The Fat Badger

Back in York and ready to check out one of the pubs our driver recommended.
While Charlie was checking out the pub sign I was taking a photo of one of the entrances to the ancient wall that surrounds the city.
York was founded by the Romans around 71 AD but was taken over by the Vikings.
The wall you see in the distance was built by the Romans and goes all the way around the city.
There was a lot to see in York and we enjoyed our visit there very much.

Fascinating slits in that ancient wall - I assume so arrows would have a hard time getting through!

Looks and sounds like a super place to visit and experience a touch of the past.

That wall is quite impressive. So neat seeing through the arch.

A fine view of the city walls and that pub sign. Nice to see Charlie too. "V"

right by the defensive walls is a good spot for a fortifying image providing a rich taste of the locale..

Fun sign and name for an establishment, and a fine shot of the wall, too. V.

Amazing to see this ancient Roman wall, but I think Charlie has other ideas! V

Looks like a great place to spend time in - both the city and the pub!
