Rydal Church 3/7

Inside St. Mary’s Church there are many memorials and plaques to people with local connections. The four stained glass windows are memorials, and are worth studying. One of the South windows is by Henry Holiday (1891), and commemorates the two Quillinan step-daughters of Dora Wordsworth.

Somehow I never thought of Wordsworth being married, but here his daughter is commemorated
Brian Walbey: I knew he was married because I saw his and his wifes gravestone in Grasmere churchyard.
Plain and simple, Brian...the way my dad would have liked it.
Brian Walbey: I don't think I've ever seen an ostentatious Baptist church, they are more about what is said than what can be seen aren't they.

Sometimes black and white produces a calmer image Brian.
Brian Walbey: My colour shots of this church wheren't all that good so I decided to do the series in B.& W.for the inside shots.

All very interesting isn't it
Brian Walbey: It has quite a lot of history for a small village church.

A nice and sober decorated church, Brian. Love the B&W here.

The Wordsworth connection must make this a much visited church Brian
Brian Walbey: Indeed it does Bill, his house/cottage is only five minutes up the road if time allows both can be visited in only a short time.

Since I didn't know who Quillinan was, I read up. Quite an history of his own. Wiki says he is also buried in Grasmere.

Those grates - got something to do with the heating of the church?
Brian Walbey: Grasmere is only a short distance up the road from this church. As you will see on Thursday the church is built on solid rock and no burials can take place there so they go to grasmere I guess.

I especially like the candles in the floor by the altar Not heard of Quillinan before.
Brian Walbey: I'd not heard of Quillinan either. The candles were left there after some sort of special service but I can't remember what it was.
Nice soft treatment, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
Oh this looks so lovely - and simple in B&W!
Brian Walbey: My colour shots of this church weren't all that good so I decided to do the series in B.& W.for the inside shots. You will have been past this church a few times, it is just down the road from where you and Frank stayed I think.
