David, one of my churchwardens, wanted a chat – so we had it en route to the Tip. We came home via St Mary’s Boulton, where they are opening the church on a regular basis. We had visited this church on a previous occasion, but here are some new photos.
The lych gate is a War Memorial.
This time we entered through the south door – C13 porch with Norman tympanum. Interesting font, vase, not sure what it is.
The church is open, and people are visiting regularly. They are doing a Prayer Week, working with local schools – and have some great ideas and resources.
I do like this window.
I climbed up to the balcony, and found their crib. We have a German Market in Allestree in November, and I will be organising a display of cribs in church. I will be in touch to borrow it – and thank them for their welcome today.
