Hmmmmmmmmm...

That carved water receptical is impressive, but the candelabra looks like a left-over from a car-boot same.

My feeling is that this image is not up to you normal [very] high standard, Brian...perhaps you posted the wrong one. smile
Brian Walbey: There was a lot of 'stuff' round the font which I didn't want to capture but I did want to show it although I wouldn't want to stand preaching under that not so attractive candelabra!
A very simplistic wrought iron there.
Brian Walbey: I'm not sure that I like it very much, especially if I had to stand underneath it preaching!
That candelabra not being directly over the pulpit/font ? is kicking my O.C.D. off Brian....
Brian Walbey: I wouldn't want to stand underneath it preaching, all that candle wax dripping down ones neck!
"Distinguished" works for me, Brian!
Brian Walbey: And me too Ginnie.

I think this is very old. I like the chandelier and the brown beams. And of course the brick wall is always what I like, Brian.
Brian Walbey: That old stonework certainly gives it some character.

It may be distinguished, but the candles are extinguished. Silly joke, eh?
Brian Walbey: I wouldn't fancy having one of those dripping wax down my neck as I gave the sermon smile

The lighting overwhelms the pulpit - very odd..

That's a very fine pulpit, Brian
Brian Walbey: I thought so too Lisl, not sure if I like, the candelabra though.
The pulpit looks like a fine piece of work Brian
Brian Walbey: I thought so too Bill, not sure if I like, the candelabra though.

It looks quite unique Brian.
Brian Walbey: It is very attractive, more so than the candelabra.
The small, ornate pulpit would suggest so, yes.
Brian Walbey: Rather nice isn't it.
The lighting fixture looks to be hanging quite low for a church installation, Brian. More suited for over a dining room table.
Brian Walbey: I'm not too keen on the light fitting to be honest myself.

What a history!
Brian Walbey: It's hard to take in such a little fishing village church like this could have so much history.

There is some beautiful 'equipment' in this old church.
Brian Walbey: There is Philine, although whilst I like the pulpit i'm not so keen on the candelabra.
I like he chandelier!
Brian Walbey: I'm not to keen on that, but I do like the pulpit.

The candelabra looks rather out of place; it looks rather too large in comparison with the font.
Brian Walbey: I wasn't too keen on that myself.
