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.

I last visited this church a couple of years ago during my last 365 project so I thought I’d see what, if any, changes had happened since my last visit.

I arrived shortly before sunset and as I walked from the car towards the church I could hear music playing and assumed it must be someone playing the organ. As I got closer I realised it was someone playing the clarinet…it was really very pleasant.


Chalkney Church

This was one of my first attempts to shoot with my ultra wide angle lens. I found it very difficult to use to start with, but I’m getting the hang of it now!.

This is a shot taken inside Chalkney Church, now disused but maintained by the Churches Con­ser­va­tion Trust.

Welcome to St Mary’s Church, Elsenham

Wow, it’s been almost a week since I last posted, sorry about that – don’t forget – I post every day on my 366 project.

Today’s picture is of the entrance to the Norman Church at Elsenham – St Mary’s.

Looking down the nave at Ely Cathedral

Continuing our look back at Ely Cathedral, here we look down the nave towards the altar (and the Octagon Tower).

The Key to the Octagon Tower

Back between Christmas and New Year I visited Ely Cathedral and took this shot of the key to the Octagon Tower – well worth a visit…

Great Dunmow Parish Church in the Snow

Sticking with the recent snow – here’s a shot of St Mary’s in Great Dunmow first thing in the morning after the snowfall.

St Marys Parish Church, Great Dunmow in the snow

Looking from the east end of the Cathedral, effectively at the rear of the altar you can see right down the Cathedral to the West Tower and main entrance. A quite magnificent view, but the word “opulent” sticks in my mind – can that be right?
