Building blocks of History 26th July

Things happen every day, big and small. Together they make our family history, our local history, our country’s history and sometimes they become part of global history.

All of these things happened on 26th July in years gone by.


In 1469 the Battle of Edgecote Moor was fought during the Wars of the Roses.

In 1745 the first recorded women’s cricket match took place near Guildford.

In 1803 the Surrey Iron Railway opened.

In 2016 we visited Canterbury Cathedral.

In the shadow of

medieval travellers,

honour the martyr.

Welcome to Haiga Heaven Weekly Challenge!

Regular visitors know, I love Haigas.

Traditionally, Japanese Haigas are a complimentary combination of a haiku and simple painting. Modern Haiga writers embrace a range of visual media including photography and graphics.

Join me, having fun, creating new Haigas, using your favourite medium.

If you want to join in,  you’ll find a new prompt to inspire your  Haiga  every Sunday.  Add a link in the comments box to share your Haiga.

I look forward to seeing your take on this week prompt – Timeless.


Mystic isle hidden
in timeless mists, protecting
the king awaiting

our hour of greatest danger
to reclaim his rightful place.
