J'aime beaucoup ses formes.
Alan: It stands proudly on a hilltop.
I like that this one has a steeple - it looks more church like than some that have the square castle looking thing... I know that's just my American ignorance showing, but...
Alan: I have never understood isf there is any significance in that some churches have towers where other have spires and why some churches have towers with a steeple on it! I do know that Salisbury Cathedral's spire is the tallest in the country.

Quite different to a lot of Victorian structures
Alan: It is a significant landmark in the area situated on a hilltop with a commanding view across the bay. Although the church was open, it was a like a black cat in a coal cellar and I could barely see anything inside.
It is a very handsome church Alan
Alan: Quite different from the churches in the heart of the Lake District.
Interesting shape at the east end for the chancel, and I like the stonework.
Alan: The stonework is quite different to that found on churches in the heart of the Lakes.
A bit further west than where I get to in Cumbria.
Alan: Bottom lefthand corner, Tom smile

Nice one with its graveyard.
Alan: It's an usual church for the Lake District; quite different to those in the heart of the Lakes.
This church has pleasing proportions. I like your composition with the gravestones in the foreground.
