What makes it particularly lovely is its quaintness, with many people saying it looks like a hybrid medieval house/chapel. It was actually an outreach church in its heyday, commonly known as a chapel of ease, serving parishioners who could not attend its larger sibling in the next village.
I took several photos and had immense trouble deciding which one to use. Then I remembered I didn’t have to pick just one! So I have narrowed it down to my favourite two and here they are.
The first photo is the more typical postcard shot of a quintessential medieval English church. It may not be big, but it is beautiful. I wanted to photograph the much grander interior as well, but sadly it wasn’t open during my visit this afternoon.
I chose the second one because I loved how Sprogdaddy and the boy are holding hands in it. The comparative size of the building adds a dramatic sense of scale. I may not be religious, but I never fail to be awed by such incredible architecture.
