Rydal Church 7/7

 When Rydal Chapel became a Parish Church with its own Vicar, the new foundation took a large slice out of the old parish (Grasmere), though customary dues and tithes continued to be paid to the Rector of Grasmere until 1870. Rydal continued with its own Vicar until 1943 when the benefice was combined with Ambleside. The separate benefice of Rydal was re-established in 1963 when Rydal Hall became the Carlisle Diocesan Conference and Retreat House with the new Priest-in-Charge of Rydal Church being also Warden of Rydal Hall. The arrangement continued until 2003 when the Diocese appointed a general manager at Rydal Hall. A Vicar was again appointed for Rydal Church, who also serves as Chaplain of Rydal Hall and Rector of Grasmere.

Solid chairs and a twiddly candle holder
Brian Walbey: I thought it was a nice arrangement for a photo although perhaps, as I was there on my own, I should have briefly moved the flowers out of the picture.
Nice corner Brian
Brian Walbey: THanks Bill. I thought it was a nice arrangement for a photo although perhaps, as I was there on my own, I should have briefly moved the flowers out of the picture.
I like this done in B/W a lot.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary. This whole series, apart from a couple of shots, has made me think that some church pictures come over quite well in B.& W.
I wonder who gets the privilege of sitting in those two chairs, Brian.
Brian Walbey: They were behind the altar immediately below the east window so perhaps the clergy sit there whilst somebody else is doing something in the service.

I like the composition here with the mosaic on the floor,. the candle holder and the chairs.
Brian Walbey: The candleholder and the floor in particular I found very photogenic.
Again good in B&W.
