The medieval glory of… Southampton


Poor Southampton – the south coast English port was once a fine medieval city with many pretty buildings but then along came World War II and post-war redevelopment.  The Luftwaffe in particular devastated the town centre and it’s amazing that anything is left of its Middle Ages splendor.  And yet it is!

Winding through car parks, over a main road and through a housing estate is the remains – impressive in parts – of the city’s medieval walls.  I took some photos while I was there the other day and they’ve been well maintained.  Worth a look if you’re ever in that part of the world.
