We had to see Diya’s Ballet show, so after dropping her off at the hall for her to get dressed, we went for a walkabout till the show began. Warning, loads of pics in here, so skip it if you dont have time or scroll quickly
The construction of the church is interesting. Worked stone with a flint based mortar filling in the middle. The historians have traced the beginning of this church back to roman times.
Another iron railing but this one is much more devastated by time.
Somebody was buried here a very long time back. But the grave stone has now started to slough off stone or has tilted on the side or has sunk down. We dont know who is buried here.
More graves. One with only EC written on it. How curious.
Interesting. I didnt know about the Hawthornden Prize.
Bushy tailed, eh?
And curiously, an orthodox depiction of the Virgin and Jesus.
The other wall is bare but in some places, it has old wall frescos.
See what i mean? I was standing there, imagining the painter, painting these lovely warm fresco’s, all those hundreds of years back.
