Poultry Cross

This is the only surviving one of 4 market crosses in Salisbury. It dates originally back to the 14th Century but was refurbished I think in the 18th Century.  It is a grade 1 listed building, just like Chris Phillips

Well that's cool!
Bill Phillips: England is a coo, place E. We have a great history but probably not much of a future grin

Chris Phillips isn't graded he's greying
Bill Phillips: He is not alone in that comrade

When have I ever been cruel or personal about you on my blog??

I like Salisbury, especially the market: I might go there next week

Chad's son lives there

I fell in love with all things Southern there circa 1962
Bill Phillips: I haven't the time to list them

So do I it is a very pleasant place

I fell in love with a southerner in 1968

Oh, I saw some market crosses - but not in Salisbury - I love Salisbury and I hope to see it again in June - your last sentence gave me a fine morning laugh!
Bill Phillips: smile It was a bit mean of me I suppose, but I couldn't resist

Market day when we were there, so this was obliterated in tat. Nice to see it how it should look. I have some work on show in the art centre there at the mo.
Bill Phillips: You should put on an exhibition in Droitwich. We like a bit of culture up 'ere
Butcher Row and Poultry Cross must have been a gruesome place at one time. Looks lovely now.
Bill Phillips: I don't suppose the hygiene levels were all that high!
Another place doomed after you pay a visit.house prices have crumbled,unemployment went through the roof.
Bill Phillips: I shudder to think what will happen to Teignmouth if you ever move there.
A fine building, good that is well maintained and protected for the future
Bill Phillips: Handsome isn't it?
un endroit sympathique ,beau dimanche
Bill Phillips: Thank you for your comment

Good that they didn't whack it with a wrecker's ball too, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Pity they whacked the others though Ray
A remarkable object...
Bill Phillips: It is indeed Larry

I've not been to the centre of Salisbury for years... I must rectify that. I've never been to the Cathedral.
Bill Phillips: The cathedral is a must young Alan

ADDITIONAL SPECIAL EXTRA COMMENT
I think Mr Rolfe aught to be made to climb to the top of the spire dressed in a spangled onsie as penance for this heinous omission..
Bill Phillips: That seems fair
Did he get the taxi, Bill?
Bill Phillips: It was a bus and it ran him over....I missed the shot!
This is a remarkable building well looked after Bill!
Bill Phillips: It looks like it is off a church
Very interesting structure.
Bill Phillips: It is indeed Hollie.
Market stalls were so much more tasteful in those days.
Bill Phillips: Very true Graeme. Prices were lower too
I've only ever paid one visit to Salisbury and don't remember this, but unlike A.Rolfe I did go to the cathedral although being Sunday time inside was limited because of services. There is something like this in Chichester if I recall.
