Doctor Foster went to Gloucester
In a shower of rain
He fell in a puddle
Right up to his middle
And never went there again

...as the well-known nursery rhyme goes.

Unfortunately, in this instance, I went to Gloucester during a freak spell of thick, damp, freezing fog!!

    The cathedral looks interesting, but I admit docklands would be the main reason for my visit.

    Yes it’s a shame so few people wrote about Gloucester. What a nice misty photo of the cathedral with none of the scaffolding visible. I hope you get to visit it again in the sunshine too!

    Sean, I LOVE Gloucester! I have explored the cathedral thoroughly too, and it's a favourite of mine. I LOVE the thick colums, and the stain glass wall :)
