…Easter Monday

The Old Palace Hotel

For the second day running breakfast was not being served in the Garden room but in the same room as the previous day. The experience was a lot less chaotic but when my scrambled eggs turned up they were rather overcooked. After breakfast we checked out of the hotel and put our cases in the car before visiting The Medieval Bishops’ palace that is situated next to The Old Palace Hotel.

As we got in the car to leave Lincoln the Cathedral bell struck the hour of 11 O’Clock reminding me that I would miss hearing them sound. We intended to visit a Civil War exhibition in Newark but we arrived to find the museum was not complete and didn’t open until May. So instead we headed off to Kedleston Hall for lunch and a tour of the house. After this we continued on our journey home, stopping at Tesco on the way to pick up something for an evening meal. When I got home I was reminded that I had forgotten to take a picture of the Easter Cross outside the parish church so I grabbed my camera to rectify the situation.

    There was a large, plain, unadorned wooden cross at the Moot Hall in Keswick this week. All the more poignant for being understated.

      This cross started life as an unadorned wooden cross which was carried at the head of a procession round the town on Good Friday. It was then placed in front of the church ready for decoration as part of the Easter Sunday service.

    Beautiful pictures of the building and I am glad that you went back to capture the cross. Not something we see in the Netherlands.
