Stourhead (T)

Caspar Dechmann Switzerland - 07-Aug-18

Stourhead (T)

This is probably one of the most iconic gardens in England if not in the World. Like all great gardens it is staged with so much work and artistry that you are happy to believe that this is a perfect landscape that even includes naturally the Pantheon. I was equally with the many various huge and very old trees. It is a pleasure to walk around the big lake and it is staged in a way that you have to walk counterclockwise! The attached house is great, has a remarkable picture gallery and beautiful Georgian library but is less unique then the garden.

Caerleon legionary fortress (T)

Caspar Dechmann Switzerland - 07-Aug-18

Caerleon legionary fortress (T)

We visited this former tentative site on the drive from Bath to Blaenavon. It is a nice visit with the totally overgrown amphitheater, the outlines of a legionary fortress and parts of a once large bath area. roman remains of those dimensions can be found all over Europe in probably dozens of places (including the more impressive Augusta Raurica in Switzerland). The Roman Legion Museum seems great for kids. Considering the many and much more impressive Roman WHS this site seems too modest to ever have a chance.

Lacock (T)

Caspar Dechmann Switzerland - 07-Aug-18

We visited Lacock in July 2018 from Avebury. Lacock is a very nice well-kept village that has been used in many films and series including Harry Potter. When you walk into the main street from the parking lot it is a bit disappointing that it is tarred and full of parked cares. In a way it is good the village is still lived in but it ruins a bit the feeling of time traveling. The village is nice for a stroll and a visit to the church. I loved the praying cushions! Equally nice is the Lacock Abbey, a former nunnery changed into a Mansion. Nice painting and a beautiful great hall. I think you find similar villages and mansions in the UK. Therefore it is hard to see OUV despite the pleasurable visit.

Dorset and East Devon Coast

Caspar Dechmann Switzerland - 07-Aug-18

Dorset and East Devon Coast

I was quite taken by the Dorset Coast. We spent there two days and could have easily spent more. Our first walk was to Old Harry Rock. Beautiful white cliffs (chalk is the youngest layer of the Jurassic coast's time line), not as high as Dover but purer white. We parked the car in Studland, walk east along the north shore of the peninsula and returned over the ridge. It is not clearly indicated and your have to enter a fenced meadow but you have a nice view in both bays and can easily descend over the fields downhill when you are on the hight of Studland.

Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape

Caspar Dechmann Switzerland - 07-Aug-18

Cornwall and West Devon Mining Landscape

This site is hard to grasp since it is so wide spread, perhaps too wide. When I was traveling SW England this summer I wanted to see a representable part of it and decided to visit the two nearest areas: The Tamar Valley and the Cartoon Mining District. The Tamar Valley has a lot to offer: The lively town of Tavistock has evolved architectonically nicely from medival origin to its peak time in the 19th century. It has a impressive church where as often in England friendly elderly people drank and offered tea! You can walk along the quite natural river Tavi and parallel along the historically important straight Tavistock Canal. Have also a short look at the neogothic Mount Kelly College and if you like English cemeteries (as I do) there is a beautiful one right south of Dolvin Road
