St.Stephen's Church, Fylingdales 2/7

Following on from yesterdays image of St.Stephen’s church at Fylingdales here you get a better idea of the number of 18th.and 19th.century grave stones in the graveyard.  It is thought the first church on the site was built in the 11th.century and then extensive changes were made during the 18th. century before the whole building was pulled down in 1821. Find out what happened then tomorrow.

That's one helluva snapshot, Brian!

I love you point of view on this one too! Fascinating subject!

A lovely composition, Brian. the bluebells work well with the sky and help offset the greyness of the stones. I like the cup0ola on the church, very unusual.
Brian Walbey: Yes I like this almost as much as Monday's angle.

That cupola certainly adds charm Brian
Brian Walbey: I guess with such an austere looking building they felt it needed decorating up a bit with a mini belltower.

I love to visit old cemeteries - and this is an especially beautiful one with such a lovely view and the wild growing flowers. I can feel the wind blowing here on stormy days. I would like to read some inscriptions on the old grave stones.
Brian Walbey: Funny you should mention the wind blowing because when I took this the sky behind me was pitch black and within a couple of minutes the rain was pouring down.

This is a lovely wild churchyard, Brian
Brian Walbey: It looks as though it needs a good trim but I think the long grasses and weeds help here.
Super Brian, spot on.
Brian Walbey: Thanks for that very generous comment John.
Very nice composition Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Richard, I particularly liked this angle.
Lovely composition, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom, this angle appealed to me.
