St William's College courtyard

A few paces through a vaulted archway bring you into the rectangular courtyard of St Williams's College with its stone and brick ground floor supporting the timber frame of the first. It's like this all the way round the courtyard; this shot takes in a little under half of the pleasant open space. 

Another souvenir of our recent trip to Picardy, France is below. Fans of the television series Merlin will recognise the castle: it is Viollet le Duc's restoration of the château de Pierrefonds. Pierrefonds is a charming little town on the edge of the Forest of Compiègne.


  1. Great building, I love the timber frame.

  2. That's a lovely old building! Great shot of the magnificent castle too.
