A nice bit of exercise! My favourite is no 4 the view down St Anne's street; telephoto compression

No.4 my favourite as well...I also like the last one...not seen anything like that decorative use of numbers before.

Those Priory buildings look interesting, I have added them to my list of places to visit when we are free to travel, thanks for sharing the photos.

Like them all, but if I had to pick a favourite, it would be no.1.

A nice set on a lovely day. The one that grabs me the most is the last.

Numbers 4 and 9 stand out for me: wonderful framing, colour and detail

Thanks for all the comments Guys. I don't feel as thought I can stop and re-frame shots quite as long as I would normally - I'm a bit conscious of being too touristy looking! I did bump into a Police officer on my walk through town, she was very friendly whilst finding out if I was local - having already had to advise visitors from an hours drive away that day trips are not really in the spirit of "exercise"
