Pilgrimage to Stratford-Upon Avon

On the Twenty-First of February 2015, (thanks to a gift from my wife), I fulfilled a long-held ambition and did my pilgrimage to William Shakespeare’s hometown of Stratford-Upon-Avon. It was a short visit, a night and a day but it was enough to take in a fascinating and historic town. Here are some photos:

    • Thanks for your comment, yes we had a great time in Stratford-Upon-Avon. The quote on Shakespeare’s grave is thought to have been written by Shakespeare himself, but as with so much about his life there is now definitive evidence to prove this. I found a website which says ‘Shakespeare is buried in the chancel of Holy Trinity Church in his hometown of Stratford, Warwickshire. His gravestone bears an epitaph which Shakespeare himself supposedly wrote. It warns:

      Good friend for Jesus sake forbeare,
      To dig the dust enclosed here.
      Blessed be the man that spares these stones,
      And cursed be he that moves my bones.’
      Hope that helps.
      Job.
