St.Davids Cathedral #1

One of the trips I enjoyed the most whilst on our recent Tenby holiday with friends was a visit to St.Davids Cathedral in the town of the same name.

This was taken from the West end and shows the simple, four-square lines of the building, some of which was built as early as the 12th-century on a site of a monastery built by St.David around the year 550.

A greater appreciation of the building can be found at http://www.stdavidscathedral.org.uk/index.php?id=760

This is a wonderful picture of a great building Brian - in fact it's one of the best pictures of it I've ever seen
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chris, I take that as a very nice compliment on my picture that was taken in the middle of the day would you believe, the purists would hate that!
St David's is a lovely place and this is a great picture of this delightful cathedral.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill, we didn't get into the village proper but I agree, it is a lovely little cathedral.

I agree with both Chris and Bill, I have stayed at St Davids we had a lovely time.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tracy, we only had time for the cathedral so it will be into the village if we ever go there again I think.

I would LOVE to visit that cathedral, Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, I know you would love this cathedral, it is not flambouyant like some, but still very attractive inside, I took a lot of pictures as i usually do with these sort of buildings.

A wonderful summerpic! I have visited this cathedral many years ago, too, and I have a feeling as if I even this moment would walk over the sloping green and look at the old grey weatherbeaten stones which are telling about a great historical time as the monks and the churches were significant for the people! If I look at those photos of England I get such a desire to come back to that country where I have seen the most beautiful places! I believe that my positive GB- image has been engraved by such experiences!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine, it is nice to know you have enjoyed your visits to England so much. We have some lovely places, but then so does Germany, or at least the parts I've been to.

A super photograph, Brian. Really makes me want to take a look at the architecture close up.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Paul, it is a very modest building compared with some cathedrals but I'm sure you would like it if you visited sometime.

A beautiful setting for a beautiful building; it looks to be a sort of mini version of a proper cathedral! Thanks for the link, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, yes it is ssmall compared with some cathedrals and modest in design but still a nice building to visit.
