St Giles Church

From Derbyshire UK:

St Gile’s church lies in the grounds of Calke Abbey. The earliest reference to a church on this site is in 1129 when it was seized from Calke Priory by the Abbot of Chester.

It was rebuilt in 1826 with a narrow tower and embattled nave.

    You know me, Cherry: I’m a glutton for these old churches. I especially like the second image, looking out the door.

    It’s the second one! I remember taking a similar one iupon a hill in Wales, with both wings open(ed).

    Great shot through the doorway. A bit different & more interesting with only one door open. The photo reminds me of someone else’s style :-)
