Ashford-In-The-Water Church 1/7

Ashford-in-the-Water is a village in the Derbyshire Peak District, and on the River Wye. It is known for the quarrying of Ashford Black Marble, a form of limestone. The parish church of Holy Trinity dates back to the 13th century. In the churchyard lies the base and stump of the market cross, which may date from the fifteenth century, this is a trio of shots I took around the churchyard.

It is a very neat cemetery, Brian...folks in these parts take care of their memories.
Brian Walbey: It isn't very often we come across an untidy cemetery, you probably noticed that whilst you were over here.
These are very well composed images Brian and i like your presentation....petersmile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Peter.

For some reason I always like cemeteries. Wonderful pictures to give a nice overview.
Brian Walbey: Some of these village church cemeteries are very well looked after, this one certainly is.
Wonderful presentation of this cemetery Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard.

Very beautiful.
Brian Walbey: So is the church, I'm showing that tomorrow.
As you already know, Brian, I'm a fan of these parish churches and their graveyards.
Brian Walbey: Then you would like this one Ginnie, and the other three we visited on that same day!!!

I always welcome a "church" week, Brian
Brian Walbey: I'm so pleased to hear that Lisl, quite by accident we ended up visiting four churches on that day out!

Now this is interesting because I have heard of neither the place nor the marble Brian
Brian Walbey: The village is a popular stopping off place because of this http://www.stephenelliottphotography.co.uk/_photo_4222683.html more of that another time.

I like to visit old graveyards for historic reasons and picture opportunities. I wonder if that market cross necessarily means the market was next to the graveyard long ago.
Brian Walbey: Yes old graveyards are very interesting, some have the most splendiferous gravestones. The cross was provably close by, there is a large area where I market could have been held and right next to the church is this, the thing the village is most famous for http://www.stephenelliottphotography.co.uk/_photo_4222683.html

A very classic looking English countryside location. All lush greens and natural stone.
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely little village Mike, well worth a visit, certainly one of the most popular places in that part of the Peak District.
I hope we get to see some of the black marble. You had a lovely day for the visit.
Brian Walbey: I don't think I actually got to see any of the black marble Mary. It was a lovely day altogether, quite by accident we somehow fitted in visits to another three village churches during the day!
A welcoming grave yard
Brian Walbey: In as much as it is very well kept and quite picturesque then yes Chantal smile
It's looking very pleasant on this lovely sunny day Brian. Nice trio of shots
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet, it was a nice place to visit, and a nice church, as you will see this week. Quite by accident we somehow fitted in visits to another three village churches during the day!

I'm just 5 miles away from Ashford-in-the-Water this week. Oh to have some sun .. or even some sky with some detail in it; it's just felt grey sad Limestone is good choice; it is the bedrock of the White Peak.
