photoblog image Clumber Park 6/7

Clumber Park 6/7

Built of red Runcorn and white Steetley stone, it consists of a choir with aisle, nave, transepts, vestries and a lofty central tower containing one bell, capped by a 180 ft spire modelled on Patrington (East Yorkshire). In the north passage is the baptistry and to the south of the chancel is the Lady Chapel. The chancel is elaborately decorated with wood carving of the rood screen, priest’s and choir stalls by the Rev Ernest Geldert. The interior stonework including the two altars, the pulpit, the font and the stone figures were designed by Bodley. The statue of the Virgin in the south aisle is by Ninian Comper. Much of the stained glass is by C Kempe. Very kindly the Steward on duty saw me taking photos and let me into the Chancel which is usually closed to visitors, I thought that very nice of him.

This has got to be a place worth visiting. The screen looks very agreeable, as do the absence of pews in the nave
Brian Walbey: I was lucky in having it all to myself and as I said in my notes the Steward let me into the Chancel which is usually closed to the public.

This is wonderful and very impressive. What beautiful colours the stone of the walls have.
Brian Walbey: It is a beautiful little church although it is somewhat dark inside, I had to work hard to get these pictures like this.

photographed from all sides - a very fine church and image!
Brian Walbey: I was lucky in having it all to myself and as I said in my notes the Steward let me into the Chancel which is usually closed to the public. I just know you would enjoy visiting it Philine.
A handsome Victorian building.
Brian Walbey: It certainly is Tom.

A fine looking church. I hoe you made a donation to the church on view of the kindness of the steward.
Brian Walbey: I did Alan, I always leave a donation at any church I take photos in, except for once at Haworth when for some reason the Minister deliberately came and stood in front of me as I was taking a picture in the chancel and the Churchwarden advised they had a funeral in about 25 minutes time, they were so rude and unwelcoming, indeed unChristian, I turned round and walked out without passing a word.
It is rather splendid Brian. You picked a good time
Brian Walbey: I had the church more or less to myself, there was nobody about.
wonderfully different triptych Brian... the same scene from different depths of field... well done mate....petersmile
Brian Walbey: It is a narrow church and this to me is the bestw ay to show it.
