History and Lupins

These rich red lupins are a perfect foreground to the Constable’s House which is in Christchurch’s Priory Quarter

Christchurch is well worth a visit at any time of the year (as is our entire region). We visit regularly (20mn drive from Bournemouth) and stroll down the High Street (Indie shops), along the River Avon past the Priory, down to the “Town Quay” (with Place Mill dating to 1100AD), the “Quomps” (grassed area), and along the River Stour. Plenty of cafés, eateries, pubs ...

As the topic is history:-

“Christchurch castle's great hall, dating from around 1160, is likely to have provided the main accommodation of the Norman castle (which was demolished by order of Parliament in 1662). It later became the home of the castle's Constable, known as 'The Constable's House'. The building features one of only five Norman chimneys still surviving in England”.
