Weekly Photo Challenge: Quest

I’v been struggling with this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge Quest A long or arduous search for something, in my case a Quest for a nice photo, a Knights Quest ….


Medieval Knight
Start of our Knights Quest – Medieval suit of armour. The word armour was introduced into use in the Middle Ages as a borrowing from the French. It is dated from 1297, as a “mail, defensive covering worn in combat” from Old French armoire, itself derived from the Latin armatura “arms and/or equipment” with the root arma “arms or gear”.

Room of Swords
Quest for some weapons – room full of victorian weapons in the old mansion

Field Of Daffodils
Yup gardens looking good – Field Of Daffodils
The Anchor
A ship, a ship! My Kingdom for a ship! – The anchor outside Conwy Castle north Wales UK. Construction of the castle began in 1283
Conwy Castle Wales
Plant pot looking good – Built between 1283 and 1289 during King Edward I’s second campaign in North Wales. Conwy remains one of the most outstanding achievements of medieval military architecture.
The Path Leadeth Me Home
My quest for a medieval stairlift – Conwy Castle Wales was built between 1283 and 1289 during King Edward I’s second campaign in North Wales. Conwy remains one of the most outstanding achievements of medieval military architecture.
It’s time Sir Knight – The Castle the wonderful garden and the sundial
Quest for a bigger boat – Conwy Castle reflections north Wales UK. Construction of the castle began in 1283
Caernarfon Castle
Re-Quest the sea comes back – Caernarfon Castle is unashamedly muscle-bound and intimidating. Picking a fight with this massive structure would have been a daunting prospect. By throwing his weight around in stone, King Edward I created what is surely one of the most impressive of Wales’s castles. Most castles are happy with round towers, not Caernarfon! Polygonal towers were the order of the day, with the Eagle Tower being the most impressive of these. note the colour-coded stones carefully arranged in bands. The site of this great castle wasn’t chosen by accident. It had previously been the location of a Norman motte and bailey castle and before that a Roman fort stood nearby. The lure of water and easy access to the sea made the banks of the River Seiont an ideal location. Caernarfon Castle is architecturally one of the most impressive of all of the castles in the world.
Dolbadarn Castle
Think our Knight needs something a little more lavish for his quest – Dolbadarn Castle stands on a rocky hill some eighty feet above Llyn Padarn and Llyn Peris in the Llanberis Pass between Caernarfon and Snowdonia. The 13th century Castle is listed as a World Heritage Site.
Victorian kitchen
Fit for a Knights quest – Victorian kitchen and table
Ancient Coffin
End of our Knights Quest – 13th century stone coffin in Gwydir Chapel at St Grwsts Church, Llanrwst, Conwy, north Wales.

  1. Thanks for following my blog Evans. Wales is one of my favourite Countries and fortunately it doesn’t take too long to get into the beautiful Welsh mountains from Manchester so we visit regularly. Conwy being a favourite and lots of happy family memories visiting the castle there. Thanks for sharing these beautiful photographs.

  2. Wow…I was going to say something about that magnificent sword/chandelier thing but then I saw your photo of the field of daffodils. There is nothing sweeter, especially played out against those ancient stone walls. Great shot!
