All Saints' Church, Leek Wootton




I was in search of thatched cottages today.
Not only did I find a couple but I also
discovered the impressive
All Saints' Church in the village of Leek Wootton.



It is a beautiful church with an extraordinary cemetery along side.


The church was closed.  I have so many questions. 
It is a 'must' that I return.  So this posting is 'to be continued'.

I will also try and get a better photo of the the main entrance.
I like the shadows of the tree but .... :).


Participating in Our World Tuesday

PS  Happy Birthday, Lisa

What an interesting place. Love that last shot with the tree shadows... and yours!

Great photos of the church! I like this kind of old, english architecture. It's majestetic and beautiful, and very contrastful to norwegian architecture. Here such buildings are mostly built in wood, and most time in a lesser size.

Greetings!

The country churches in England always look so interesting and charming. I started to say that they are MORE interesting and charming than ours, then I remembered all of those white churches with tall steeples in New England. I will declare it a tie!

Quaint old buildings.

Gorgeous shots, Lauren. I find myself drawn to the details of the gate at the entrance, and to those carvings at the sides. You must go in some time.

It looks very attractive. And with all the rain you all have had, the grass is a lovely shade of green!

That's exactly how I have pictured an Anglican church in the English countryside. Beautiful. Yes, go back. I'd love to see the interior.
