Columns from the Romans

We had a good look around while eating breakfast. And there was LOT to look at! We couldn't help but ask about these very ancient columns in her dining room. She explained that her house sat where a market once stood, back in the 1500's. These columns were part of that market. Her living room floor was the old stone slabs of the market square. There was an abbey that was 'quarried', which meant that King Henry's henchmen dismantled the stone abbey and used these stones to build the buildings in Painswick.
