Medieval day at Rosslyn Chapel (and Project 52: 15/42)

15/52 Ellis
15/52 Milo

Last weekend we made the most of the continuing streak of beautiful weather and went to visit Rosslyn Chapel, a 15th century church with intricate carvings. Dave used to work really near it, and could see it from his office/lab, but I’d never been before. It’s a working church so I assumed you could just go it, but actually it’s a total tourist destination, with a fancy visitor centre and café and stuff. Ten years ago (we are so old!) it featured in the Da Vinci code film, which propelled it to fame I guess! Anyway, it’s a beautiful place (no photos of the interior allowed) though possibly not the most appropriate place for small children to visit. Just as well then that it was medieval day and there were tons of kids activities outside the church. Mask making, soap carving, archery, historical documents, a dress up box, skittles and coits (sp?) and people dressed in medieval clothes talking about how people used to live. Milo used to always be really reluctant to do activuities like that but now he’s all up for it which is great. He’s worn that mask out of the house so many times since, he says it makes him look like a superhero!

Happy Easter everybody!
