Where in the world ?
« on: July 09, 2009, 09:59:34 am »
This is a bit like 'guess the object' except you have to guess the place instead - can be just the country or the area / city / landmark etc.
Specific detail required for the winning answer is at the poster's discretion  ;D ;D
Here's one to start us off ...

then speed the stardust on its flight
to change dread darkness into light, cold chaos into ecstasy!

heating this building must cost a fortune...  :D

Aida if we are where I think we are, the view you have is on a path beside a wade-able stream and in the foreground are weather-exposed tree roots in a verge beyond which are verdant pastures leading up to the Abbey grounds. It's quite a distance, the Abbey is enormous!!

Perhaps somewhere on the other side of the Pennines   ;)

No idea...looks neat though weezerd.  The Abbey looks pretty peaceful too...I just hope I can spend a night there without seeing any ghosts, or if they're friendly, then I can spend a night out looking at the stars and chatting with the past.

Well if you went to Bolton Abbey you certainly would spend a night under the stars, as AFAICR there are no covered buildings in the vicinity at all!

Yes, there is a roof.  It's called Heaven and, as in a teenager's room, the cealing is painted with stars, planets, and moons.
