photoblog image St.Peter & St.Paul, Syston 6/7

St.Peter & St.Paul, Syston 6/7

The church has a perpendicular chancel arch, with panelled decoration, but Victorian plain chamfered responds, and low marble screen wall, with fine brass gates, presumably by Ordish. The chancel roof is of angular timbering; long struts supporting a high collar. There are intricately traceried wood screens to North and South. The wood Victorian pulpit is very elaborate; leaning angels support the main body of it, which has carved figures in highly wrought traceried niche, and a curved sounding board and canopy above, also ornately worked.  I have a short audio/visual of the church, which runs for nearly three minutes, that you can watch here.

Lots of stuff to look at here, Brian. I would like to spend an hour there with a macro lens.
Brian Walbey: So would I Ray, a friend, who is not a photographer, very kindly took me out for the day as I do not drive much these days,(I have balance problems), so I didn't really like to keep him hanging about too long while I spent ages picking out all the good bits.

Lovely shot Brian! This capture is full of detail and the stained glass window is really eye grabbing. smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frances, I was very impressed with the chancel and window, but wait to you see the window in the side-chapel I am posting tomorrow.

That wooden pulpit is an amazing thing Brian!
Brian Walbey: I quite agree Chris, I guess the sounding board was invented to throw the sound out to the assembled congregation.
This is a nice church Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes it is Bill, I ought to go back, as Ray said, there are quiet a lot of bits and pieces worth going in close on.

The light is really well balanced in this, good interior shot.
Brian Walbey: It was very sunny outside and fortunately enough light came in to allow this hand-held shot and at the same time it wasn't so bright it burnt out the windows.

a very fine and well looked after church - the sun light streamed in in a lovely way -I like the flower bunches in English churches very much.
Brian Walbey: Yes this church seems to be very well looked after Philine. All our churches have flowers most of the year, Maureen often does them at our own church, she loves flower arranging.
That looks like a fine pulpit.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is Tom, I guess the sounding board was to throw out the Parsons voice in the days before sound systems.
Very grand Brian! You were even able to capture detail in the stained glass!
Brian Walbey: I was very lucky with the light for this Elizabeth, not too much contrast. BTW I've just finished volume 2 of your Dad's books and started volume 3 last night, I like the way they lead in from one to the next.
The pulpit is superb Brian! I enjoyed your audio/visual.
Brian Walbey: I guess the sounding board was to throw out the Parsons voice in the days before sound systems. Thanks for watching the video Richard.

I'll have to bow to your superior knowledge on the architectural features. It looks good, though, and the flowers add some lovely color.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, I did have a bit of help from Google re the details, as you probably guessed.
A well composed view, Brian, with lots of interest.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Graeme, I would like to go back and take more pictures in this church.
