Belton House - Part 4: The Church 4/7

I particularly liked the pulpit in the church of St.Peter and St.Paul at Belton House, and in the background to the left is the an Alabaster bust and monument in memory of Richard Brownlow, who died in 1638, by Joshua Marshall.

The pulpit seems to have an upper balcony...for gawd, I suppose, if she happens to visit any time.
Brian Walbey: I saw two pulpits whilst in Yorkshire in May that had three different levels for the minister to preach from, quite unusual.
nice use of the wide angle lens to capture this view. i wonder if people those days would have foreseen that their creations would survive all these centuries and be appreciated
Brian Walbey: There are lots of people who are glad places like this have survived Ayush and are still being used for worship and being looked after. A few centuries ago our King Henry VIII set in motion what we call the "Dissolution of the Monasteries" when loads of churches etc.were badly damaged, you might find it interesting to Google it and find out more.
This is a superb composition Brian....you have captured so many different shades in the lighting....i like it....it is nice to be able to visit again after the problems that i have been having with the SC updatesmile....petersmile
BTW.... why does this church need two saints in its name....smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter. I don't know why the double-barrelled saintly dedication but it is not unusual. Re the update I gather several folk have had problems, so far I haven't, but I don't need to Upload or change anything at the moment. As for the thumbnail layout, I prefer a small background border round each and I have to wait each time I look at them while the whole set re-paint themselves. The old saying "If it works" comes to mind!

There's a huge amount of detail & interest here Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed Chris, wait till tomorrow's posting though before saying anything else.
I really like this church series
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal.
A nice little series on Belton House Brian, plenty to look at there.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed, thanks Les.

Taking each object here and then thinking about the skills required at the time to make these just shows the wealth of talent and skill we had then.
Brian Walbey: Yes we did Alan, I often wonder if such things could be produced these days when you look at some of the tat that ends up in the National gallery and such places.

Great wood craft on show Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed there is vintage.
Not only marvellous detail everywhere you look, Brian, but the thing that strikes me is the wonderful sheen that all the wood gives off. I can almost smell the furniture polish. Ginnie had posted a picture a while back showing a neglected & very dusty church interior. This is in direct contrast.
Brian Walbey: I know what you mean Beverly, I was surprised that the church Ginnie showed was in such an unclean state.

Ah yes, good to have a better look at the fine pulpit.
Brian Walbey: It is a nice one isn't it.
Nice richness to the wood and deep red colours.
Brian Walbey: Yes there is, it really caught my eye.

Just this little glimpse of the church gives so much detail, very rich looking with all the red smile
Brian Walbey: It is a great church for what is in it Linda.
It is a very fine pulpit Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes it really caught my eye Bill.
They've got some pretty ornate woodwork there!
Brian Walbey: That's what first caught my eye with this pulpit Tom.
Plenty of nice details in this shot.
Brian Walbey: Thanks John.
