The West Sussex city of Chichester is home to the 11th century Chichester Cathedral which contains the shrine to Saint Richard of Chichester. Contained within the cathedral, in the south aisle, is a window in the floor which enables visitors to see the remains of a Roman mosaic pavement. The cathedral is unusual in the United Kingdom because it has a separate bell tower located a few meters from the main building. Philp Larkin, the renowned poet, took inspiration for the poem "An Arundel Tomb" from the medieval tomb of a knight and his wife which is inside the cathedral.
Most of the architecture of the Roman town within Chichester has been declared a conservation area that contains many Grade I listed buildings. The Butter Market in North Street was designed by John Nash, and was opened in 1808 as a food and produce market. In 1900, a second story was added to the building, originally housing an arts institute. The Corn Exchange in East Street was built in 1833, and was one of the first in the country. It is an imposing building, designed to show off its importance to trade. In 1883 it was also used for drama and entertainment.
Salford, located in the north west of England, has a secret that many visitors don't realise - 60% of the city is green space! The city has three green flag parks, five local nature reserves and over 20 public parks, all of which offer visitors plenty of things to do and see. You can explore one of the beautiful country parks such as Clifton Country Park's meadows, play hide and seek in Worsley Woods, take a leisurely stroll at Blackleach Country Park, or enjoy a brass band concert with an ice cream in the summer at Victoria Park. If you prefer a more wild approach, try some real wilderness at Chat Moss. If you are looking for a taste of Salford's past, visit Ordsall Hall which is a formerly moated Tudor mansion, the oldest parts of which were built during the 15th century. The mansion is located in the Ordsall area of Salford and was the family seat of the Radclyffe family, who lived in the house for more than 300 years. The hall was the setting for William Harrison Ainsworth's 1842 novel Guy Fawkes, written around the plausible although unsubstantiated local story that the Gunpowder Plot of 1605 was planned in the house.
