I love to see a nice church. Though I’m not religious churches are part of our history and culture here in England. Many of course have historical stories behind them and are in lovely settings. The real reason I like to see them is because they are man made, using skills, knowledge and sciences. They may be buildings of faith but man takes the full credit for the construction of them. To me they are just a building of beauty, some these days are what’s called ‘listed buildings’ and cannot be demolished because of their age but thankfully are used for other purposes, one in nearby Nottingham is actually a pub now, many country ones have been converted to houses. Here’s a selection of some local ones I recently photographed.
