Chichester

After a fine breakfast in the Buttery, Elayne went off and did her Christmas shopping with her sisters. Bill here, took the cowards way out by going and looking for historic and interesting Chichester. He found a bit of each.

Knowing that there was a high certainty that it would start raining around midday, I decided I would do any outdoor activities first. Starting with the Canal. I’m not sure what you would call it – The Basin? a rectangle of water at the head of Chichester Canal. At the moment, it looks like Father Christmas and his troupe of Reindeer are relaxing and building up their energy before the Christmas rush.

I strolled probably for a bout 10 minutes down the stretch of the canal. It really was most relaxing and very scenic. There were some interesting houses on South Bank Street (or perhaps just South Bank?) From there, I walked back up South Street to the Cathedral. I had the opportunity of a guided tour which I declined saying I didn’t have enough time . So the vicar gave me a leaflet containing a guided route. One thing I didn’t know was that the ashes of the Composer,Gustav Holzt (The Planets) were interred there. Not the largest cathedral in the world, but intriguing none the less.

Fro m the Cathedral, I walked not much more than four minutes to the Novium, a smallish museum, covering an part of a Roman Bathhouse. Coming out of the Novium in to the forecast rainstorm. From there, after checking I decided to come home on the train. It had been a very pleasant and enjoyable day.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
