An abundance of good nuggets! All, thank you once again.

Annhig: why can't we be in two places at once? Would love to hear the Britten.

EYW&BTV - I frequently want to be in two places at once but it's a trick I've yet to perfect. I'm sure that the Brahms and Faure will be delightful and even I would have to confess that Well's ancient Cathedral [and the Bishop's Palace with its moat, garden and swans] is simply more beautiful than Truro's victorian equivalent.

No! Leicester is the Curry capital....or is the Bradford?

but there are so many towns in UK now that can claim their own distinctive type of "curry".
(they claim the Tikka Masala was invented in Glasgow.)

but it is beyond doubt that the "Balti" curry was invented in Brum.

OK, Balti is now on the must-do list along with improbable art at the Tate Modern and Vaughan Williams in Wells Cathedral.

But is Wells in the six most beautiful cathedrals in Britain according to the Dily Mile?

BTW -- it doesn't actually say THE six most beautiful . . . it just says Six of the best.

by definition my statement would imply that it is as I'm saying of ALL the buildings in England it isa one of the most beautiful.
