From My 1970's Darkroom (1 of a few)

BATH ABBEY

The last of my trio of images from Bath is this one of the Abbey taken from down by the weir I’ve featured for the last two days. The Church of Saint Peter and Saint Paul, commonly known as Bath Abbey, is an Anglican parish church and a former Benedictine monastery. Founded in the 7th century, Bath Abbey was reorganised in the 10th century and rebuilt in the 12th and 16th centuries; major restoration work was carried out by Sir George Gilbert Scott in the 1860s. It is one of the largest examples of Perpendicular Gothic architecture in the West Country.

You did a much better job with this subject than me, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ray, I'm sure your photos were o.k., it would be unusual if they weren't.

A grand edifice which I will be seeing later
Brian Walbey: I rather envy you that opportunity Chris, but then I guess you walk past it many times in a year.

The last image - it's a pity - I love this photo - really great - one of best Abbey photos I ever saw! Vive la Darkroom photography!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Philine, I am blushing at your praise.

I've been to Bath several times but never yet been inside the Cathedral. Mind you, it took over 60 years for me to see inside Winchester Cathedral and that's only just up the road from me. I like your view here.
Brian Walbey: I can't recall whether we went inside the Abbey, I suspect we didn't, it was very much a flying visit to see what we could. When we go to Maureen's brothers at Poole we really ought to take some time out and have a look at Winchester.

That looks like a younger Chris walking long the balustrade, Brian
Brian Walbey: Who knows, it might even have been him Lisl.
I remember those bus shelters, thankfully now removed Brian.
Brian Walbey: They do rather seem to spoil the view don't they.

A second Benedictine establishment today. Elizabeth has the Tynemouth priory on show. Well composed and good straight verticals - have you adjusted those post scan?
Brian Walbey: I haven't yet looked at Elizabeth's posting but will catch up very soon. In the meanwhile this is as taken, no fiddling after the scan.
Wonderful details of this place I have visited many years ago Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, we saw the outside but I can't remember going inside, I hope to put that right one of these days.
This is quite unique to see it through the trees like this.
Brian Walbey: I can remember this being a flying visit to Bath and just shooting off with two different cameras, negatives and slides, at any angle I came across just to get a record.
This is a lovely shot of it Brian. I will have to visit it one day
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet. I would like to think Maureen and I might return to bath one day for a proper visit, this was one of those short visits of only a few hours.

A lovely looking building
Brian Walbey: It certainly is Anne, I do hope we manage to go there again one day.

It looks very good in b&w, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Pauline.
This is a terrific shot of the Bath Abbey!
Brian Walbey: Thanks very much Elizabeth.
