Thank you Richard.
- Barley Hall in York England,
- I was in York England in May 1996. If you ever get over to England plan
a few days in York. One can get reasonable B&B near the medieval walls
(or in one case built into the wall). The place is amazing to just walk
around in. The downtown is still medieval as it never 'modernized'
during the English Industrial Revolution nor did it have a large city
wide fire (a common method of urban renewal until about 150 years ago).
So one can shop in 14 th century buildings drink ale in a pub where
General Wolfe was born and of course there is the Minster which is an
amazing church. The medieval wall still surrounds the city and the
gates bear their medieval names. Barley Hall looks interesting but I
only saw in the window as it was closed for the season. So there is
lots of period woodwork to see.
The only problem I had with York was that walking around the
cobblestone streets in modern clothes felt wrong. I wanted to in 14 th
century kit with the feel of my leather pouch on my hip.
The Royal Armoury at Leeds is under 100 km away so it makes a good side
trip for a day.
