This is Kirkstall Abbey in Leeds. A favourite place to visit for generations of the cities families. I’ve had many lovely days out here over the years.
A few years ago I was visiting with my young grandchildren. One of them asked why the church was ‘all broken’.
Goodness me, where to start? A man abusing women, politics and power, a country divided on religious grounds.
We made a start on the complicated, cruel and let’s face it sometimes shameful subject of English history, spent a while admiring the architecture and retired for an ice cream. A fun time was had by all.
