Ha ha! Yes indeed, there is something to be said about all architecture 'good' or 'bad'. :-)



I didn't go unobserved and an oldergentleman did come out to chat to me :-)



they were having a coffee morning for pensioners as they do several days of the week

in a little room inside the church building and were taking a great
deal of

interestin me going aroundwith my camera.:G



I did inquire about the interior, apparently the 'church hall' was locked up

and there was nothing inside of photographic merit, just some old stones

from an old Abbey church that used to be located on the hill.

Thanks for taking the time to comment..............:|............musket.

Great clean pictures, unmistakeably "muskety". Especially like the shadow/highlight and the lines in the tower. Must have been hard to choose angles with the sloping walls and some lens distorsion at the wide end

I gave it a try as a man struggling with angels, sorry, angles. Found a vertikal referens line wich gave this result. Just another take...

Yes, a very cheerful and chatty gentleman.



If your are posting text and photo's

then you are a 'journalist' of sorts :-). As long as they don't think I'm a 'Paparazzo'

(singular term for Paparazzi) I'll be happy with that.:-)



As for pensioner morning coffee invites and free train and bus travel pass

I will have to wait until I'm 65yrs of age (2 birthdays to go yet :-)D.V)
