Admin reply: Hi Sapit. I have had more email about Jarrow's county than for any other subject! I realise it is a mistake to ascribe it to Northumberland but to re-assign it would be a major undertaking affecting the whole structure of the site. I might have to think about putting a note on the page to that effect. I wouldn't, though, have put it under "Tyne & Wear" anyway, but under County Durham. No disrespect to those that live and work there but I see it as one of those "contrived" counties invented for local government purposes with little regard to geographical and historical tradition; of whihc you have so much in the North East. Regards Lionel

You may care to look at the film An Artist Looks At Churches in which the Artist John Piper examines one church for each century - starting with Kilpeck. I'd give a link, but you don't allow it!

Admin reply: Hello, John. Thanks for this. I'm a great fan of John Piper.I'd never heard of the film although I've now found references to it on the web. Do you know if it is obtainable anywhere? By the way, it's my software that bans links, not myself. It's partly to stop the occasional loony who want to post on here, I think. regards Lionel

I have been working in winterborne kingston and drove past the sign to the tiny church in Tomson so many times. This morning I was early and decided to venture down. It was so fascinating to see this little 12th century wonder, but even more delightful to be able to see inside, after finding your website upon getting back to the office. Your prose is excellent and the tone and detail in your writing lovely. Thank you.

Admin reply: I'm so glad you got to see it, Liesel. It's a lovely spot and a very spiritual little place. Thank you for your kind words. Lionel

So pleased to have found your site. It is a welcome supplement to Betjeman and Jenkins, the County Guide, etc. We share a lot of opinions.
I sent you an email which I hope has not been caught by your spam filter, about the Mary Webb book and Aunt Hucknall.
Thanks for all your work.

Admin reply: REALLY? How nice. Were you a pupil? He's a heck of a man, isn't he? Even if he did tan my backside three times! He won't remember me, of course, but if you could point him at the website and my little tribute I'd really appreciate it. Thanks for the info about Lastingham.

I love your entry about St German's Church in south-east Cornwall. Few churches can have had such a history: Celtic monastery, Saxon cathedral, Norman priory, recent Parish church and now a Priory again! Your Cornish list doesn't include the wonderful parish church of Tintagel, one of the few to retain it's original Norman crucifix form - can it be included later on?

Admin reply: Hi Jane. I would love to include Tintagel at some time. Unfortunately i can only devote so much time to church visiting so when i can get round to visiting it is anybody's guess. St German's is such a treasure, isn't it? kind regards Lionel

Admin reply: Thank you, Martin. I am alway happy to write about churches that other writers have overlooked - see, for example, a recent Guestbook entry from a lady in Tebay. So many people love their churches and put so much effort into them. One of the joys of doing the website just as a hobby is that you can write about what you darened well like! regards Lionel
