A Trip to Worcester City Center & The Cathedral

You can’t beat starting the day with a nice egg and bacon sandwich with freshly made homestyle wholemeal bread and a dribble of HP Sauce.

Bacon & Egg Sandwich

The weather wasn’t great in the morning so I just hung around at home, had some light lunch and headed into the city.

Planning to check out the cathedral and perhaps a walk down the river, the river garden was closed though.

Bought a couple of things, but the sales are coming to the end, so not much to get.

I did a bit of street photography whilst I was hanging around.

If you’ve ever been to UK you’ll see these evangelical fellas standing around the place renouncing our sins and putting the world to rights.

It’s quite amusing to hear him ranting on.

Edward Elgar the treasure of Worcester!

Edward Elgar

Sir Edward Elgar, 1st Baronet, OM, GCVO (2 June 1857 — 23 February 1934) was an English composer. Several of his first major orchestral works, including the Enigma Variations and the Pomp and Circumstance Marches were greeted with acclaim. He also composed oratorios, chamber music, symphonies and instrumental concertos. He was appointed Master of the King’s Musick in 1924.

I took a wonder around Worcester Cathedral too, I’ll write more about that later.

    That sandwich looks so simple yet enticing with the yolk dribbling down the middle like that…
    (It’s almost screaming: “EAT ME! – You know you want to….”)
    (Or maybe I’m just hungry cos I haven’t had my breakfast yet)

    🙂

    Sir Edward Elgar was also into ciphers and codes and stuff as well (if my brain remembers correctly … I have a vague recollection that one of his codes has never been deciphered!)
    How’s that for an obscure fact? 🙂

    Don’t bother with those evangilist preachers, you’re only encouraging them by listening to them. lol

    I run a martial arts blog, and I’m interested in swapping links with your website.

    I’ve put a link to your website here –

    Thanks,

    Good to see your write-up on Sir Edward Elgar. I am an admirer of his music, especially the Cello Concerto with Yo-Yo Ma and the LSO conducted by Andre Previn.

    As you are interested in photography, you should get a Yahoo flickr account – there are many keen photographers there!

    KY: You can buy it in Tesco’s 😉

    J: You can put it down to the photography if you like.

    wombok: Thanks! Come back for more soon.

    foodcrazee: Well..that already went a bit wrong, so may aswell enjoy it before I have to hit the Gym again.

    Andy: Well they are amusing for a few minutes anyway. I’m afraid I don’t really do the link exchange thing, I will check out your blog though and if I like it I’ll link it. Feel free to link me tho.

    Steve: Cheers, he does have some good stuff aswell as being a Worcester lad! You can find my Flickr here.
