This afternoon I am presenting few images from a recent visit to the famous Chedworth Roman Villa in Gloucestershire, England

Roman Britain is one of my key passions and visitors should view the Roman tours section of my main website:

Most of Chedworth is enclosed Here is a pic of the hypocaust system-an early form of underfloor central heating.
Here is a mosaic for which Chedworth is famous.
Hopefully, in June I will be leading a Roman Britain tour which should yield many more images of villas and the like.

Today, I am presenting images from a tour of St. Andrews. This is a very popular location with much to offer the visitor including: the famous Old Course (home of golf), a ruined castle and ruined cathedral. The city is located on the edge of the sea and the beaches featured in the opening scenes of the film Chariots of Fire.

Here is the famous Swilken Bridge where most visitors have their photo taken.

Here is the Old Course with Royal and ancient admin building.

St. Andrews complements a trip along the quaint fishing villages of the Fife Coast. Absolutely great!
