Thanks Richard, sorry I haven't any interior pictures to hand. It has been locked up the last few times I have been there - I may have a few pics from a previous visit a few years ago but I cannot find the files - they may have gotten themselves deleted.

Here is an interesting link on the area from when that war-faring Dutch lot (sorry I meant our European cousins:-)) caught us with our trousers down - so to speak!-?

https://en.wikipedia.o​rg/wiki/Raid_on_the_Me​dway (external link)

One interesting story of the church (I cannot find reference to it at the moment to substantiate) was that a Dutch ship moored nearby and the marauding crew went ashore to see what they could plunder and damaged the church doors - the Dutch captain was so incensed by his crew's behaviour he sent his carpenter ashore with the offenders to make good the repairs.

Thanks Ray. Certainly be an interesting interior to poke about in.

Fascinating history.
It reads more like a parody of comedies
Don't engage them in a fight, just show them up, pinch the key ship and tow it home.
It appears you lot did it to them in the first place.
Sounds like the government of the day didn't want to spend any money.

Who needed Shakespeare and the other early writers, just invite your friends from across the channel and document the events :-P
You got any more funny, er interesting historical interludes :-P

Hoo St Werburgh Church. Hoo Peninsula. Kent.

Beautiful stonework there Ray.
Interesting reading those buried
One name is known here, well by those in the know :-)
Thomas Aveling the well known Industrialist, based in Strood. A pioneer manufacturer of steam traction engines

Lovely series of photos of these churches.

That's a lovely church Ray and the floor is very impressive. It must have been quite a wealthy place to have those polished marble slabs like that?

It's a shame about the pews, but even Malmesbury Abbey has had them removed and would you believe that one of the activities they have had in there was skate boarding :eek:
I believe that some high church bodies were not amused :eek: . I don't think that Big G would have worried too much though to see children enjoying themselves?

Well, John, I am sure big G would have said get them kids out in the fresh air before they ruin my Grade 1 listed house. After all, if you had a 1000+ year old house that had cost mega bucks to maintain, would you let all the local kids in to damage it?-?
They do like to do some trendy things sometimes. :-)

It seems all of our defences were asleep and the government of the day had taken their eye off the ball - the government were probably all having a good old boozing session at No 10 and all the forts were undermanned. Funny old thing though, the reports don’t seem to mention that heads rolled or anyone was strung up from the yard arm. Unusual for those days.-?

Thomas Aveling, yes, I was surprised to discover that blast from the past - similarly, I was photographing a memorial in an old churchyard in Dartford and I come across a neglected tombstone bearing the name of Richard Trevithick - the pioneer of steam locomotion - you will find the reference in this link:-

Have a good read. :-)

I posted similar church images a few years ago and recently made the road trip again. It was really a trip to get some BBQ, but with the Churches and a Brewery along the route, it turned into Grade A day. These are the Painted Churches in Texas.

From a quick search:
In the late 1800s and early 1900s, the Czech and German immigrants who settled the Hill Country built a collection of beautiful churches, replicas of the ones they’d left behind in Europe—and today, the painted churches of Texas are some of the most noteworthy attractions in the state. There are more than 20 painted churches in Texas, with many listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

I suppose I should show them in color for full beauty, but there is always something magic to me about light and shadow in an empty and silent church. Hope you enjoy!

Very nice series GlimmerMan. I think the last picture would look nice in colour for comparison. Thanks.

I think the colour adds a whole new dimension to the already excellent photos you posted earlier.


There are many answers to question.

Thanks Glimmer, I think the colour shots do bring a whole new dimension as Pippan says.
I do love the nostalgic grey scale, though, and you seem to have got the conversion as good as it gets - very reminiscent of my old Leica film black and whites. - but I like your colour interpretation better. The colour bring some warmth into the pictures.
Ten out of ten for both versions.:-). Thank you.
