A Little About Me

Welcome, my name is Lynne and I am married to Steve, we are lucky to live in a wonderful part of England call the Fens.  Where we live is just over the boarder of Cambridgeshire and into North Norfolk.

 The county of Norfolk has more churches than any other county, mostly dating from the 15th Century and there are quite a large amount of ruined remains of churches.  So with churches in Cambridgeshire and those of Norfolk I have no end of snaps to take.

 I call then snaps, because no way am I a photographer, I just love recording everything and anything that just looks interesting.  I find searching for churches takes us to different parts of the two counties that we would not normally go to.

Where we live we have the most wonderful church locations and some just a few miles from our home, but we have only just found them, now that we are looking, before we just never saw them.

We have 2 mad dogs that you might see in future snaps and a very large garden, more like a field, so that keeps us busy, when its not raining. Update 2015…..we now have 3 dogs, we rescued a small Yorkie cross, named Eddie, who is just adorable 🙂 Update 2016….we now have 4 dogs, we rescued Toffee a 15 week Pomeranian puppy, who is such a cutie 🙂  They are all lovely dogs, all in their own special ways.

Update 2014.

Just to say thank you to everyone who leaves a comment on my post, it is very much appreciated.

You might just notice that Scotland has had a lot of posts, this is because I really only found Scotland and its wonderful islands about 4 years ago.  I am trying to visit as many islands on the west coast as I can, not that easy when you only have 2 weeks a year, but I’m working on it.  The east coast is not so bad, as we visit a lot due to our work, and its just as beautiful but in a different way.  Also there are now quite a few postings of Wales, as this is another part of the UK that we like to explore.  In fact we really like to explore the whole of the UK, so much history to see.

 We visit Wales every year to visit family and have a holiday….. What I love about Wales is its greenness and secret valleys, with each area different than its neighbour, just on a smaller scale than Scotland.

I have also started to post black & white photos, mainly for a series that I started called ‘Occupations’.  It has now become quite addictive and I am on the constant look out for different occupations and enjoying every moment of it 🙂

Update 2015

This year we went to America for my nieces wedding and then we visited New England and some of the Islands.  I wanted to keep a journal of the visit, as we saw some amazing things and visited some wonderful places.

Thank you to anyone who wants to give me an award, I do appreciate it, but I am an award free blog and I am quite happy if someone just likes or even better leaves comment, thank you 🙂

  1. Hi Lynne! I’ve really been enjoying all your recent photos of Scotland, and I’m glad to see that you can always find awesome places to travel to. I don’t know if you saw, but I recently started a series on my blog explaining various aspects of gargoyles and grotesques. I was wondering if you might be willing to let me use a few of your wonderful gargoyle photos in my next few posts. Of course, I would credit you and link back to you and thank you profusely in each post. Would that be ok? Thanks! Alexandra

    1. Hi Alexandra, yes that would be fine, I saw your first post about them and I found it very interesting. Glad you have been enjoying the tour of Scotland 🙂 Lynne

  2. I’m writing a book that I hope to have published soon on my mother’s family, and I would like to know if I may have permission to use the photo of St. Wendreda’s church for my book, as many baptisms and marriages in my mother’s family took place there. My email address: stlambert1@yahoo.com, my name is Shelby Lambert, and I my book is titled “The Children of Peter and Frances Asplin”. Thank you so much

  3. Hi Lynne I’m just updating you to let you know I have just completed a watercolour of St Mary’s church from your beautiful photo and it has been accepted to be exhibited for the Lincolnshire Churches Art Competition. I do hope I have done your photo of the church justice and would be pleased to show you how it looks. What’s the best way of sending an image of the watercolour to you? Also I would like to acknowledge your photo with the information provided about the painting and welcome your guidance on how you would like me to mention you. With best wishes Caroline.

  4. Hi Lynne,

    I have enjoyed reading some of your blogs about your travels!

    I am currently undertaking research based around the conservation of stone monuments for my PhD. You have visited 2 of sculptured stone sites that I am currently collecting data from – Kilmartin and Lismore – and so I wondered if you would be willing to answer a few questions about your visits to these sites?

    If you’re interested in participating then I would be happy to send you more information about my project.

    Best wishes,

    1. Hi Katie,
      Glad you have enjoyed some of the posts. I have just come back from Scotland and found a few more. Anyway, I am quite happy to answer any questions, if I can.
      Best wishes,

      1. Hi Lynne,

        Your recent trip to Scotland looked great – your photos really showed off how beautiful the Isle of Skye is!

        Also, thanks very much for getting back to me and for agreeing to participate! What is the best email address for me to send a questionnaire over to you?

        Best wishes,

  5. Dear Lynne, what wonderful photos! You have a real eye for beauty in stained glass! I’m a guide at Exeter Cathedral, and I am willing to share some helpful information if I may? My details are attached below. Kind regards STUART

  6. Saw your reference to Belvoir Angels these seem to originate in the Village of Owthorpe Nottinghamshire and may have something to do with St Margaret of Antioch who has a church dedicated to her in this village she provided patronage to the dying. Vale of Belvoir an area that straddles Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire and Lincolnshire.
    There are more than 250 UK churches bearing her name mostly just called St Margarets

    1. Thank you Graham for the interesting comment, I will have to have a look at Owthorpe, it sounds very interesting. Also I will do some research into St Margaret. Regards, Lynne
