Bakewell Church 5/7

The south transept of All Saints church holds the Vernon Chapel with monuments to Vernon and Manners families, including splendid ones to John Manners and Dorothy Vernon, and Sir George Manners, father of the 8th Earl of Rutland, and his wife Grace. There is also a remarkable monument to Sir Godfrey Foljambe and his wife, in the south aisle, dated about 1377 and set in alabaster with coats of arms above. I thought this would be a good way of showing you some of the fine tombs and memorials within the chapel.

It looks like a fine place to be, after you have ceased to be, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Better than being six foot under or roasted in an oven Ray.
A lovely presentation of the inside Brian! Sorry for my mistake...
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I suspect we've all got names wrong at one time or another, I know I have!

I like how you have captured these monuments, Brian - I always find that sort of thing difficult to depict satisfactorily
Brian Walbey: Thanks Lisl. Unusually for me I planned this collage at the time I took the photos and it has come out just as I imagined it.
I especially like the middle one, Brian, where those resting in peace can look at the stained glass!
Brian Walbey: That tomb is placed ideally in front of that window. Unusually for me I planned this collage at the time I took the photos and it has come out just as I imagined it.

A glorious example of memorial art Brian
Brian Walbey: LOvely isn't it. Unusually for me I planned this collage at the time I took the photos and it has come out just as I imagined it.

an excellent collage of the different tombs!

They all look so peaceful
Brian Walbey: Much better than being six foot under or roasted in an oven.
I have never seen such a thing in person.
Brian Walbey: This chapel was the highlight of my visit to this church, it came as a great surprise. I guess, without appearing rude, that things such as this are few and far between in Canada.
Churches are veritable treasure troves Brian.
Brian Walbey: Unusually for me I planned this collage at the time I took the photos and it has come out just as I imagined it.
They have a fine collection there Brian. A nicely put together collage

I wonder if these are related to the Vernons of Hanbury Hall
Brian Walbey: I don't think so Bill, they were involved with Haddon Hall, just up the road from Bakewell.

What a wonderful presentation this is. I am always impressed with the way they have the tombs and memorials decorated with statues.

A fine collage and it gives a good feel for the tombs, as you say. Interesting to see the top left and top right being fairly similar.
Brian Walbey: I guess in those days the peopled who mattered wanted to be portrayed at prayer whatever sort of people they were, it gave a good impression.
