Great English Churches - guestbook





Comments:
I forgot to mention in my last comment. The churches that are worth a visit and have famous occupants in the grounds are: All Saints Church- Hursley (Oliver Cromwell's son Richard), St Margaret's- West Wellow Florence Nightingale), All Saints Church- Minstead ( Sir Arthur Conan Doyle) and All Saints Church- Little Sombourne(Thomas Sopwith). Little Sombourne Church is Saxon and mentioned in the Doomsday Book. Thank you again for your very interesting blog and I am glad I came across it and could spend hours reading it.

I came across your website/blog by chance. What a wonderful site and the history and photographs are wonderful. I like your comments made me smile a few times. I will use your blog as reference when we visit other churches around the country.
My partner and myself love visiting churches and have visited many churches in Hampshire( all of the ones you have listed)and may I mention a few you may like to visit if your ever in Hampshire again. They are all lovely examples of Saxon/ Norman Churches, but have a few famous persons buried in the grounds, such as : Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Florence Nightingale, Thomas Sopwith - Famous Aviator and Oliver Cromwell's son Richard. We have also visited a few of the churches mentioned in your blog in other parts of the country too.

Admin reply: Ah, I'm glad I make you smile sometimes! That's quite deliberate. Most books about churches are so po-faced, aren't they? Unlike the masons who built them, for example, who I'm sure were a boisterous and irreverent lot! regards Lionel

I came across your website today whilst looking for information about Saxon features of churches in Northamptonshire. A fascinating site, I have been browsing through it for a couple of hours. Plenty of information about so many churches. Great.

Admin reply: Thank you, Robert.

Dear Webmaster,

Thank you for this wonderful site.

I just wanted to say that the lady driving the tractor, who showed you the way to Heath chapel on the weather side of the Brown Clee, was probably M*. who lives in an old, large, white house overlooking probably the most marvellous view in Shropshire, and possibly the world if you happen to hold such a prejudice!

Heath sits on a plateau just below the Nordy Ring Hill Fort and looks over Corvedale, Wenlock Edge and onwards towards The Long Mynd, and the wild hills of Wales. The chapel is still used regularly, especially for festivals and fairs which get organised by word of mouth and joint consensus and just sort of 'appear'. It's cared for and loved and shared.

Other strange and simple churches nearby-ish are at Upton Cresset (near to the Hall but beware the politician) and Linley, which is tucked away off an old coach road (now unpaved) off the B4373 between Bridgnorth and Broseley.

With kind regards.

Admin reply: Hi Don. That was one of the surreal moments we experience sometimes. M* was our saviour because we must have passed the church three times without seeing it. Do mention it to her! I love Heath Church. God loves churches like that, I think. regards Lionel

I can only echo Mr Cornely from Florida and say what a magnificent site you have - a true labour of love. Our parish churches are unique and tell us so much of our past and those who worshipped there, and it is wonderful to come across a person such as yourself who, via your website, keeps their stories alive.

Admin reply: Thank you, Sue. I can't tell you how rewarding this website is to write, and wonderfulc comments like your make it all worth while. regards Lionel

Although I've barely chipped the surface of your wonderful website, I want to offer most grateful appreciation for your work and thoughtful comments. The architecture is absolutely amazing and buildings speak so fluently, yet without a sound. It was really exciting for me, as an organist, to see the beautiful instruments that are a part of the buildings and have been maintained so carefully over time. Visiting English churches is the only item in my "bucket" with a few pilgrimage buildings such as Kings, York, Beverly and Canterbury. Again, thanks for all the work you do and have done.

Admin reply: Thank you, Bruce. I do hope you get to make that trip. Beverley has wonderful misericords at both the Minster and the parish church. Do make sure you visit both! kind regards Lionel
