Happy New Year!
I promised some more photos of Ely where my latest ebook An Ordinary Gift
is set. Above is the normal image you see on the way into Ely, the 'ship of the Fens' riding serenely against the wide skies.
Once in the town, you see just why the cathedral is so visible: it's massive! Everywhere you go in the town, you see it from one direction or another.
The original monastery buildings covered a large area, but were re-purposed when Henry VIII dissolved it and founded the King's School.

One of my very favourite places is the Old Infirmary. The roof was taken off and the central aisle turned into Firmary Lane, with the original arches now filled in and the sides turned into buildings!
Through the archway on the left hand side - this is now Choir House for the school.
More photos soon!
