End of…….


As the Sun Goes Down, Ravenglass, Cumbria

The Rivers Mite and Irt join the Esk and flow into the Irish Sea over the Drigg Dunes

The END of a Day, the end of the Weekend, the end of the Week

and the end of the Month…..Just where have 7 months of our year disappear to ?

Sunday…..So Off to Church


The Church of Saint Andrew, Naunton, Gloucestershire

Naunton is the quintessential Cotswold Village, not large, just a cluster of cottages, Manor House and a Medieval Dove Cote even a small river, The Windrush flowing through.

At its centre is the village Church of Saint Andrew and like the rest of the villages in the Cotswolds it is built of that famous glowing Cotswold Gold Stone.


Dating back to the 1200’s the church has enjoyed renovations at various times since then, notably in the 1500’s and then the 1800’s

One fairly unique feature of Saint Andrews is outside on the tower where visitors come to admire the two medieval ‘sundials’…


If you do visit Naunton and this lovely village church….pleased don’t forget to close the Lych Gate behind you…..
