Northampton

It was lovely to be going back to Northampton again - and also lovely to see all of Tim's family again. Here we all are, out for Sunday lunch!
We visited All Saints Church in the town centre, where I took this picture, looking up through a chandelier in to the dome.

I also lit a candle for Craig.

Francis Crick was a molecular biologist, biophysicist, and neuroscientist from Northampton, and most noted for being a co-discoverer of the double-helix structure of the DNA molecule in 1953. This beautiful sculpture commemorates this.

Close-up. I really love this!

The old disused lift-testing tower, affectionately knows as the Northampton Lighthouse. It's very, very tall and one of my favourite buildings there. It's now listed, so can't be demolished! Good. :-)

Walking in the July sunshine.

It seems to have rained for almost the whole summer here in the UK and Northampton's River Nene was very swollen.

Looking out from the Guildhall.

It was a great weekend! :-)

The double helix statue is one of my favourite statues of all time - it just flows organically.
