photoblog image St.George's Church and Priory, Dunster 6/7

St.George's Church and Priory, Dunster 6/7

In one corner of the church is this fine font which dates from c 1530. The carvings on the font represent the five wounds of Christ and the instruments of the passion. The cover of the font dates from the 1850’s. There are also two fine windows either side of the font.

We are away In Norfolk for a few days, will play "catch-up" when we get back.

Interesting little nook, Brian, but I feel the font would look better if it had fresh flowers rather than a wooden cage on top.
Brian Walbey: Those tops are a tradition of some sort I believe Ray, but I also would prefer to see a nice arrangement of fresh flowers.
Beautiful stained glass here!
Brian Walbey: Yes the whole church was good for that.
A small congregation I pressume
Brian Walbey: On the contrary, the opening part of my narrative explains.
I'm off all next week so i'll see you around grin
Brian Walbey: Hope you enjoyed your working holiday Bill, we had good weather in Norfolk, I don't know what it was like in London.

A quiet corner for reflection, whilst enjoying the light through the stained glass. Have a good time in Norfolk.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Alan. Norfolk was very enjoyable, great weather till the journey home yesterday.
