    Can I refer you to the post below from earlier in the month...^_^
    First one from today';s ride is a traditional church from Helmingham (St. Mary's, near Helmingham Hall) St. Mary's Church, Helmingham.jpg
    Then, at the other end of the scale this WAS the St. Cecilia's Catholic church in Trimley St. Mary (actually the replacement one as the original burnt down - info here). It was taken out of use in 2010 and is now home to a high end audio installer

    Interesting story behind this one, James IV had nearly drowned crossing the river tweed (I think he had been attacking Norham Castle) and after locals helped him out of the river he promised them a church that would be safe from fire and flood, hence the stone roof. This was the James IV that died a few years later at the battle of Flodden.

    St Ediths Monks Kirby this morning

    Large Grade I listed priory church dating from 1077. The porch is one of the oldest parts of the church and dates from the rebuilding of 1380. The tower has a fine ring of eight bells, one cast in 1390. An imposing building in a tranquil rural setting. The stained glass windows are widely acclaimed

    Clyst St George. I hadn't realised that the body of the church was destroyed in 1940, though it had already been 'Victorianised', so the tower is the only original part of the 15th-century church. Fascinating what you learn about places you thought you knew...

    It's not actually a church any more, but a private residence - the millionaires of Linton have to go to Wetherby to worship these days.

    One of today's places of work, and since the weather was actually passable - nay pleasant - for a change, I thought I'd ride the 50-mile round trip to make my one-hour presentation to a conference. You know where it is... it's a modern abbey.
