From Hull, Hell and Halifax ….

… this is an allusion to the mediaeval Yorkshire thieves’ prayer when facing justice. I can’t elaborate when blogging on a smartphone. Google it.

We’re just on board the Pride of Rotterdam, heading for …. Rotterdam, on our way to Germany.

So we spent the afternoon in Hull, a city with a proud history as a port, but these days suffering a bit from being on the road to nowhere much. Andrew Marvell, William Wilberforce and Philip Larkin were all sons of Hull, and the city makes much of them.

We plan to come and explore this city properly, when we’re not in transit. It deserves closer inspection. For now, I’ll share two views of England’s largest parish church, Holy Trinity, built in the 13th century. One is a conventional view. The other is the same church as seen in the windows of the office block opposite.

  1. A Christy Moore song I didn’t know?? I’ve never even heard of Hull but it has an impressive church. I always take similar photos, in Boston, of an old church reflected in a modern glass building . . . Have a good trip!
