hullcityengland.

This is the title you see at the top of my blog, but do you know what it is, where it is, do you care? Well for a little background here are some pictures of Hull, a city on the east coast of England, about 200 miles from London and in what is normally called the North of England. A port, once a fishing port of importance but that’s all gone now, overnight ferries take people backwards and forwards to Holland and Belgium all the year round and an airport, Humberside is not far away.

Surrounded by rolling countryside of the county of East Yorkshire and a historical link to many pieces of English history, not least the Civil War between Parliament and The King, Charles 1st. The pictures are mainly of the city centre and the house of one William Wilberforce, a local MP who was instrumental for laws helping abolish slavery during his lifetime.

Good work by the gardeners.

That is just a glimpse to the place in the title of this blog. Oh and by the way, I did post something on the same subject a while ago and can’t find out if I can move the post up the viewing scale so here is a link.

    • Thanks for you post and observation, but I’m afraid Hull is not cool, classy, or any other euphemism that gets said about the likes of London, New York, Tokyo, you get the drift, I am biased, but the place is underestimated, oh and some fascinating thoughts on your blog.
