Sutton Bonington - St.Michaels 4/5

A further restoration of St.Michael’s Church, Sutton Bonington took place in 1895 and the oak rood screen and pulpit were added at this time. The church has stained glass windows by Kempe: the window in the east wall is 1897, and in the north wall 1901.

Keeping the local renovators in business...
Brian Walbey: The Victorians went to town on churches with their alterations.
Every village and town seemed to be very keen on upgrading their churches in the Victorian era Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes they did, I have no idea why unless they hadn't been looked after very well and were in need of repair at the very least.
Very nicely done.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary, I thought it a very nice pulpit.

There are always so lovely bunches of flowers in the English churches.
Brian Walbey: The people in our churches, whatever the denomination, take a pride in their flower displays, the ladies certainly do in our Baptist church. This weekend we have our Harvest celebrations and all 8 side windows in the main chapel will be decorated with flowers and the front of the church as well, plus of course produce etc. We have a local man who grows the most magnificent Chrysanthemums and donates a lot of them for our decorating even though he is not even a church goer, they were delivered while we were there this morning doing something.
i like this scene very much. nicely employed light here, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I think I was there at just the right time lighting wise to capture this lovely pulpit.
The pulpit is rather appealing, not being over elaborate
Brian Walbey: It is the simplicity of it that I really like.

It is all very colourful, Brian
Brian Walbey: It is one of those churches where the ladies make sure there are plenty of flowers to brighten up the building, indeed a lady was there doing an arrangement during my visit and we had a very enjoyable chat for quite a long time about the church.

Well done to the flower arrangers. I have in a mind a bunch of ladies of a certain vintage doing this wink
Brian Walbey: Maureen is one of those ladies of a certain vintage, she loves flower arranging, and is at our church this morning helping with the decorations for our harvest services this weekend.
