Euro Heritage Day

I ventured into town today. I don't usually go into town of a Saturday, though it is Euro Heritage weekend and I wished to see a few places.

I went in the trusty two-wheeler and dismounted firstly at Joseph Braddell & Son, North Street, where I bought a good pair of hunting socks.

The intention is to wear them with the wellington boots, because they are very long and ought to stay up! I wear wellies quite often when I'm volunteering with The National Trust. Good value at a tenner.

My next stop was the First Presbyterian Church, Rosemary Street, one of the most elegant ecclesiastical edifices in Belfast. It was built in 1783.

There is a memorial to John Holmes Houston, of Orangefield, County Down.

My final visit was to Freemasons' Hall at Arthur Square, at Cornmarket. Here there is a portrait of one Thomas Valentine JP, of The Moat, Strandtown, Belfast.
