Very fine vaulting, Brian...is is structural or merely decorative?
Brian Walbey: Indeed it is Ray, but in answer to your question I'm not sure, the church was built in Victorian times so perhaps it might be decorative.

Beautiful capture of the stained glass Brian. Lovely!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Frances.
beautiful shot. lovely proportions. i like the balanced exposure between the illuminated stained glass and the much darker columns and arches
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush. usually I find it difficult to balance the exposure for the window and the surround, this one worked out o.k.

They really knew how to spend their wealth didn't they
Brian Walbey: Indeed they did Chris.
Lovely shot, Brian. You know just how it would feel and smell in there.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Pauline, it was lovely and peaceful as I had the church to myself.

If anyone would find it, Brian, it would be you, of course. Thank you.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie. This was just a few yards down the road from our hotel in Charlecote in one direction and the gates to the Manor I've showed for the past few weeks the same in the other direction. Elizabeth likes the look of Charlcote so I dropped a strong hint that she might persuade her "young man" they might make a stay there for a short time next May.
I love those church windows, they make such nice color and light views
Brian Walbey: Thanks Chantal, just for a change I managed to capture these without loads of "burn-out".

This looks to be a Church of great beauty, Brian
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely little church Lisl, the picture of the entire church is on Sunday.

This does not look too old Brian.
Brian Walbey: No built in Victorian times by a wealthy family Chad.
Nice,Brian,I do like stained glass.
Brian Walbey: Yes so do I Frank, I'm just not normally so fortunate as this when I photograph it.

a beautiful Victorian stained glass window - I see Jesus Christ in the centre?
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a very fine window.
Beautiful craftsmanship and a nicely framed shot Brian!
Brian Walbey: It is and thanks Martin.
For Victorian stained glass this looks quite restrained Brian
Brian Walbey: Yes but it is quite attractive and not too fussy.
That's a lovely window.
Brian Walbey: I quite like the relative plainness of it Tom.
I'm always amazed by the craftsmanship in stained glass, and look at the detail in that stone work. Wonderful Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Sally, there is some fine work in that church.
A very tasteful window
Brian Walbey: Yes and I quite like the plainness of it John.

The stained glass is beautiful, well captured
Brian Walbey: Thanks Aussie.
The stained glass is beautiful - I love your composition, Brian!
Brian Walbey: I like all the more for being a little plain compared with some one sees.
