Photo-a-Day (Tuesday, 10th May, 2016)
That is lovely. There is something about the annual freshness and brightness of the daffodils against the ancient gravestones. A feeling of peace and Spring breezes.
What a beautifully composed shot..thank you Rev.
My uncle was involved with St Wilfrid's. Took us on a tour on one of out visits a many years ago
The symmetry of the church contrasts beautifully with the uneven gravestones and chaotic daffodils.
A lovely shot Rev. David.
Reminds me of our local churchyard which was always handy for wheeling sleepless babies! Lovely for the peace and quiet.
Thanks for the comments. Sadly, the daffs have faded - and the view of the church will soon be obscured as the leaves form again on the trees.
Tours of the church will be part of the Anniversary Weekend marking the Queen's 90th birthday - at 10 and 11 am on Saturday June 11th.
A really nice photo, well done Rev.
Lovely shot David!
You wonder why the right side of the church as a sloping roof and the left side as a flat roof.
Mick - it may be something to do with the fact that under the left-hand roof there is the Standish Chapel - which was a church-within-a-church owned by the Roman Catholic Standish family until shortly before they died out early last century. The inside construction of the roof is more ornately built than the rest of the church - so presumably the walls above were built differently from those above the other three corners, which are all as the right-hand side, to make it stand out from the outside as well.
Very interesting Rev
