You Are Not Morgana and I Am Not Merlin. #notquitelost Nimue: She met Merlin when aged 16. He was deeply smitten.

#notquitelost - Review: 'She has a knack of making us want to follow in her footsteps and explore these places for ourselves, to look through the same windows at the mist-shrouded fields and climb the same dizzying stairs to emerge to a sun-bathed cityscape' This was the tower!

Bath - Beckford's Tower

A gloomy day not showing the stonework at its best but the gilding on the octagonal lantern at the top, modelled on the Choragic Monument of Lysicrates, was positively shining.
