Church Visits - 2009 7/15

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.

When my friend and I visited this church last year we were really surprised at what a lovely building it is, particularly the soaring spire of the steeple.  Unfortunately there was several contractors vehicles parked right outside the main door so I didn't get any shots from that angle.  A good view of the church and lots of interesting information can be found here

Now that I've met you, Brian, I can totally picture you doing your thing! And I can see Maureen watching you do it. smile
Brian Walbey: I just like churches Ginnie, even if I was an atheist I would still like them, in fact I know several people who match both descriptions.

It looks a large building indeed Brian. I wonder who St Wulfram was?
Brian Walbey: It is a big building Chris. Re St.Wulfram the bit about his death here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wulfram_of_Sens explains all.
Another nice set of images, Brian
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Tom.
Back to staeliness and granduer again, even in a parish church. Very nice.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sheila, I was surprised how big this church is for a modest market town.
This one is big inside, quite grand smile
Brian Walbey: It came a squite a surprise to me Linda, but it is very nice.
This one is quite big isn't it. I like the lower right image
Brian Walbey: Quite big Janet and that altar screen is lovely.
Really nice Spire on this one.
Impressive..
Brian Walbey: Thanks Rob, I just wish the blxxxy vehicles hadn't been in the way for a better shot at that angle.
They are amazing buildings..Some small some large..but interesting..My first job as a lad was tuning or rebuilding the organs..so spent a couple of years at it.
A classy collage once again Brian.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Ron. We could have done with an organ mechanic at or Baptist Church recently, as it is the organ has now been taken out apart from the pipes on show at the front.
