Church Photography

Christmas In St John The Baptist, Stamford, Lincolnshire

Every year we visit The Church of St John The Baptist in Stamford, Lincolnshire.  They have a Christmas card and decorations sale inside the church each year, also lots of dressed Christmas trees, which makes the church very colourful on a cold grey day.  Just a few photos from last years visit 2016.

 

Rest Awhile

A busy day of Christmas shopping, I think I have crossed all off my list, just as well, as they have forecasted that we will have about eight inches of snow tomorrow, Sunday.  Ha ha….. if thats happens then most of the UK will come to a grinding halt…….so hope its just a sprinkling.  We popped into a church today, but unlike the one in the photo, you couldn’t rest on a pew, due to a Christmas tree festival in progress, and pews, make nice shelves for sitting small Christmas trees on.  

The photo of the pews are in St Peter’s Church in Walpole St Peter, Norfolk, taken last year 2016.  If by chance we do have a heavy downfall of snow, husband has said he will drive me to St Peter’s, so I can take some snow photos of the exterior, and get some interior photos of the church dressed for Christmas this year 2017 🙂

The Old Church Chest

I love these old medieval church chests, at one time they would have held all the church records, but thats going back about five hundred years ago.  Now this one is used for lovely Christmas decorations in St Peter’s Church in Walpole St Peter, Norfolk.  You will see a few more Christmas posts from this delightful church…….I took way too many last year, and I never like to waste photos 🙂

Christmas Wreath

This beautiful Christmas wreath, is attached to very ancient wooden door, which stands in the corner of St Peter’s Church in Walpole St Peter, Norfolk.  If you look closely, you will see the delicate carving in the wood, which to me looks like the shape of some of the stain glass windows around the church.

Nativity Window – No 1

 

Each Christmas I try to post some Nativity Stain Glass Windows, unfortunately they are becoming fewer, as I now have to go further a field for them.  I did save a few for this Christmas and this is a lovely window which you can find in St Michel & All Angels Church in Middlewich, Cheshire.
