Breedon On The Hill Church (3/7)

The east end of St.Mary and St.Hardulp’s parish church with the Early English lancet windows typical of the 13th.century when this surviving part of the church was constructed following the events of 874 AD when the community was attacked by pagan Danish and Norse invaders and the buildings were looted and despoiled. Some of you haven't seen this link http://www.geograph.org.uk/photo/2315536 which shows the actual situation of this church in the landscape, ap;olgies for not giving it out earlier.

I now appreciate how exposed the position of this fine church is
Brian Walbey: Indeed Chris, although the views from the top are quite pleasant in some directions.
Thank you for this stunning image Brian!
Brian Walbey: My pleasure Richard.

What a shame this Church is so far away from me, Brian - I would enjoy visiting it
Brian Walbey: I have exactly the same feelings about the lovely places you show us from round your way, especially those your visitors, Ginnie, Astrid et al have been showing recently. Maureen has a cousin in Bradford-on-Avon but their only contact is Christmas cards otherwise we might suggest a visit, that place looks very interesting.

Terrifying days Brian, imagine being confronted by a Norse on a horse.
Brian Walbey: Indeed Chad smile
It has a precarious position - that's for sure.
Brian Walbey: But it is also a very popular visiting place, even for people who don't go in the church, and it has some fine views from the top.
Gorgeous arches and stained glass, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes a fine little church, thanks Pauline.
it appears that there is a source of great light in the upper corners of this church. great shot, you have made effective use of this light.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a very light church at the eastern end although the other end is quite dark.
A fine church!
Brian Walbey: It is Tom, a popular visiting place locally being on the top of the hill.
What a fantastic place to build a church
Brian Walbey: And it's been there for many years now Martin.
Some rather fine box pews Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed although I now realise I didn't shut the one I'd walked through before I took this.
