Rydal Church 1/7

The church of St Mary, Rydal, was built by Lady le Fleming, of Rydal Hall in 1824. William Wordsworth helped to choose the site, which was originally an orchard. The gallery in the church was reserved for the private use of the le Fleming family.

Très joli décor pour cette église.
Brian Walbey: Small but interesting looking.
I like this point of view. It's lovely and green!
Brian Walbey: There are only a couple of decent points of view for this church, this being the better of the two. Once again just up the road from where you and Frank stayed.

Brian, I think you picked a wonderful point of view here. Love all the green around the church.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Astrid, there are only a couple of decent points of view for this church, this being the better of the two.

I didn't know Wordsworth helped choose the site
Brian Walbey: His cottage was just up the road.
I guess when you have the money, Brian, you get to decide how you want to spend it?!
Brian Walbey: Very much so I guess Ginnie.

It has a neat and compact look to it Brian.
Brian Walbey: Small but interesting looking.
Shame about the fruit trees Brian grin
Brian Walbey: Perhaps they were likening the Apple trees to the Garden of Eden smile

What a lovely place to build a Church - in an orchard

A lovely point of view and even a bench to lure the tired of feet to lower their bottoms.
Brian Walbey: There are only a couple of decent points of view for this church, this being the better of the two. It is quite a short, but steep, climb up to the church.
A lovely green & lush setting, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Being in our Lake District there is a lot of rain so everyhwere is full of fresh growth like this.

A delightful setting . It is on one of my favourite walks in the Lakes - a loop of Rydalwater and Grasmere part of which uses the coffin road
Brian Walbey: I remember you told me about that walk before.
Attractive Church in a nice setting
Brian Walbey: Just off the main road from Ambleside to keswick.
Flint stone or similar and quite attractive.
Brian Walbey: I'm not sure what the stone is but it is a nice little church.

I like the leading green line and the balanced bush on the right....really draws the eye right into the bldg. Lovely.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bonnie, I always try to make my composition work, in this case as well the bush is hiding a family sitting on a bench who I didn't want in the picture smile
Is the white balance like this intentional, or from the camera??
Brian Walbey: I usually just have my cameras on Auto White Balance, to be honest though the sky is a bit burned out!!!
