LATER FRENCH GOTHIC: St. Maclou, Rouen, France, C. 1500-1514. While the Renaissance was already in full swing in Italy, the French were pushing the extremes with elaborate ornamentation as seen in the exquisite traceries of St. Maclou. Considered one of the best examples of the "Flamboyant style" of Gothic architecture in France.

The Chapel of St Peter on the Wall, Bradwell-on-Sea, Essex, England. The Chapel is a Grade I listed building and among the oldest largely intact Christian church buildings in England still in regular use, dating from the 7th century. The Chapel is assumed to be that of "Ythanceaster" (Bede, Historia Ecclesiastica 3.22), originally constructed as an Anglo-Celtic Church for the East Saxons in AD 654 by St Cedd, astride the ruins of the abandoned Roman fort of Othona.

St Bartholomew's gatehouse that leads to the oldest parish church in London - St Bartholomew-the-Great - was built in the sixteenth century and is where Queen Mary ate chicken and drank red wine while watching Protestant martyrs burn at the stake. It was only when a first World War German Zeppelin bomb in 1916 fell nearby that the tiles to this arch fell off to reveal this Elizabethan half timber fronted house built in 1597. Rear view of the Elizabethan gate house.

Ripon Cathedral, England. I have spent so much time in this grand Cathedral, volunteering by giving tours. The oldest Christina Church in the whole of England. Everyone should visit at least once in life.
