Sutton Bonington - St.Michaels 3/5

The chancel of St.Michael’s Church, Sutton Bonington, was re-built entirely in 1878 when a new organ was installed. Nave and aisle roofs were replaced in the 19th century and the pitch of the older roof is visible on the east wall of the nave.

Oh I like this in B&W!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Elizabeth, I must admit the colour version wasn't one of my best!

This is like the Church postcards you used to get in the 60s - it certainly shows up the detail well in black and white
Brian Walbey: I guess it does thinking about it. I must admit the colour version wasn't one of my best!

Yes I can see the original outline
Brian Walbey: I doibt there's many old churches that haven't been changed over the years.

Again, I can't help but notice. Very ornate and a big building, but there doesn't seem to be a lot of seating.
Brian Walbey: There is a side area either side of the arches with more seating. My guess would be seating for about 150 people.
Looks like they literally raised the roof Brian
Brian Walbey: yes it does, I wonder if they do that on Sunday's in song.
Now the view the bride sees as she leaves the church Brian.
Brian Walbey: Indeed and complete with the guy and the video camera walking backwards in front of them!

Oh, a realy impressive church -I don't see any entrance, only the baptistery.
Brian Walbey: Lovely isn't it. The main entrance is off to the left under the last arch and through the side area on the south side.
B/W suits this very well.
Brian Walbey: I must admit the colour version wasn't one of my best, hence this version!
this scene lends itself well to b/w, Brian, in my opinion. nice shot.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ayush.

I would not have noticed the difference in the pitch of the original roof until you mentioned it. I like Bill's comment.
Brian Walbey: I just assumed it was how it was built until I found the information.
Lovely detail of all the stone work Brian
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martin.
Very imposing, Brian!
Brian Walbey: It looks that way in B.& W.

Very fine carpentry in evidence here, Brian.
Brian Walbey: There is indeed Ray, I wonder how old they are.
