by Vickster

The Lunt Roman fort, Baginton, near Coventry.
It's a partial reconstruction of the fort that was established there in 64AD following the Boudiccan rebellion.
Initial excavations in 1960 uncovered the remains of the defensive ditches of the Roman fort, which led to extensive excavations between 1965 and 1973.
Sadly, visitors are not currently able to stand on the ramparts, but it's still well worth a visit.

Fancy something abit posher?

by Thistle-Rose about 1450s

Beautiful, delicious, tasty posh nosh!!!! A lovely intimate restaurant with a delightful feel. It is very cosy, but not so close and cosy that you are cramped! They offer a great menu with lots of choice, starters, appetisers, lite bites, and of course main courses and desserts. There is also a lot of very good wine on offer here! I very much enjoy the bruschetta and I also usually go for the lamb which is served with amzingly good vegetables. You definfitely do not get given loads, the focus is upon quality rather than quantity at this lovely cafe bar. I have also shared a dessert platter which has lots of different tasty sweet bites on - a lovely end to your meal.

Visit Stratford-upon-Avon, for a visit to the theatre, Shakespeare's birthplace, Ann Hathaway's cottage, Mary Arden's house, etc, etc, etc.
Well, Shakespeare was born there, and retired there, which makes it fairly important! It is also a pleasing little town - though prone to tourists in high numbers - but go and you'll see why. It's great in the off-seasons!

Lychgate Cottages

by Myfanwe

Adjacent to the entrance to Trinity church can be found these three 15th century cottages. They were originally one building named 'Lychgate House'. The timber used for these buildings has been accurately tree-ring dated to around 1414-15.

The word Lych is old English and means corpse, hence a Lychgate being the entrance by which a funeral procession would enter a churchyard and under which the coffin would be rested awaiting the vicar's arrival.
