We spent three days touring this island during our stay in Cape Verde. We must have seen everything in this vid but I know for sure we stopped at the watery bit after the one-minute mark with that tall pillar of rock. Santo Antão grabbed us more than our "home base" of Sao Vincente...

Wigmore Castle must have been a fascinating place to visit. The video (another Rich classic) gives a good idea of the ambience but I should imagine that nothing beats visiting it in person.

Looking at the wiki it seems there's much to rediscover there among all the vegetation and deposits of debris. But as it's privately owned, English Heritage can only do so much--is that how it is?

English Heritage conserved it in a way that ensured the castle’s natural environment was preserved from 1990 to date. When conserving the site in the 1990s, English Heritage deliberately retained its wildness, as the castle had become home to rare and unusual species including lesser horseshoe bats and wildflowers such as ploughman’s spikenard. Accumulated debris was allowed to remain, and the grasses, ferns and flowers growing on the walls were carefully lifted up and replaced as ‘soft-capping’ to protect the walls from rain and more destructive plants like trees.

Thanks for clarifying, Rich. Sounds like a wonderful strategy to me.

I love this format! The other one as well, but the descriptions/discussions really add to the experience. You can hear most of what's being said, enough to keep the narrative line going. And I didn't hear the F-word once!

Is this the standard format now? Or will you be alternating the two? A great watch/listen anyway.

I'm going to be alternating between the two, John.  So some months will be music over the videos and others non-music videos. I did do this before, and as you know from my sporadic use of the odd swearword back in the day. However, after many requests to do both/more non-music videos more regularly I agreed with the votes.

They're also easier to edit! lol! ... Thanks for the kind words as per.

They used to put a lot of great artistry in every aspect of the buildings of those times. Wish they still did that in this day and age. Guess they didn`t have the cheaper is better mentality like they do now. As always, another great video from Medieval Richard!

Thank you! I also couldn't agree more. The attention to detail was amazing! Lichfield Cathedral was hands down one of the best cathedrals I've been to, just magnificent!

I hope you liked the scene at 0:32, where I leave the audio from the footage mixed over the background music. Reason was as I filmed that section, they started ringing the bells. It was awesome! I got to the cathedral early that morning, and as we're having crazy hot weather in the UK for February, it made it even better. When I was filming round the place, the man or lady was warming up on the organ for mass later that day. That was amazing to hear. I felt nothing but happiness and warmth being in that cathedral.

Only up the road from me as well, should of visited sooner! I mean I've always walked near it, when up that way, but never that close to it/going inside. Only previously seeing it from the distance of the town.

Those bells! Wow!  Where I live they have electronic church bells that ring. I always wish the power would go out whenever I hear them.  Laughing

Just came back from a trip up north to Canada. On the way up stopped in Jamestown, NY and visited the Lucille Ball museum! Then on the way back down ended up taking some back roads through Maryland and west virginia (may have been virginia?) Scary! The roads were so curvy and terrifying! Ended up on a one lane bridge somewhere too! The road was called a scenic by pass but I really should have stuck with the major highways!

Anyhow I'm already planning my next trip up north. I do love being up north!

Hi Ashley. Good to hear you're travelling to Canada on a regular basis. It's clearly where your heart lies.

I remember similarly hair-raising experiences driving in Norway along steep winding roads next to sheer drops with no barriers and lorries hurtling past. Terrifying indeed!

Shame on you for not visiting it earlier!

Yes, those bells sound great. I also love that rotating shot of the vaulted ceiling! Augustus Selwyn has a pretty ornate chapel. And I see George Gilbert Scott did some restoration work on in the mid and late 1800s.

A beautiful cathedral beautifully rendered in your video, as always.
