The Long Good Friday Part 4 – Epilogue

The Long Good Friday Part 4 – Epilogue

Last visit of the day was to the church of St Mary’s at Cumwhitton. I was met at the entrance to the village by a rare sight these days, a traditional red British telephone box. These used to be a common sight throughout the UK but now they tend to be (ab)used by banks for […]

The Long Good Friday Pt 3, Armathwaite

The Long Good Friday Pt 3, Armathwaite

Continuing along through the Cumbrian countryside I left Calthwaite and headed back under the motorway and back up to the little village of Armathwaite, home to the Fox and Pheasant pub. A place I must admit I have spent many hours in eating fantastic pub fayre and drinking the odd real ale or two. Parking […]

The Long Good Friday (hey, there could be a film in this)

Second on my Good Friday visits was to All Saints church in the little village of Calthwaite. Just a short journey down the road from Hesket and under the M6 motorway, we go by the main West Coast rail line and across the river. I have played and sung (I’m a singer in another life) […]

Let Us Pray (for some nice light)

Just under a year ago I found a great little subject to photograph, Cumbrian village churches. I even wrote a blog page on it Little Churches. The effect was interesting for me. There will be no money in it, there will be a lot of hard work and research for it, there will be those […]

Who Put The Lights Out?

Yes, I know it’s not two minutes since my last post but I thought I’d just drop another one in the bank while I’m in the mood. I was off to another Rotary event in Keswick and, for a change, the sun was shining. I really don’t know what the magic is about the hills […]

Little Churches

Little Churches

It never ceases to amaze me as I travel around this little island they call Britain just how wonderfully diverse it really is. Geologically it’s one of the most varied pieces of land on the planet with many different types of rock formations formed over millions of years from volcanos, glaciers, sedentary processes and all […]
