Blossom and blue sky in an English heaven
Under an English heaven - blossom and blue sky at Chelmarsh, near Bridgnorth.
St Peter’s Church, which dates from the 14th century, has been described as one of the finest pieces of medieval architecture in Shropshire.
It replaced an earlier church on the same site, and evidence of its Norman origins can still be seen today.
The north aisle has a blocked Norman doorway, and the bowl of the font is from the same period.
At one time the church was thought to be connected by an underground passageway to Chelmarsh Hall, a former granary that became a sanctuary for monks.
I hadn't planned this shot, but was driving past and just had to stop!
