I have always wondered why Saints have such unconventional parents. Who would name their child Alkmund? ;)

My sister Werburgh was saying the same thing to me only the other day!

Thanks, Rom@nce for your visit - your interest in English churches knows no bounds! I'll try & go back to Shrewsbury on Friday, but the weather's set to be cloudy, so I may not get good enough light, but fingers crossed! Thanks so much as always for your visit & your comment.

Very glad you liked it, inessa - thanks for dropping by!!

Michael, thanks for noticing the dual windows - that's what struck me. Thanks for visiting.

If you count the window in the reflection it's even more complex! Ad that complexity is part of its beauty. Lovely shot, Sarah.
