Canterbury, England

During a wander through the walled town of Canterbury in 2009 (during a 6-week return visit to the UK with close friends) I took this shot. Only today did I notice the plaque in the bottom right hand corner of the shot (!)  It refers to the "Piran Declaration", which piqued my interest.........

European Walled Towns (then called the Walled Towns Friendship Circle , WTFC) was founded in Tenby (South Wales) in 1989. It is an International Forum to promote the many mutual interests shared by walled towns in Europe. The reason for the need to maintain the historic walled towns was expressed at an Annual General Meeting in Piran in 1998 and hence is called The Piran Declaration, which states:

"Walled Towns are unique inheritances from times long past and should be treasured, maintained and safeguarded from neglect, damage and destruction and passed on into perpetuity as irreplaceable ‘Timestones of History’."

(Bravo!)

At the moment the EWT has a hundred walled town members in more than 20 countries. In addition ten organisation involved with walled towns and twenty five individuals are associate members.

Walled cities are so special I'm really glad to hear there is an organisation to try and protect and maintain their heritage.

Hi there - I think is strange how we can look at the same thing a dozen times, and only on the 13th do we see what’s there. Makes me wonder how much we miss.

Cheers - Stewart M
