Salisbury, in Central Southern England, sits in a natural bowl, surrounded by gentle rolling hills.

It is a good example of 13th century town planning. Arranged as a series of squares, or "Chequers", with a small stream (actually an open drain) originally running down the centre of each street. Very forward thinking for its time.

It owed its wealth to the "Golden Economy". Sheep and wheat, and evidence of the water meadow ridge and furrow system of agriculture still exist everywhere.

A very enjoyable gallery thanks for taking the time to add some very informative captions. Salisbury is probably my favourite English cathedral, particularly its setting and elegant lines and your photographs certainly do it justice.
