Thank you Reverend David for this and yesterday Photograph. Today's remind me of the effort you made from the top of St., Catherine's steeple a few years ago,well worth looking at for anyone new to Photo-a-Day.

Two excellent and very nostalgic photos for me.In the late 50's early 60's I had relations who lived in the houses with the steps to the right.The only time I went into this church was to my uncles funeral who was buried in the church graveyard but I can still remember where his grave is.Next time I visit the area I will have a look round

From the comments Rev David it would appear that none of the subscribers saw your 2015 calendar.

Nevertheless, Jonno, it sold very well, and made quite a sum for the church.
I'm a bit surprised that this year's calendar hasn't sold quite as well, given folks' liking for nostalgic pics.
Copies are still available though....

We are currently on holiday in the Canaries so wondering when the picture was taken. Have we missed the snow!!!
Great picture
