St Bartholomew's Church (and Benchmark)

 Binley, Coventry


Easter Sunday Afternoon


Follow this path to enter the church on your left.
Just to the right of the entrance (behind a camelia bush) level with the step
you will find a chiselled horizontal mark known as a survey benchmark and bolt.
This is an elevation reference point.  I love finding them.
Click on the link and you'll see a few more in and around Coventry HERE.

 Good morning all.

Five of Seven

 Coombe Country Park


Photo taken just outside Coombe Abbey Hotel.

I could only get 5 of 7 cygnets into the frame.  

I don't think it will be long before these are big swans.

I am a returning blogger and I promise that it won't be long

before I share photographs from in and around Coventry,

not just at Coombe Country Park (as beautiful and entertaining as it is).

Bear with :).
