photoblog image Ashford-In-The-Water Church 2/7

Ashford-In-The-Water Church 2/7

Looking at the parish church of Holy Trinity at Ashford-in-the-Water from the western end you can see the oldest part of the church which is the 12.2 metre high, Norman tower, the walls of which are up to one metre thick at the base. Housed within the tower are a total of 7 bells, the oldest of which is the sanctus bell which was dedicated before the reformation.  The area in which yesterdays image was taken is off picture to the left hand side.

Very nicely framed Brian! And the light is superb too.

Classic shot Briian, fine photo.
We have this design in some of our white, wooden churches.
A neat little church with that magnificent tree for company

The light picks out the stones very sharply and nicely Brian.

It looks like it will be there for centuries to come - I hope!
