photoblog image Herringfleet Church 5/5

Herringfleet Church 5/5

Moving on from Somerleyton and its hall, gardens and church, nearby is the small village of Herringfleet and this delightful, and very old church.

 

To finish off this look at St.Margarets Chruch, Herringfleet, here is a view from the gallery at the rear of the church.

 

As I said yesterday it is very simple in design, indeed it has a real country feel to it perhaps spoilt a bit by those awful electric heaters hanging down from above.

 

Once again I will remind you more pictures and details are available here

 

Also Tom wanted to see Wednesday's image in B&W.so this is it

 

Next week I will take a break from this longish Suffolk series for something more light hearted and return once again to Suffolk the week after.

Something must have happened here once Brian judging from all those plaques
Brian Walbey: I should have spent more time reading the plaques Chris but we on the way to somewhere else.
I agree with the heaters comments Brian. This little church must have lots of history on those surrounding walls. The b/w version is very good like it.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Scotia.

I know those heaters look like an eyesore to you, Brian, but we would never see such a thing in the States, so they're most educational...as is this wonderful, cozy, quaint, soulful church. I love the majesty of the huge cathedrals but I'd want to worship in a little chapel like this.
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely church Ginnie, I would like to attend a service in it and take my old choir there to fill it full of wonderful music.

An attractive building, Brian. I like it a lot.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray, we did as well.
Very simple, very nice, and lovely window. Was it a steep climb up to the organ gallery?
Brian Walbey: Yes the steps were quite steep Sheila, I had to hang on quite tightly to the handrail and my camera.
Simply beautiful Brian. I love the atmosphere!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.
Another great look at an old country churce Brian. I am enjoying all of them.
Brian Walbey: I'm so glad Shaun, next week will be a completely different sort of image.
the high angle is great
Brian Walbey: I thought that also Cheryl.
A nice one to finish this series Brian. I expect the electric heaters are an attempt to keep the damp at bay!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Bill. There didn't seem to be any other form of heating other than these somewhat incongrues heaters.
A great shot Brian, lovely angle.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tim.
another good interior shot, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
It might need repair, but it does have a cosy feel about it. smile
Brian Walbey: It does indeed Linda, I would like to attend a service and see it alive.
From the vicar's eye view
Brian Walbey: Or the organists Richard.
Good to see that this is open, health and safety and all that.
Brian Walbey: It would be a shame if it closed Chad although quite a few east Anglian churches have closed.
A-ha, were you taking the sermon smile Good vantage point.
Brian Walbey: It is a good vantage point John, but no sermons that day fortunately.
Now, that's a more unusual angle Brian. Very nice it is too
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Pamela.

Yes, I like this little old church - the electric heaters (yesterday I thought of lamps) are necessary but a pain for the eyes, the aesthetical sense!
Brian Walbey: Yes the heaters are an eyesore but I suppose they are more efficient up there than if they were at ground level somewhere.

I was in a little church today and I was thinking of your fine church photography; mine is not up to your standard. Yes, it;s a shame about the heaters but I guess the congregation don't want to get cold. I'm sure from lower down they would be less obvious.
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your kind remark about my church photos Alan, it is a subject I enjoy. I suspect if the heaters were at ground level they might not bee too efficient.
I`m really enjoying this series, but no reason why you can`t take a break from it and re-visit later. I like this little church, even if it has seen better days. (:o)
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely little church Rosalyn, everyone seems to have enjoyed having a peek at it this week. I just hope you all enjoy next weeks offerings as much during my break from Suffolk.
