Church Visits - 2009 5/15

During 2009 I visited 15 churches and featured some of them occasionally on SC. in part.  This series will cover all of them, and for this series you will see that I have used a common theme of layout and presentation for each, which I hope you will enjoy, together with a short piece of sacred music that I hope you will find time to enjoy also.

This church is only a few miles away from home and I was amazed when we went in to find those great big columns and Norman style arches in the centre section of the church.  Once again this church has a long history, and you may need time to read it all here

All being well we shall be meeting some of you in Stratford tomorrow lunchtime, we are looking forward to that very much.

A fine collection of pictures showing this very old Norman style church! I wonder about the double name "St. Michael with St. Mary", but later I'll read the information- link. I very like this series about churches that truely deserve our attention, and I hope that these churches are still working!
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Philine, I hope you continue to enjoy the rest of the series. WE met Ginnie, Astrid and lots more Shutterchancers at Stratford Upon Avon today and had a great afternoon.
I wonder just how many churches have featured on Shutterchance over the years, Looks good Brian.

I had a call from Mike Shaw earlier saying that the RSC has boards all around it so suggested meeting at the Swan fountain in the gardens by the theatre. With a following wind should see you tomorrow.
Brian Walbey: Churches seem to be a popular subject les, certainly they are one of mine. It was great to me you today, hopefully it won't be the only time.
Sweet.
Love these montages of places I'd love to visit.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rob, perhaps a visit to the U.K.is called for you and Sao.
A Very "Castle" like architecture this one. Interesting. Nice as usual
Brian Walbey: I was really surprised at the inside of this church Rob, those great big columns.
