Camden Market

On friday myself and the boy hotfooted to London for the day. We had originally planned to go to Westminster Abbey but it was quite expensive to get in so we decided to visit the British Library. Mahooosive but unfortunately you need to have a pass to have a proper look around so we scampered along to Camden Market which is just along the road. It was bloody awesome!!! Very overwhelming but i managed to buy a nice white lace dress from one of the many stalls (only £10) and ate falafel balls, yum! On the way home we went to Giraffe in Westfields, the boy had the Giraffe Burger and i had the Veggie burrito :)

The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, mentions Berkhamsted as the place where the archbishop of York, Edgar aetheling, earl Edwin and earl Morcar, surrendered to William (they probably didn't have any choice):

'He (William) went up with all the army that was left to him, and those who had since come over the sea, and ravaged all the parts he went over, until he came to Berkhamsted. There he was met by archbishop Aldred, child Edgar, eorl Edwin, eorl Morkere and all the best men of London'

So was Berkhamsted castle thrown up before or after the men surrendered? Well, before it was held by Robert of Mortain (William's younger half-brother), Domesday Book reveals that the town was held by Ea…

Cat

We now have a cat, named Bella!



She's absolutely lovely and is settling in well. Best decision we've ever made.

My next post will be about Orford Castle, where we're heading to on Thursday. Hope the weather stays nice!
