St. Johns Chapel, York Minster.

The King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry   (click image for more information)


Several regimental chapels are found in the Minster. On the edge of the North transept sits The St. John's KOYLI Regimental chapel, dedicated to the King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry (hence the acronym KOYLI) dedicated in 1926.  The regiment went out of existence in 1968 but its chapel lives on, with the names of its famous battles displayed on the screen that separates the chapel from the North transept aisle just to its east.

St. Johns Chapel The King's Own Yorkshire Light Infantry (KOYLI) was a regiment of the British Army. It officially existed from 1881 to 1968, but its predecessors go back to 1755. The regiment's traditions and history are now maintained by The Rifles.

This chapel was dedicated in 1926 as a regimental memorial chapel for the Kings Own Yorkshire Light Infantry. Rolls of honour are kept in an oak cupboard to the left of the entrance to the chapel.

It was in this chapel that the Archbishop of York, the Most Rev'd and Rt Honourable Dr John Sentamu spent a week fasting and praying during his Prayer Vigil for the Middle East in August 2006.


Cap badge

The badge of the KOYLI Can be seen in the Stained Glass Wiodow of this chapel and is unique amongst English light infantry regiments as the horn is of the 'French' type (with a twist). The origins of this are obscure. It appears to have been adopted after Waterloo, however prior to this the 105th had an 'English' style Bugle horn with a loop. In its centre is the White Rose of York, linking to the regiment's home in Yorkshire. Unusual amongst British Army regiments, the badge lacks a crown. It was also the smallest cap badge used in the British Army.

Osborne House Isle of Wight

Osborne House is a former royal residence in East Cowes, Isle of Wight, UK. The house was built between 1845 and 1851 for

Queen Victoria and Prince Albert as a summer home and rural retreat.

Prince Albert designed the house himself in the style of an Italian Renaissance palazzo.

The builder was Thomas Cubitt, the London architect and builder whose company built the main façade of Buckingham Palace

 for the royal couple in 1847.

An earlier smaller house on the site was demolished to make way for a new and far larger house.

Following Queen Victoria's death, the house became surplus to royal requirements and was given to the state with a few rooms retained as a

private royal museum dedicated to Queen Victoria.

From 1903 until 1921 it was used as a junior officer training college for the Royal Navy known as the Royal Naval College, Osborne.

 Today it is fully open to the public.

    Rochester Castle


Rochester Castle stands on the east bank of the River Medway, in Rochester, Kent.

It is one of the best-preserved castles of its kind in the UK.

There has been a fortification on this site since Roman times (c AD43), though it is the keep of 1127

 and the Norman castle which can be seen today. With the invention of gunpowder

 other types of defence became more appropriate, and the military centre of the Medway Towns moved to Chatham.

Castle Howard

(South Profile 2)




Castle Howard is a stately home in North Yorkshire, England, 15 miles (24 km) north of York.

One of the grandest private residences in Britain, most of it was built between 1699 and 1712 for the 3rd Earl of Carlisle,

 to a design by Sir John Vanbrugh. Although Castle Howard was build near the site of the ruined Henderskelfe Castle,

 it is not a true castle, but this term is often used for English country houses constructed after the castle-building era (c.1500)

 and not intended for a military function.

Castle Howard has been the home of part of the Howard family for more than 300 years.

It is familiar to television and movie audiences as the fictional "Brideshead", both in Granada Television's 1981

adaptation of Evelyn Waugh's   "Brideshead Revisited"  and a two-hour 2008 remake for cinema. Today, it is part of the Treasure Houses of England heritage group.

The house is surrounded by a large estate which, at the time of the 7th Earl of Carlisle,

covered over 13,000 acres (5,300 ha) and included the villages of Welburn, Bulmer, Slingsby, Terrington

 and Coneysthorpe. The estate was served by its own railway station, Castle Howard, from 1845 to the 1950s.

Castlefield Manchester.



Castlefield is a former rundown area of Manchester bordering on the city of Salford. It is now a much developed and up to date residential area, comprising of modern developments and  apartments.

Some of these chic apartment buildings have balconies or a frontage to the different waterways that verge together at and around the scenic CastlefieldBasin.

 Its a popular area with the younger set of Manchesters clubers with several bars bistros and clubs that scatter the area.

It continues into Salford and eventually navigates into the once busy ManchesterShipCanal with two way traffic to and from Salford Quays and the old Manchester docks at TraffordWharf.

Saford Quays is now a swish residential area with its own up-market retail outlet, theatre and ArtGallery. Its main claim to fame is of course its famous son the artist LS Lowry where much of the Quays is named after.


The river Medlock, the Rochdale canal and the Bridgewater canal all meet at Castlefield and in days of old it was a busy, if not grubby, 

place of commerce comprising of many different quays where boats and canal barges unloaded their various goods destined for the shops and markets of the busy city of Manchester.

It was allowed to run down but has seen a massive revamp of urban development.

The canal leisure market is prolific in the Castlefield area and holds a canal festival every year where many different craft meet up.

The basin gives easy access to Deansgate and The Museum of Science and Industry on Liverpool Road  which backs onto Granada Studios and the busy area of Quay Street and the rest of Manchester city centre

Sids Cafe in Holmfirth Yorkshire ...Last of the Summer Wine

The Cafe


(1973–2010) joint owner of tea-shop with husband Sid, with whom she would often have blazing rows in the kitchen, until his death.

She now runs it solely, and viciously scolds anyone who dares misbehave or criticise the food.

 Generally the wisest and most level-headed of the show's female social circle,

she was also on occasion a target of Compo's (unwanted) affection, who often said that if it wasn't for Nora Batty,

he'd be all over her. When taking into account Kathy Staff's brief exit from the show in 2001 and later absence from series 30 to series 31. 

Jane Freeman as Ivy is the only character other than Clegg (Peter Sallis) to have been present throughout the course of the series

(although Clegg is the only one to have appeared in every single episode),

however she was not present in the final episode of the series.
