Thanks for the compliments! As i mentioned on the info section via YouTube----it was better than i expected (as i see that type of re-enactment events all the time at work)! They all put on a good show! It was funny. As you see from the first bit of the video, my cousins who live there took the wrong way and we ended up getting in free! Of course dodging the canon fire set up, etc... Laughing

Thanks for the info. I was wondering whether you were going to ignore those "Do not cross the tape barrier" signs! geek

I have had great feedback on my new video. The Barnet Medieval Festival have even shared it on their Facebook page! They also direct messeged me, and as I work for English Heritage, they want to interview me/get my perspective on their festival, etc. Funny stuff!

That's brilliant news! You'll be a celebrity yet, Rich. Of course, you're one already on this forum.king

Give us a link to the interview when it's done. Wink

That was in the late 1800s, and your relative would have been active in the mid 20th century? They all look stunning anyway. I can't recall visiting the Cathedral when I lived in Brum in '73. I remember interiors of numerous ale houses and a bierkeller where in my exuberance I broke some bloke's clay tankard during a sing-song. Now I think of it, I did visit the local art museum to see the Pre-Raphaelite paintings of Burne-Jones, among others. An interesting time all round. Wink

Thanks... I've never been inside the cathedral until that day by the way! Similar to how it was with Lichfield (when i filmed that) and I've been past it all my life. It's the third smallest cathedral in England after Derby and Chelmsford. It was beautiful inside I have to say.

On your question. I will have to ask him this week, if i see him, what were the exact dates he worked on the stained glass. I believe it would of been the '60s or '70s---I will get back to you on that one in the coming days.

During my shelf-dusting adventures I rediscovered this beautiful book (signed by its author) for which many thanks!

CCW, finally got around to watching your latest videos. The Birmingham`s Cathedral ceiling seems dizzying. As for the other, where was the jousting? I wanted to see more jousting. I especially wanted to see you jousting.  Laughing

Can`t find a picture of what it looked like before it went into complete ruins. Looks green and shady now though.

Yeah, bit of a different trip for this month. I've always wanted to film a castle with just the motte-and-bailey earthworks surviving in the present day. It was very peaceful and used as a dog park today. It was great seeing the man-made earthworks from all those years ago as well (though I've seen a fair few over the years, lol!), very interesting.

A in-depth view from a map is shown on this picture which is interesting;

No artist interpretations exist I am led to believe. However, this picture shows an artist’s reconstruction of a motte-and-bailey castle, built of earth and wood, surrounded by a moat. Such castles were common in late 11th-century England. Bishop Odo’s castle in Deddington would have looked similar to this, but, being able to rely on the existing massive enclosures for defence, the mound of the Bishop’s castle would not have been as high as those of other castles in the county.

Than later a stone castle as times moved on. The stone work was later demolished in the 14th century and sold on.

Rich, you've turned the historic visit video into an art form! Of course I'm a sucker for the outdoor stuff. And this was all outdoors. What a history! I love the Bayeux connection. We've been in Bayeux twice--on the first occasion we visited the Tapestry and bought it (as a foldout book) and on the second, on our way back from Guernsey, we saw an outdoor video spectacle describing the town's history. Most impressive. 

I get the impression we've been to Banbury at some point--so who know? Maybe we were in the Deddington area... Wink 

Excellent work, as always.
