photoblog image St.Peter & St.Paul, Syston 5/7

St.Peter & St.Paul, Syston 5/7

The nave roof of timber is also 15th Century. The local architect Frederick Webster Ordish (1821-1885) extensively restored the church in 1871-72 and in 1881 he extended the nave by one bay and rebuilt the chancel.  I have a short audio/visual of the church, which runs for nearly three minutes, that you can watch here.

Beautiful towering ceiling taken at the perfect angle.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frances, sadly I haven't a lens wide enough to get all the ceiling in.

I like all those colourful heads and torsos decorating the ceiling, Brian...they remind me of game-hunting trophies.
Brian Walbey: An Angel for every convert perhaps Ray.
I like your angle Brian... there are heads sculpted all along the ceiling....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks peter, i couldn't get all the roof in, even at this angle.

It certainly looks as if this place was restored sympathetically Brian
Brian Walbey: Indeed Chris, it is all in good order.
Great angle to capture this superb ceiling Brian!
Brian Walbey: About the only way I had much chance of getting most of it in Richard.

I like the roof supports - a bit diffrent from the usual run of angels
Brian Walbey: Yes they are quite interesting, I ought to go back with my long zoom to get close-ups of the characters.

Colourful bosses and other bits are all the rage these days Brian. Every parson should look in the mirror each morning and say, 'I must have my boss painted'.

I have liked very much your audio/visual of this church! A wonderful wooden ceiling with all the bosses and figures!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine, and especially for watching my video.
I hope getting up off your back from way down there was not too difficult.
Brian Walbey: I didn't get right down Mary, other people about, they would have thought me even madder than I looked anyway.
You are really getting into the you tube video Brian
Brian Walbey: I am slowly converting a lot of my audio/visual sequences to upload to YouTube, I think I have about 15 on there now with some more being prepared.
A good friend of mine lived just down the road from this church for a while ... but I've never been it ...the church that is.
Brian Walbey: Worth a short drive out that way from your place Richard, there are also some nice little villages a bit further on.

Love the roof details
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a fine roof with all those carved characters.
A splendid architectural detail Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Fred, those little characters are really quite interesting, perhaps I should return with a longer lens.
Very fine roof and nice capture, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom, those little characters are really quite interesting, perhaps I should return with a longer lens.
A great perspective Brian! It's a very decorative ceiling, with all those heads smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin, those little characters are really quite interesting, perhaps I should return with a longer lens.
Splendid roof, Brian. Nice Video and music.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Graeme, those little characters are really quite interesting, perhaps I should return with a longer lens, and thanks for looking at the video.
This timber roof has a rich and warm look to it, Brian. The maintenance is so well done you would think it was just newly constructed. Thoroughly enjoyed the video.
Brian Walbey: It is a very well looked after church Beverly. Thanks for watching my video.
