It was sunny today although the wind cooled things down a bit.
We have only just noticed Lady Pecket's Yard which is right across the street. It is a delightful alley way which contains a coatwainer which is a craftsman who makes high quality shoes as opposed to a cobbler who repairs shoes.
|The Coatwainer is on the left.|
The Guildhall of the Company of Merchant Adventurers was open today at a cheap rate because there was an antiques fair in progress. The building is very old indeed and the great hall was impressive as was the chapel.

|The outside is every much as impressive as the inside.|
The Red Lion provided a very good dark mild and we were surprised that we were the only people in there.
|The dark mild had a flavor of molasses|
Lunch was a good carvery with roast beef, pork and Yorkshire pudding with lots of good vegetables.
|The west side of the Minster is beautiful in the evening light|
