interesting, but these villages relatively near to me are undoubtedly beautiful and English.
    Exton, Rutland:



    Knipton, Leics.:


    Villages in the Vale:


    Engle & Seaxe up becoman,
    ofer brad brimu Brytene sohtan,
    wlance wigsmiþas, Weealas ofercoman,
    eorlas arhwate eard begeatan.

    Looks like a perpendicular style to me now I've seen other photoes.
