    Miserable Saturday afternoon, a chance to do some bike miles regardless of the weather. The following pictures ( a bit over exposed to compensate for the poor light) feature Blatherwycke church which is surrounded by Yew trees and old buildings that survived the demolition of the grand house that stood here until it was demolished soon after the end of the Second World war. The second church and another B is at Bulwick, 20180203_142252.jpg

    You need to look closely, but All Saints Church in Saxton is there almost in the middle of the pic:

    Definitely not Devon. A cathedral with a long history: Die, in south east France. And a rusty Dawes.

    St mary's Church Cubbington, on my way back today


    St Mary's Cubington.jpg



    Built of local red sandstone, the church consists of an ashlar chancel, nave, 12thc. rubble-work W tower, and N and S aisles. The tower has one round-headed window with a plain, restored lintel. The S arcadeto the nave and the font are 12thc. The S aisle itself is said to be 13thc. The S wall of the nave was raised to allow the clerestory windows to be inserted (church guide).

    East Berholt is famous in bell ringing circles for having its bells in a frame at ground level, rung by pulling directly on the wheel rather than by rope. Blooming dangerous.

    I knew you'd want to know that. :smile:

    I think it might not actually be a church, but 1) it's got religious stuff over the door and a bell thingy, 2) it's at a place called Ime de val Brian, and 3) I don't care, because of 2)

    It looks like a Chapel, which is close enough

    This one's definitely a church, though it's not named after me. St Benoit-en-Diois. I've cycled past it dozens of times, but never been up to it before today.
