Northern Soul

Although I no longer live in my home town and haven't done so for over 20 years, I always enjoy visiting our nearby city.  There was a time in the 80s when it was in the news frequently for all the wrong reasons.  Now, in the 21st Century, it's making headlines for the right reasons ~ it's been a European City of Culture, part of it has been listed as a World Heritage Site and today I learned that a particularly famous landmark actually came into being in 1671.  
1671.  Hard to imagine.
