Alstonefield, Staffordshire – St Peter (again, for Lockdown Chronicles)

On Tuesday 31 August Caroline (our church administrator) was back after a week away, so we had a couple of hours trying to sort out where on earth we are! Then we drove north to High Peak Bookshop as Julie wants pictures for her blog – books and lunch. She was quite chuffed to find this book as her review is mentioned in its blurb.

We had a beautiful drive through to Alstonefield and, like the last time I visited, struggled to find St Peter’s church. It’s on an earlier blog –

Disabled access through the west door and a good exhibition to look round. “The Isolation Chronicles” by Sue Prince, artist. Her website is – the paintings have been published in two books. Her pictures are a fascinating record of the last horrendous year – of the normality, the boringness, the incompetence and evil of those in authority, and the wonderful work of so many. It was great to see them all.

I also enjoyed the Cotton pew, the pulpit and the woodwork again.

There were good refreshments too, rather special china, and we had a chat to Carrie (one of our fellow students). They have had a goodly number of visitors to the exhibition, and I was glad we had made the effort to attend.
