Part 1: Orford
Sometimes I go out for a drive to new places and take a figure out with me for some photographs. This time the destination was a little town called Orford. It's a small, quiet place in England. Enlarge the pictures if you want to take a closer look at anything.
In the center of the town there's a church. Part of it has fallen away over the years, and a little ruined section remains at the end.
Here's our first sighting of Saber.
This tiny little town is known for something else though; it's castle. Orford castle has quite a unique design.
We'll take a look inside!

This photo was taken in the lowest underground level, where the well is.
Orford Castle actually has a mysterious legend associated with it -
' According to the chronicler Ralph of Coggeshall, a naked wild man, covered in hair, was caught in the nets of local fishermen around 1167. The man was brought back to the castle where he was held for six months, being questioned or tortured; he said nothing, and behaved in a feral fashion throughout. The wild man eventually escaped from the castle.'
A little way out from the town on the way home I spotted another set of ruins. These ones were much larger. They were once an Abbey, long ago.
I like how the next picture turned out.
The altar is all that remains.
