Garthorpe Church, Lincolnshire 4/5

The best features of St.Mary’s church, Garthorpe interior are a medieval Easter Sepulchre and aumbry. There are 13th. century piscinas at the east end of both aisles. The interior was stripped of plaster during a Victorian restoration, with the result that it has a very pleasant warm glow, due to the colour of the local stone.

Yes...the naked stone walls are a delight, Brian.
Brian Walbey: If the plaster was just plain then this probably looks better, but if it had very old paintings on it then that would be a different matter.

A lovely church, see from both directions, but I don't like the lamps, sorry.
Brian Walbey: I'm not keen on the lamps either Philine.
