St Andrew's From Above

Taken from 160ft up, on a fairground ride. The owner of the ride gave me a few minutes up there to take photos.

      White history yes, but Australia's been inhabited for over 40,000yrs before the white came there. The history of Australia is still there, it's just that the whites don't see it, and in most cases they've destroyed it.

      very true, there is plenty of rock paintings and if you talk to the Aboriginal people an amazing history, but me being born in England, I really miss the old churches and castles

      Understood. It's reckoned that some 400 men & boys lost their lives building Wells Cathedral & it saw the end of the Mendip Forest, for timber & scaffolding. Most folks are unaware of that, and it's thanks to the scribes who put quill pen to parchment that we know these things. But then I've been involved in the Social & Oral History Project.
