They've been used a bit, wouldn't you say?

Beautiful pictures, and I believe I have stepped on most of those steps! I was only saying the other day that I would like to see the Ironbridge again. The last time I went was when I was at school, so about 36 years ago.

Paulette said...

Those photos are beauties, the bridge is my favorite. I don't know if I would like walking down those circular steps though.

Well, I've suffered a few odd stairs in my time, experienced a few ups and downs, but... Bad puns aside, that's a pretty impressive display of the steps of Olde England! I'm worried that you might know bits of it better than we natives do. Have a lovely weekend.

Sandra said...

i am in love with all the step photos, all of them.. really beautiful shots and so are the steps themselves and so many different types... also the buildings and roof lines.. awesome shots..

podso said...

Great post! All those winding stairs! I don't mind climbing to the top if its enclosed; if not, I try not to look down. :-) I too love the last two the best! You have great memories and the photos to remind you.

TexWisGirl said...

a bunch of steps, but some great fences and walls, too! :)

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

A lot of steps to climb, but oh the views! Love the dry stone wall too!

Robin said...

Great pictures!! I can't wait for September to come so I can be back into our beloved England.

I think I am winded from all those steps. Great photos.

Anita Johnson said...

I feel like I have been on a bit of a vacation...and we all need one with this slow spring in Wisconsin! I loved those worn steps...amazing the history there!

Carla from The River said...

Great photos.

Heide at ApronHistory said...

Love all the photos of steps. Great theme!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Was it snowing or raining in the view? I love all the photos. I just love England with all my heart. So many awesome stairways!!!

Terri D. said...

My knees hurt just looking at those steps! LOL Beautiful views, and some very mysterious looking stairways! Awesome photos!

Pamela Gordon said...

What a great idea to photograph all the different steps you climbed in those famous buildings. Very interesting! I love the last two photos of the footpaths and the stone wall. Beautiful post!

Butterfly 8)(8 Bungalow said...

That's neat that you went to James Herriot's museum!

Vee said...

Your favorite is mine. It looks straight out of Shadowlands. I was intrigued by the curvy stairs...perhaps because I have a set of my own quirky stairs. I would not like to climb that many.

Eva Ason said...

Great thematic post. Your London hotel is etched in my brain for when the time comes. Interesting seeing the Ironbridge shots, was there last Autumn for the first time.
