Took advantage of the weather and went on a visit to Waltham Abbey.
Parts of it date back to the 7th Century and it's perhaps best known for being the claimed burial site for Harold Godwinson (Wessex) famous for getting an arrow in his eye in 1066.
The tower was built during the time of Mary Tudor (and the only one built during her reign).
A statue of Harold.
Some blurb about the memorial.
And the memorial itself.
I also took some random tomb stone photos (people must have thought I was bonkers) and wished I had a graveyard kit like I've heard some people have.
Next stop, St Albans Abbey...
Oh, and if any pre-1500 peeps would like to use the photos for his profile you are more than welcome to do so. :-)
