Roof Angels Galore


This is one of my favourite churches for roof angels, St John the Bapist, Stamford in Lincolnshire.   I cannot go pass without popping in to take some shots, so here are some more to add to the others.  It depends on the time of day, and they are quite high, as to the standard of the photos, but I really just like taking photos of them.  On this visit I did find some lovely pew ends, I actually looked down for once.

St Nicholas Church, Addlethorpe, Lincolnshire

In 2016 we had a long week-end in Lincolnshire, and I’ve come across a few photos of churches that I haven’t posted, so I have a feeling a few Lincolnshire churches will be posted quite soon, before they get too out of date.  Unfortunately the church of St Nicholas in Addlethrope was closed, it was late in day.  Reading up on the church, I will have to return, as they have an angel roof, also the church is grade 1 listed, and there is plenty to see.

Some info……Dedicated to St. Nicholas, the church is a splendid example of medieval architecture in the Perpendicular style, being built between 1360 and 1420 and Grade 1 listed. The interior retains much of its original woodwork and fittings including the “Angel Roof”.

Angel Heads

I came across this group of angel headstones while sorting through church photos and thought how good they looked grouped together.  I’m not sure if they are the same family, it is possible they are, as the gravestones seem the same.  I found them in St Andrew’s Churchyard in Great Dunham, Suffolk, a church I have yet to post, but I’m working on it.

Angels On High

I haven’t posted any Roof Angels for a while, so here are the Roof Angels of St John The Baptist in Stamford, Lincolnshire.  We visit this church quite a lot and I never get fed up of taking ‘Roof Angel Photos’ and some friends 🙂



Nativity Window No 3

When we visited Rochester Cathedral in 2016, I found a couple of beautiful Nativity stained glass windows.  I decided to keep them for Christmas, so glad I did, as I haven’t had time to go looking for any this year.  Both husband and I have a very ill parent each at the moment, unfortunately they both live at different ends of the country.  We are doing a lot of travelling, but not a lot of camera work, so for once I am so please that I take far too many photos, I will never moan again about having too many……I was meant to 🙂
