St Edmundsbury Cathedral, Bury St Edmunds

Originally the parish church of St James, the cathedral was developed over many centuries and in 1914 the Cathedral of the Diocese of St Edmundsbury and Ipswich was created.  More recently, a new tower, cloisters and chapels were added thanks to the Millennium project.   As a consequence the Cathedral is a sparkling combination of the old and the new.

A few shots of the magnificent neo-gothic Parliament building in Budapest which is the third largest Parliament building in the world.  The shots were taken starting from dusk into the late evening.

Grand Union Canal – Cosgrove, Milton Keynes

Here are a few shots taken during a stroll along the Grand Union Canal at Cosgrove, Milton Keynes on a pleasant and unusually warm day.   In amongst the not so unusual narrowboats and wildlife was Bridge 65 which is one of only two ornamental bridges that grace the Canal.  The gothic style bridge which was built in 1800 is  not surprisingly a grade II listed monument.  The Cosgrove Aqueduct which was opened in 1811 (after 3 failed attempts)  is the oldest broad canal iron trough aqueduct and was built to cross the River Great Ouse.

Paris – Église Saint Germain-l’Auxerrois

This little gem of a Gothic church is situated opposite the Louvre and, conveniently for me, was directly adjacent to the hotel we were residing in.  The church which dates around the 12th century originally belonged to the Louvre when the latter was a royal palace.  A lot of restoration has been carried out throughout the centuries and the only surviving original feature is the impressive bell tower,captured below on a slightly murky day.  Certainly not to be ignored when visiting the Louvre.  Saint Germain-l'Auxerrois Saint Germain-l'Auxerrois Saint Germain-l'Auxerrois Saint Germain-l'Auxerrois Saint Germain-l'Auxerrois Saint Germain-l'Auxerrois Saint Germain-l'Auxerrois Saint Germain-l'Auxerrois 9 Saint Germain-l'Auxerrois© [John Mallaney] and [jdmallaney In The Frame], [2012].

Paris – Eglise Saint Merri

I stumbled across this lovely little church whilst visiting the Centre Georges Pompidou which was just around the corner.  The 16th century Gothic church houses the oldest bell in Paris which is dated 1331.  Unfortunately, the church is undergoing renovation so photographic opportunities were limited.
