Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

Bow Bells

Walking around the city with my brother today we stumbled across St Mary Le Bow church which is famous for its bells. Anyone born within the sound of the bells can call themselves a 'cockney'. The church was designed by Sir Christopher Wren and though it was partly destroyed during WW2 it was rebuilt to the original design. However the interior has been redesigned with stained glass windows reflecting the history of some of the City of London churches.
