Part 1: Orford

Sometimes I go out for a drive to new places and take a figure out with me for some photographs. This time the destination was a little town called Orford. It's a small, quiet place in England. Enlarge the pictures if you want to take a closer look at anything.

In the center of the town there's a church. Part of it has fallen away over the years, and a little ruined section remains at the end.

Here's our first sighting of Saber.

This tiny little town is known for something else though; it's castle. Orford castle has quite a unique design.

This photo was taken in the lowest underground level, where the well is.

Orford Castle actually has a mysterious legend associated with it -

' According to the chronicler Ralph of Coggeshall, a naked wild man, covered in hair, was caught in the nets of local fishermen around 1167. The man was brought back to the castle where he was held for six months, being questioned or tortured; he said nothing, and behaved in a feral fashion throughout. The wild man eventually escaped from the castle.'

A little way out from the town on the way home I spotted another set of ruins. These ones were much larger. They were once an Abbey, long ago.

The altar is all that remains.

MuntoeIl y a 7 ans#1196856I looked at your blog now lol! Wow Oxford is such a beautiful place, thank you for your photos *_* I really would love to travel England someday, it has such a rich history and beautiful old architecture. Were you just allowed to walk in and out the building and stuff? O_o

:)

Lots of places like the castle are owned by English Heritage. You have to pay a small fee to get in but then you can just roam around.

WindsorSevenIl y a 7 ans#1193733You should've brought one of your Dollfies! Those would be some amazing pics.

I need to get a good carry bag for Dollfies, then I can take some photos with them.

SNLIl y a 7 ans#1193466You should visit Turville next, I went there when I was little and it's a beautiful and quite little village... and there's a windmill.

That does look nice actually :)

Oh my god this place is beautiful, it reminds me the Game "Dark Souls". On the first picture, the house looks like the ones in Normandy, I guess this is because it's geographically not very far away. Definitely a place I'd like to visit...without forgetting my knight armour! :)
