Eyam Parish Church 1/7

With Eyam, Derbyshire, being famous as the plague village, which I featured last week, the parish church of St.Lawrence receives a lot of visitors. As one walks along the village street past the plague cottages (see last Friday) this fine old stone gateway comes in to view and through it one can see the tower and western end of the church at the end of the path through the churchyard.

I like the curvature of wear on a couple of the stone steps, Brian.
Brian Walbey: They must have been stepped on by millions of feet over the centuries to get that wear.
This entry would make me curious to go in and investigate!
Brian Walbey: Needless to say we did go in, you will see a bit more of the place tomorrow.

It looks as if we are just glimpsing this in passing Brian.
Brian Walbey: No on the way through the gate Chad, more tomorrow.

Those steps have worn away with the passage of feet
Brian Walbey: There must have been stepped on by millions of feet over the centuries to get that wear.
The worn steps are testimony to a deeply religious people, Brian, whose prayers were in spite of or because of "the death" all around them. (sigh)
Brian Walbey: They must have been stepped on by millions of feet over the centuries to get that wear, especially now thousands of tourists visit the village every year. At the time of the plague they must have wondered what God was making them suffer so much for, it was their minister who seemed to lead them through it all.

This is a nice invitation to enter the courtyard. By the looks of the steps, many people did enter.
Great shot.

Good POV
Brian Walbey: An invitation to see what lies beyond tomorrow.
What a beautiful perspective with these worn steps Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, an invitation to see what lies beyond tomorrow.
The steps are worn with centuries of feet.

A fine old gateway.
Brian Walbey: I like the way one can peek through without seeing the whole church.
A simple well worn entrance Brian

I love the POV through the 'gates'
