It was a cold bright day, the first day of this year
the sun was shining brightly
Reached there and saw this lovely if a rather forbidding church
looks a bit like a castle
nice structures I suppose
but the gray bricks and stone cladding…hmmm
The copper sheathing…
So this is the church of St. Joseph
The entrance has some lovely sculptures on both sides of the door and on top
A bit lopsided.
But does look imposing.
Another church in the distance
Another statue on the wall of the Virgin and the Baby
these look so interesting..
so I enter into the park
its a lovely place
with ducks on the pond, and its new years day! cold as heck
a tiny stream…
we specialise in this no?
the red leaves look almost like fishes
its almost like a Japanese garden…
I have been looking for a stone which symbolises my garden for a long time now. something like this one.
I just love how the trees are framed against the skies
that’s how this little park looks
the park has been formed out of the combined grounds of 5 erstwhile houses, and then these 29 acres were donated to the council in 1889.
during the war, this was converted into allotments as part of the Dig for Victory campaign
