Ashford-In-The-Water Church 3/7

Looking at the parish church of Holy Trinity at Ashford-in-the-Water from the eastern end a better idea of its size is can be seen and also details of the lovely, and what I assume is, local stone used to build the church. There is also a rather lovely Celtic style cross just outside a door leading out from the church.

APOLOGIES: We've had a hectic last couple of days so my apologies for not replying to your comments on Tuesday and making comments on your postings, if you normally get a comment from me then I did find time to look at your Tuesday picture at least.  Mid evening on Monday our son's partner was rushed in to A.& E.at Leicester, whilst Chris was on late shift at work, so we ended up with the Grandchildren overnight while he went to the hospital and didn't get home till about 2.30 am.on Tuesday morning. Maureen got the children to school yesterday morning and then we had to go out to a village some 20 miles away from us as I had a long standing arrangement to give a church Ladies Fellowship an audio/visual presentation and we got back about teatime. Chris has now got compassionate leave from work, and the children, whilst I spend today starting, and finishing, our church newsletter for next Sunday and Maureen gives a presentation to a ladies craft group she belongs to this morning, who said retirement was realaxing!!  Meanwhile, as I write Amanda is having tests in hospital to find out what is ailing her.

What a beautiful church Brian! I hope that Chris partner has recovered by now.

The stone window frames are wonderful things, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Altogether a nice church Ray.

Sorry to hear about your family issues, Brian; naturally even more important than photography blogs. Sounds like a tiring day for your and Maureen. So this is what Derbyshire looks like in the sun smile
Brian Walbey: I believe she is coming home today. Hopefully you have got sunshine today, we have here.

I am sorry to hear about Chris' partner. I hope things will turn out for the best. I am glad that Maureen and you are able to help them in this hectic time.
A wonderful church and I love the colours and shapes.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a lovely little church Astrid. We have just heard that Amanda is being released from hospital this afternoon.
I've become aware lately, Brian, of older parents (like us!) having to take care of their much younger children and grandchildren. It's not what we expect as we age...rather the other way around, which we DO expect. I trust all will work itself out soon.

In the meantime, may wonderful images like this calm you!
Brian Walbey: I don't think you ever stop looking after and worrying about them to be honest Ginnie, we are lucky that ours live a lot nearer to us than yours do. We have just heard that Amanda is being released from hospital this afternoon.
I hope she will be OK soon Brian. A worrying time for you all.
Brian Walbey: We have just heard that Amanda is being released from hospital this afternoon. She is still not fully fit but hasn't got anything seriously wrong.
It is good that you could help out, Brian. The children would be a bit scared with their mom ill and it is good to have a warm grandparent to ease their fears. Please let us know how Amanda is doing.
Brian Walbey: We have just heard that Amanda is being released from hospital this afternoon. She is still not fully fit but hasn't got anything seriously wrong.

Oh, I am sorry to hear about your family issues. May all things turn out for the best - good that you both are present to give help. I like your peaceful photo!
Brian Walbey: We have just heard that Amanda is being released from hospital this afternoon. She is still not fully fit but hasn't got anything seriously wrong thank goodness, but obviously still feels a bit under the weather. You would enjoy a visit to this lovely little church.
the colors are so sharp and crisp
Brian Walbey: It is a delightful little country church Chantal.

Retirement not busy? I have no problems filling a day - such a lot to do and then there is family business as you have experienced just now.

Picture is great on definition.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Louis.
A lovely shot of this side Brian. You have had your hands full recently and I hope things are getting back to normal now
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet. We were able to fetch Amanda back this afternoon from the hospital looking a lot better, she is staying with our son, they live in separate houses although they are partners, for the next few days so won't have to worry about looking after the children as they are there as well.

A very busy and worrying time for you and Maureen, Brian. I hope Amanda is OK and that things calm down for you soon
Brian Walbey: AS you no doubt read on my Thursday post we brought Amanda back on Wednesday evening, although she is still not as well as she might be, we must hope she continues to improve.
A lovely bit of stonework - you've had a hectic time - hope all is well!
Brian Walbey: Yes a lovely old church Tom. Amanda is now home but still not 100%.

This sort of two churches in one are not totally uncommon. There is in one in Pakefield in North Suffolk
Brian Walbey: From this view it is actually quite difficult to decide which is the side of the church with the chancel etc.
