St.Peters ad Vincula 5/5

Hampton Lucy

Our final short visit to St.Peter's Church, which you all seem to have enjoyed, is looking back down the aisle of the church to the West doors and another very attractive circular window up in the tower.  As you can see there are also very large clerestory windows above each of the arches.  I have only given you a very brief idea of the beauty of this church, for those in the U.K., if you are ever near Stratford or Warwick it is well worth making a short diversion for a visit here.

That was a very pleasurable visit, thank you, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I'm pleased you have enjoyed it Ray.
nice view point and i like it that there is no one else around in it
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush, I always try and photograph churches with nobody about in them to be honest.
This is a really beautiful church - I love the rosette window above- they seem to have thought of everything for a lovely place to Worship!
Brian Walbey: I hope, and I'm sure they do, the village population realise what a gem of a church they have in their midst.
This is framed perfectly Brian and St.Peters ad Vincula is a magnificent church... i have enjoyed this series very much....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Peter, it is a delight isn't it.
Yes indeed I will have to go here sometime!
Brian Walbey: I hope you do Bill, and then call in the Charlcote church just up the road, better still do it the other way round, that way you get the best of the two last.

a wonderful nave (Boat Friday, too) with the rosette window - a really heavenly church! I wonder that there is not any person who was sitting down.
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely church Philine. I always try and photograph churches without people, just as you see them in guide books and so on.
a long walk down the isle
Brian Walbey: Yes it just shows how large this church is for a little village.
Would be hard to disagree with you Brian on the evidence! smile
Brian Walbey: I just can't believe a small village with a population of about 450 has a lovely church like this, I hope they all appreciate what is at the centre of their village.
This is a fine view Brian and a great end to this enjoyable series smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Martin.
It looks like a very well maintained church, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I just can't believe a small village with a population of about 450 has a lovely church like this, I hope they all appreciate what is at the centre of their village.
A rather splendid church
Brian Walbey: It is indeed John, how lucky the villagers are to have this in their midst.

Look back over the past 5 images, I'm not convinced that I have been there after all, even though your location ties in with my recollections. I thought I had a shot of this window but mine is very slightly. Oh well, never mind! I'll get round to post my own views one day and they you can see if you can recall seeing what I saw! I'm enjoyed your visit.
Brian Walbey: Thanks for your interest Alan. I bet you went to the nearby church at Charlcote, right next to the Charlcote Park and Manor NT property. I am posting images from that church in a while but you can find them all on my Flickr here http://www.flickr.com/photos/brianaw2010/sets/72157630248355404/

Your pictures of the interior have been vibrant, Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Lisl.
A wonderful series Brian. I really enjoyed it!
Brian Walbey: I'm very pleased to hear that Richard, thanks.
Congratulations in this extraordinary series Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Juan, both for your comment and catching up, it really is a lovely church.
