A Trip To Notorious Verulamium

St Albans is one of those places I seem to have been a number of times, but not actually seen any of.

As I was heading up that way for the Notorious contra, it seemed a good excuse to rectify this. I managed to enlist morganmuffle to show me around and she took me on a tour of the car park (it must have been good as we went around twice).

In no particular order there was:


  • 6 pots of tea (well, I said "in no particular order", but these clearly are most important and must come first)

  • waffles and pasta (not together)

  • earspoons and keyrings (both of which clearly need to be reintroduced into society, although I'd imagine that later might actually sell better)

  • lots of mosiac floors (I'm sure the Verulamiumish people must have just spent their whole lives sticking little pieces of tile to the ground)

  • dead people (there were plenty of alive ones in St Albans too, but they weren't on display in the museum).

  • flagons and dragons and bears, oh my! (ok, I'm fairly certain there were flagons and I know there was a dragon, but I don't actually remember seeing any bears)

  • the ruins of a theatre and a cinema (I have a feeling it wasn't a roman cinema though)

  • a really exciting road junction with pedestrian crossings going diagonally across it (we need these in London, although preferably with the green and red men the other side of the road for the benefit of those of us without eyes in our elbows)

  • and a partridge in a pear tree (well, ok, not actually one of those, but there were Christmas carols!)



As for the contra, it was fun, but notorious seemed a little tame and sedate for my liking. Not sure I'll be rushing to see them again in a hurry.

I've also had an idea: They should run a railway from St. Pancras south of the river to places like London Bridge and Elephant. It would link the two sides of the Thames and would have been very useful. I wonder what it should be called?
