Glevum or Colonia Nerviana Glevensiis was a Fort in Roman Britain and in AD79 it became a “Colonia” for retired legionaries. This is the fine statue of the Emperor Nerva in Southgate Street.
There are many interesting inns around the city and one of the oldest is The New Inn which was opened by Saint Peters Abbey in 1450 for visiting Pilgrims. Today the inner courtyard looked charming with its vibrant floral displays.
This ancient clock above Bakers Jewellers in Southgate Street is still in good working order. It depicts the central figure of Old Father Time flanked by Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales figures in their traditional costumes. There is also a more modern Beatrix Potter Tailor of Gloucester Clock in the Eastgate Market Place.
I spied a Ten Bob Note basking in the sunshine in the main basin.
