I am very excited to see the Tudor period church next door to the Minster open although I don’t get far. It is only open for workmen to set up for an evening event. However, one of the guides does let me have a look from one side of the nave. I am thrilled to […]

Monday 10th September is a mild, cloudy day. We are in a flat mood after the emotional weekend. We check out of our digs and return to Ludlow arriving at 11.0am. We enjoy a drink and cake at a cafe near the castle, but are disappointed that the castle is closed to clear up after […]

820c – St. Mary’s Church, Warwick

St Mary's Collegiate Church, Warwick

I take a walk into the town to visit the stunning Collegiate church of St. Mary’s. It is a mixture of an 18th century tower and nave, a 14th century chancel, but it is the 15th century Beauchamp chapel that is the star attraction with superb tombs pf Richard 13th Earl of Warwick, and Robert […]

Sandham Memorial Chapel

A beautifully sunny day, I stop off for a quick visit to see the Oratory of All Souls, otherwise known as Sandham Memorial Chapel, built in the 1920s in Burghclere, just south of Newbury in Hampshire. Built in brick with two side alms houses, the central chapel space is stunning, covered in murals by Stanley […]

Haworth Church

The church is next door to the parsonage. Although not the church building the Brontes knew, having been demolished in 1879, the current 1880 building has memorials and displays on the Brontes including a brass floor plate near to the Bronte burial site. We enjoy a drink and cake in a cafe part way down […]

30 Mar , 2018  

After trying several times in the past to see the interior of this Scarborough church located in the South Cliff area, I finally manage it by attending a Good Friday music event held at 7.0pm. I enjoy looking at the Pre-Raphaelite windows and, sitting neat the front of the nave area, I have good views […]
