Grasmere Church 2/5

The 13th. century nave holds several memorials, including several to the Le Fleming family of Rydal Hall, but the one most people come to see is that of William Wordsworth. The North aisle, almost as big as the nave, was added in 1490 for the residents of Langdale. The East window is clear and gives superb views of the fells beyond.

Today we celebrate our 47th.wedding anniversary, it will be the same celebration for Bill and Ange later in the year.

Happy Happy Anniversary! Congratulations!
Lovely shot to celebrate!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth. We haven't got off to a good start today, apparently our (surrogate) Grandson was rushed into hospital overnight with suspected Appendicitis, we are waiting to hear how things are going.

It looks as pleasantly simple inside as out, Brian
Brian Walbey: I really enjoyed this little church, sometimes they can be just as nice to visit as big cathedrals. We went in a simple village church at Grindleford in the Peak District two weeks ago and it really took my breath away when we walked through the main door, I hop3 i've captured that for the pictures I will post here in time to come.
A plain and simple interior Brian

Happy anniversary. As you say ours is in November!

Congratulations to you both Brian, brilliant that you are part of the long marriage club. Norma and I celebrate our 49th later this year.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chad. We haven't got off to a good start today, apparently our (surrogate) Grandson was rushed into hospital overnight with suspected Appendicitis, we are waiting to hear how things are going.

Congratulations!! This looks so serene! Lovely.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bonnie. I really enjoyed this little church, sometimes they can be just as nice to visit as big cathedrals.
I'm always astonished at how old the churches in England are, Brian, and how are kept in such good condition. Congratulations on your 47th. wedding anniversary. We celebrated our 49th. in March. Hope your surrogate grandson is feeling much better today.
Brian Walbey: Some of our churches, or at least parts of them, date back many centuries. Ginnie often remarks that you have very little, if anything, as old on the USA/Canada continent. It looks as if our Cameron will be having an operation on his Appendix according to his Mum who is at the hospital with him, at least she can stay with him, although he is 16 he is in a childrens ward and they have facilities for parents.

a fitting image to celebrate your wedding anniversary! My best wishes for your grandson (I myself had an appendicitis operation as young person; it is better to remove a bad appendicitis).
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine. Our Cameron had an Appendix operation late yesterday afternoon, they used a 'keyhole' method, which I believe is the modern way of doing it.

i quite like this simple looking church, Brian. i would have expected the windows to have some stained glass work. congratulations on this fabulous milestone!
Brian Walbey: It being in a small village when it was built I guess the people couldn't afford stained glass.

Lots of interest here but although I can understand why areas are roped off, I would feel disappointed that I could not get loser to some areas.

Happy anniversary for yesterday; I hope you celebrated it in style.
Brian Walbey: I was surprised about parts of the chancel being roped off, I can't understand why. WE had a nice meal out last night but you might have read in my earlier replies to people that our (surrogate) Grandson was rushed into hospital yesterday and ended up having his Appendix out late yesterday afternoon.
