When you Basically Live in Dark Souls (Part II)

As I mentioned in my previous post, I’m a big fan of the Souls Series of games by Hidetaka Miyazaki. I especially enjoy how the art and level design accurately captures real Medieval European architecture and it’s degradation, it’s fascinating for me to see that come to life through the eyes and talent of a Japanese design team. Anyway, I was out with my sister heading to (rather appropriately for this post) the darkest place in my county, Woodchurch, in Kent. Which is a 3/4 on the Bortle Scale of Darkness

As we were heading there, in the middle of the countryside down a small road, we saw this tower off the road, and stopped the car to go and check it out. It was some full on abandoned medieval ruins and more exciting for me, they were not the touristic kind.

The Place is St. Mary’s Chapel in Little Chart, Kent, England. Built in 1200AD and then 740 years later destroyed by a V-1 flying bomb, also known as a ‘Doodlebug’ or Buzz Bomb… Check out the photos.

Firelink Shrine anyone? 😉
