‘Built by William the Conqueror as a prominent outpost after the bloody and lengthy rebellion by Hereward The Wake, Ely Cathedral stands as a fine example of William’s devotion to his Religion and to his overwhelming victory for the Heart’s and Minds of that mixed of all races called the britons’.
‘Less well known is that “The Lord Protector”, OLIVER CROMWELL closed the Cathedral for 10 years, or thereabouts, due to a falling out with the local (Catholic) Clergy. Cromwell used it as a stable for his Calvary Horses’!

The capital city of Cyprus, Nicosia, is encircled by stone walls shaped like a star with eleven heart-shaped bastions that once served as military fortification for the Venetians who were one in the long line of occupiers on the island. The old city is also bisected by the infamous “green line” making it the only divided capital in the world, the South side part of the Greek Republic of Cyprus and the EU, the North side the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus and recognized as an autonomous region only by Turkey.

Near the ‘green line’ in the old city, abandoned and semi derelict, Greek Cypriot buildings once used as workshops…..decline and decay with a casual grace.
