Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

Yesterday, I showed you the exterior of the remarkable church at Booton, a huge Gothic inspired building, situated on the outskirts of the tiny village. No wonder it was locally called the Cathedral in the Fields, for it is a huge church for such a tiny settlement.

Today, I will give you some internal details.
It was difficult to decide which to post as the main one but I will show the others as workshops so you may decide.

This window is full of angels, delighting the congregation, as musicians. They are said to be drawn from the life - that is to say, from the faces of the not inconsiderable number of 'blessed girls', young women to whom Elwin (the Vicar and the designer of the church) was the affectionate counsellor, as the guidebook politely puts it. They are very lovely - you can see why he might have been tempted to seek their company.

There are other angels though not as easy to see. You need to look upwards and let your eyes become accustomed to the dim light where you will then see carved angels decorating the roof.
(See my workshop)

Have a lovely Sunday, Bev :-)
