If you hadn’t gathered, it’s the nave (and mainly the ceiling) at Ely Cathedral. It’s been a few years since I last visited, it hasn’t changed much in the intervening years.

From this mornings walk…he was a very busy squirrel!


We had to pop into Chelmsford this afternoon so I popped into the Cathedral to grab today’s shot, it was a real grab and run job…but it came out OK…

A quick trot into Clavering Church today…I took loads of shots, but really didn’t like any of them, so you get this rather disappointing effort…

My eye was caught by some pretty  detail on the pulpit. Much of it was covered by a screen but I quite enjoyed the sentiment of just this part of the whole that was visible.

Sometimes I’ll take a risk, today that was one of those days, I took just two pictures…both were pretty rubbish…sorry about that 😉

Not the shot I wanted to give you for today’s image, but I’m still working on that, so, for now I give you the exteria of St Mary’s at Little Easton…more should, hopefully, follow tomorrow!

This is a very photographic church, especially when you take in all its surrounding landscape. The stormy clouds of this afternoon certainly helped give a mood to the image.

The church is in Beauchamp Roding which has a population of just 180 people so no surprise that that share their Rector with three other churches.
