A classic here, Brian. Wonderful stones used for this church.
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely little church and built from that stone I guess it would stand for a very long time.

Despite the rustic quality of the stonework Brian, this is a pleasing little church.
Brian Walbey: It is a deligthful village church martine, they don't come much better than this. Oops, I copied my reply to Martine, sorry Chad.

Built with this stone, it is very difficult to see if it is Victorian or medieval, so thank you for dating it, Brian
Brian Walbey: Beautiful stone isn't it, I guess it would stand for a very long time.

A sturdy design by Matson. Makes a great picture.
Brian Walbey: Beautiful isn't it, I guess it would stand for a very long time. Thanks Louis.
It looks all of a piece, in spite of the additions.
Brian Walbey: I thought it is a fine little church, and right in the village centre.
it might be weathered but is still immovable, Brian. is that a flagpole up there?
Brian Walbey: A very solid lookign church isn't it. Yes that is a flagpole, most churches have them to hang our national flags from on appropriate occasions.

So all still quite new then? wink A solid-looking structure.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a solid looking building and comparatively new compared with most churches.
Between a church and a castle. I like it
Brian Walbey: I guess it is with the castelated tower top.
