The view above is of Alison Ludlow's mural in the centre of Abergavenny. The artwork has been in place since 2000 and depicts the modern day town in the majority of the space, Alison has used the former window spaces well to depict specific moments in the history of the town, on the right 1100 when the town castle was being completed by the victorious Normans following William the Conqueror's taking over the country in 1066. While on the left a window is opened into 17th Century Abergavenny in 1665 at the time of reign of Charles II following Parliamentarian unrest and civil war- many of the building depicted still exist in the town today.
The second image I couldn't resist is of course Jacob helping around Wilkinson's in town this afternoon.
