Ashford-In-The-Water Church 4/7

For some reason my general pictures looking down the aisle of Holy Trinity church at Ashford-in-the-Water didn’t come out very well but this one of the chancel was reasonable although the contrast of the light in the stained glass window has burnt out in the highlight areas where there is only plain glass, sorry about that, there isa better one of that window later in the week.

Thanks for your comments yesterday about our sons partner Amanda, we were able to bring her back to our sons home yesterday afternoon from hospital.  She had been unwell for a couple of days and on Monday was extremely dizzy and sick, and collapsed a couple of times, so her friend and Maureen called the paramedic who then had her transferred to A.& E., she has had various tests and seems to have recovered, hopefully all will now be well.

Nice to hear that Amanda has recovered Brian.

a fine place to calm down and to speak a prayer for your family and us ...
Brian Walbey: It is a simple but really nice little village church Philine.

Very Victorian isn't it
Brian Walbey: It is certainly very attractively simple.

Good news about Amanda. Do they know what caused it? I like the simplicity on the church; you have captured the feeling quite well.
Brian Walbey: Yes it is a really nice little church Alan. Amanda is still not 100%, and had a Lumber Puncture which fortunately proved negative of anything, so the general feeling was that she had one of these 'viruses'!

All's well, that s good, Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Lisl.
A church with a comfortable look about it, whilst appreciating more ornate interiors I always find them a bit 'too much' for intended purpose.
Brian Walbey: It is a delightful little village church Martin, if you venture over that way, and it is not far from Bakewell or Chatsworth, it is worth a visit.
Interesting symbols on the ends of the pews Brian.
Brian Walbey: I never noticed those while Iw as there. That's the sort of thing that Lisl is good at seeing.
I am surprised to see the star of david. Glad Amanda is feeling better.
Brian Walbey: Yes there must be a reason for those particular carvings. Amanda is better but obviously not still 100%.

Good to hear she is on the mend.

Matching 'kneelers' - quite unusual these days.
Brian Walbey: On the mend but not 100% Mike. Some churches I've been in the ladies have made kneelers for the entire church and some are very inventive in design.
strange way to place people, or is this for priests and choir?
Brian Walbey: This is the Chancel area Chantal and the seating either side is for the choir, they are certainly attractive choir pews, i can remember sitting in ones like that when I was a choirboy in my younger days.
Yes stained glass windows have a tendancy to do that don't they. Nice peaceful shot and glad Amanda is back home now Brian.
Brian Walbey: I have a couple of better shots of the window later on. It was peaceful, I think we had the church to ourselves which is how I like it for taking photos.
A pleasing church

Glad all seems to be well with Amanda
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely village church Bill, well worth a visit if you venture that way. It's not far from either Bakewell or Chatsworth. Amanda is not a 100% as yet but hopefully will improve over the next few days.
A very simple interior - I'll have to find alternative views when I visit, Brian - you're making me work!
Brian Walbey: Sorry Tom, perhaps you should go for the detail shots I usually miss.
This is still a wonderful composition of this wonderful church Brian... there is no need to explain what is not there... i enjoy that which i see....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter, your very generous in thought, I have better shots of the window over the weekend.
It does look lovely. I'm sorry to hear (belatedly) about Amanda- but am pleased she's doing better. I hope she'll continue on the mend.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth. Chris is taking her back to her house today, she has been at his since Wednesday.

They are familiar looking star symbols, Brian.
