This is a gargoyle on the ancient water tower in the grounds of Durham Cathedral. It is situated in the College precinct between the Chorister School and the former Cathedral Kitchen.
The Bishopric of Durham dates from 995, with the present cathedral being founded in AD 1093. The cathedral is regarded as one of the finest examples of Norman architecture and has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site along with nearby Durham Castle, which faces it across Palace Green.
Have a question about Scrum or agile practice in general? I hang out in the Scrum Forum. Post a query there and I'll help if I can:
For the low-down on many topical issues, you can see Agile Tom, the Scrum Shack's resident cat.
I'm Chief Scientist at proAgile Ltd. You could pretty much say that software engineering methodologies are my bag.
I specialise in Agile Methods such as DSDM & Scrum, as well as Lean Kanban. I tweet and blog quite actively about this, Agile Transformations, and Agile-PRINCE2 alignment.
Hobbywise, I'm into Extreme Ironing. I've ironed underneath the ice-sheet of a frozen lake, and I've also gifted the world with the "fusion" sport of bog snorkelling + extreme ironing.
I do quite a bit of scuba diving in lakes and rivers, mainly in pursuit of antique bottles.
Cave diving is another interest, and I have traversed White Lady sump in the Dan-yr-Ogof system while training under the redoubtable Martyn Farr.
Of course, I have plumbed even murkier depths on public sector IT projects. This latter experience once lead to an outburst of Vogon Poetry; you can commiserate by reading it here.
