Playing hooky

Here are some of the pictures I took at Catworth Church when I took a short break from teaching. Its clearly an old church site as the list of rectors attests!

1239 is the earliest name!

There are gargoyles and a small spire, and clerestory windows that flooded the interior with light.

A beautiful stained glass window above the altar with a stunning combination of reds with turquoise blue.

There were framed photographs on the wall of a set of textile treasures: embroidered ecclesiastical cushions, dating from the fourteenth Century, now I suppose to fragile to be on display.

The font was very plain, but the rood screen old and interesting.
