It is Sunday and perhaps appropriately I have been sorting through the files for a project needing images of Churches…or rather Religious buildings through the ages. It really is amazing just how many and just how varied they are across the UK.
Some are called Abbeys, others Cathedrals or maybe Chapel or simply Church. Nor does the name Abbey or Cathedral imply extra grandeur as even the smallest church can at time rival the large Cathedral for its architectural splendour. Even when they are in ruins they are still able to convey there social message
So here are just a few to give you a taste of that variety we have acquired through the ages and some that have survived times of strife across the UK
Everyone tells a story…a story that may well be just of Local interest, others of National importance but all interweaved over nearly 2 millennia.
