A foggy morning, the turrets of Ely Cathedral are hidden in the mist.
Through the doors, the Gothic cathedral is light and bright, with a tall nave. The centrepiece, literally, is the stunning octagon.
Cambridge is a historic university city, with beautiful buildings, centuries old, and the picturesque “backs” of the colleges.
The city is hectic with shoppers, tourists and students. Bicycles everywhere.
Just out of town is the American Cemetery. Open space with just the sound of bird song and my feet crunching on the gravel paths. 3,812 WWII graves. 5,127 names on memorial wall with no known grave.
