Visiting Denbigh Library

Denbigh is a medieval town, high on a hill

with its own stock

and cross where people used to stand to be hired, and butchers sharpened their knives.

The library, where I gave my talk to the Denbigh Reading Group (a large one, of over 20 people) yesterday, was once the town hall.

I was a little early so I walked on: up another steep hill

to the medieval town wall

with views of a bright sky and Clwydian hills.

Then up again, past the Earl of Leicester's thwarted ambitions for a sixteenth century cathedral

to the castle.

I've been to Denbigh library to give talks before and there is always a warm welcome with cakes, and everyone clutching a copy of my book - because Denbighshire Libraries have bought a reading group set. So thank you Denbighshire Libraries!

I always love your walks about a town.

And how lovely to buy a set for reading groups!

Yes, great, isn't it? I was very pleased it.
