Little Church by the Pool

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

The Church of St. Chad, Lichfield, Staffordshire, England. This is a cropped and enlarged image of my wider view posted much earlier here. It was taken from the turret of the main spire of Lichfield Cathedral and looks across Stowe Pool. We held my Mum's funeral there a few days earlier.

More Lichfield photographs are here.

  • What a stunning scene. That church must be centuries old. Judging by the people about, it's a popular walk.

Thanks, Stuart. Some parts of the building date from the twelfth century.

I'm really looking forward to visiting places like this later this year. One of the reasons I love GE and Panoramio - you get a feel for places of interest.

There is no shortage of old buildings in Europe, Stuart. Where are you going?

Very nice place and photo!


Greetings, Petar

Thanks Petar! Sometimes an elevated camera position helps with composition.

Now listen Roger! You're blowing your rules into the weeds.. and pleasing us in the so-doing.

Leaving in two weeks. We'll be well south of here in London and Devon, before a week in Paris.

Stuart, make sure you take plenty of memory cards for the camera! How long will you be over there?

Roger Powell on August 21, 2013

Thanks Jock. This beautiful little time-waster was where my Mum's funeral was held, a few days earlier. :( so it merits a break of my own rules. I will find excuses for the other ones you may find too.
