Amazing bat wings on a Church so high

Looks like the whole thing may even fly!

I love the way you see things Bonnie Lad! :)))

The old part of this church is of Norman origin apparently, and was only a 'single cell' - just the nave. The extension is gorgeous inside, as is the original church. The architects did a fine job in my opinion - but clearly didn't think about bats in the belfry.

Your comment leads me to question the whereabouts of the Wee Book!

Latest on WEEbook,

they wanted my input on cover design as they could not come up with a good suggestion (they were I don't know how many!) I suggested taking all 37 photos from book, minimise them and make a collage for the cover 0 they said that would leave blank spaces, so I said PUT THE BLEEDIN' TITLE IN IT!

EXASPERATED WITH PROFESSIONALS i AM!

:D

So - it's nearly finished then?

Hm. What a strange building. I guess it must be a sight looking out from those windows.

Thank you A.Yepi. The old and the new go well together, I think the architect has been clever!

Good morning dear ♥Fairy♥, it does look a bit strange I admit, but I have taken the photo from a strange angle. The square tower leads to the nave of the church and was built in the 11th century. The church became too small for the congregation, and this new bit was added fairly recently.

If you look out of the windows - you can see the graveyard!

The flint-stone in the walls is very typical of this region, and the main body of the old church is also covered in flint.

Ok, I had the idea the windows might be coloured. You know, as in the old churches.

The old part of the church has stained glass windows, but here in the new part, the windows are quite plain! I might post another couple of photos to let you see inside the church :))

That would be nice. Thank you :)
