Ault Hucknall Church 2/5

The church of St.John the Baptist dates back a 1000 years, the oldest parts include the narrow arch between the chancel and the sanctuary, shown here, the two large pillars on the north aisle, a small loop window in the North wall, and the large arch between the Nave and the chancel.

Absolutely beautiful! I was hoping you would show the inside of the church smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frances, a few more shots of the inside during the week.

What a beautiful, cosy and warm looking church and so well cared for with love! The sanctuary for the priests (a Catholic church?) is a bit far away from the laypersons.
Brian Walbey: It is as you say Philine, it is an Anglican church but it does seem strange to have the chancel with the archway in between, it must date back to the original church and subsequent extensions.

I rather like the wooden board with the numbers on Brian.
Brian Walbey: It's for playing "Spot the Hymn" Chad smile

A lot of work gone into the cushions - some one in the community has been busy.
Brian Walbey: The cushions are kneelers for praying Mike and as you suggest no doubt the church community spent many hours making such lovely items.
good angle, warm colors
Brian Walbey: Yes the stone the church is built from has a lovely glow doesn't it.

I love to see Churches as old as this one, Brian
Brian Walbey: So do I Lisl, and although there is virtually nothing else around this church it did seem to have quite a large congregation there at the time and is obviously well looked after.

Its fantastic to think of the age of these lovely old churches. The history that has happened since they were built is incredible.
Brian Walbey: It seems from what I could find out that parts of this church are very old indeed Alan, no doubt the walls could tell some stories.
It is very beautiful inside isn't it. Lovely warm tones Brian
Brian Walbey: The stone is a lovely colour Janet and it was a delightful church to go in. Three more inside shots to come.
A lovely atmosphere in this church, Brian! smile
Brian Walbey: Yes the lights and the colour of the stone make it feel warm and welcoming.

Very solid Brian and that narrow doorway looks suspiciously Saxon to me
Brian Walbey: Apparently that archway is probably from the original church built about 1,000 years ago.
You've got the colouring just right Brian to show the detail of the kneelers against the marvellous stone work of the church and reflect the atmosphere. It's lovely.
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much, those kneelers were very impressive, the fruit of much labours I would imagine.

A pleasing interior shot.
Brian Walbey: Thanks John.
You captured very well the mystical atmosphere Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, actually on the left out of picture were a group of people enjoying coffee and cakes so the atmosphere was a bit different to that the picture gives out.
It exudes a charming, homely atmosphere, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Graeme, actually on the left out of picture were a group of people enjoying coffee and cakes so the atmosphere was a bit different to that the picture gives out.
Beautiful shot!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth.
