Caption List:

Photo 1. The Old Mill at Harnham, Salisbury, UK. The Old Mill at Harnham, Salisbury, Wiltshire, UK is one of the oldest public houses in England, dating back to the 12th century AD. The building is now a hotel which overlooks the river Nadder but, as the name suggests, was once a mill. The river still runs right through it. There are fantastic countryside walks all around the Old Mill and it is only 20 minutes from the New Forest National Park.

Photo 2. The Maltings, Salisbury, Wiltshire, UK. The Maltings is a pedestrianised shopping area constructed alongside one of the Salisbury rivers in the heart of the city. Although a fairly recent construction, the buildings have been sympathetically built to fit in with the surrounding areas. It is only a short walk through a passage to the main shopping area in Salisbury where shops, restaurants and cafes are in abundance.

Photo 3. Salisbury city centre. Rivers run through Salisbury, Wiltshire, UK from every direction. This image shows one of the rivers flowing through Salisbury city centre on a cloudy summer day. Ducks swim up the river looking for someone to feed them. The area has also become home for a large number of seagulls who can often be seen flying around the river and buildings. It is on the main route from the central car park, just 5 minutes walk away from the shops, restaurants and cafes.

Photo 4. Crane Street bridge, Salisbury UK. A black and white image of the Crane Street bridge, one of the main roads into Salisbury city centre in Salisbury, Wiltshire, UK. If you arrive by train you will probably walk along Crane street to get to the shops, restaurants and cafes and to the main tourist attraction of the city, Salisbury cathedral. A walk off Crane street leads you into a beautiful park with wildlife, birds and beautiful flowers in their season.

Photo 5. Autumn in the park. A beautiful autumn morning in one of Salisbury's parks. The leaves on the trees are turning different colours and stand out against the evergreens. This is one of the larger parks on the outskirts of Salisbury city. It is full of colour during the spring and summer with flowers and bushes showing off their beauty. In the autumn many of the trees change colour among a variety of evergreen trees and bushes. A quiet, peaceful place to spend an hour or so.

Photo 6. River walk, Salisbury, Wiltshire, England. One of the 5 rivers which flow through Salisbury city, Wiltshire, England before they all converge on the river Avon just outside the city. This walk joins Crane Street to Fisherton Street with its specialist shops. It is also another route into the city centre. At the end of the walk two of Salisbury's rivers converge into one and there is an old mill near a beautiful pub which serves pub food in the riverside garden.

Photo 7. The house by the river. A 17th century AD house which sits beside the river right in the heart of Salisbury city, Wiltshire England. The river is swollen with recent rain and flowing very quickly to join the river Avon 200 yards away. A bridge spans the river alongside the house.

Photo 8. Magna Carta Barons, Salisbury, Wiltshire. 2015 was the anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta on 15th June 1215. One of the original copies of the Magna Carta, an extremely important document in the UK, is housed at Salisbury cathedral, Salisbury, Wiltshire. To celebrate the anniversary, statues of barons were placed all around Salisbury city and then brought together for auction in Salisbury cathedral grounds.

Photo 9. Salisbury Cathedral. Salisbury cathedral, Salisbury, Wiltshire on a moonlit night. This magnificent building was erected in the 12th and 13th centuries AD and has the tallest spire in the UK at 404 feet. A visit to the cathedral is a must for any traveller. It has magnificent stained glass windows and the Chancery is really beautiful. The cathedral sits in its own space surrounded by lawns and trees.

Photo 10. Salisbury Cathedral. A night image of the front of Salisbury cathedral, Salisbury, Wiltshire. The front of the cathedral is full of statues of religious figures and other important dignitaries from across the ages. At night the cathedral is lit up with different colours on different days.

Photo 11. Salisbury Cathedral. Salisbury cathedral and part of The Close, Salisbury seen from across fields on the outskirts of Salisbury city. This photograph was taken from a river path which runs between the Old Mill at Harnham and Salisbury city centre. Fields line both sides of the path which ends in a wooden bridge leading to another of Salisbury's many parks.

Photo 12. Tranquility in Salisbury. A view across the river from one of Salisbury's parks towards Salisbury Cathedral on a quiet winter morning. This looks over the gardens at the rear of The Close, Salisbury, Wiltshire, an exclusive area occupied by the rich and famous. There are not many places in Salisbury where the cathedral spire cannot be seen from. This is because the law makes it illegal to build anything which would block the view of the spire, the tallest in the United Kingdom.
