photoblog image St.Leonard's Church, Charlecote 1/7

St.Leonard's Church, Charlecote 1/7

To finish off this extended look at the Charlecote Manor estate in Warwickshire here is St.Leonard’s church, a short distance along the road from the entrance to the main House. A mid-Victorian gem conceived by and paid for by the Lucy family who are all grandly entombed and depicted in the family chapel, mainly in alabaster. Mary Lucy was the force behind the building of the church which contains excellent examples of church craftsmanship.

It seems to be in good condition, Brian.
Brian Walbey: It certainly is Ray. My biggest surprise was that I went to this church, just over the road from our hotel, for the first time well after 8pm.one evening and it was still unlocked for visitors.

I don't normally like Victorian Churches, but this looks OK
Brian Walbey: I think the two little towers add to it quite a bit and the inside is very nice.

Mary Lucy would surely consider this a fine tribute, Brian!
Brian Walbey: I'm sure she would Ginnie, and the inside is very nice also.

The addition of two spires shows they wanted to flaunt their wealth doesn't it
Brian Walbey: It does Chris, and it takes away the plain Victorian style a bit.

a finely framed and lightened photo of this big church!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Philine, I think you will enjoy seeing the inside later in the week.
That's a handsome, delicate spire.
Brian Walbey: They towers take the Victorian plainness away don't they.

Wonderful image Brian love the frame
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frances, my 28mm.zoom was just wide enough to get it all in.
A handsome church that leaves no doubt that the family was both wealthy and important
Brian Walbey: Indeed Bill and it is very nice inside as well.
You've captured St. Leonard's exterior expertly, Brian; the framing is lovely. Look forward to seeing the interior shots.
Brian Walbey: My 28mm.zoom just about got it all in from this angle. the inside comes here on Wednesday.
A beautiful looking church, Brian and I do like your framing with the birch curtain smile

Very elegant indeed, nicely captured.
