Great Site! Well done. Might be worth you linking up with other groups who are trying to get HLF support to co-ordinate this kind of information. I am an architect on the Leicester Diocese and I will bring their attention to this stirling bit of work. I look after Melbourne church and you have encouraged me to go and look more. Keep it up. Excellent photos. The resolution is fine as I know how difficult it is shooting interiors.
Best wishes. :)

Admin reply: Keith,

Thank you so much for your heartening comments. I don't seem to be coming up on Google as yet sadly so I am assuming that the url was forwarded by a friend?

regards

Lionel

What a mammoth task you've set yourselves and what a superb start you've made. 30 down, several hundred (or thousands) to go! Beautiful photograps and wonderfully informative text.

Since I've been with you when you've visited and photographed several beautiful (and some not quite so beautiful!) Romanesque churches in Charente and Charente-Maritime, I look forward to seeing you expand the site to include French churches.

A true labour of love. Congratulations to you both. Bon courage, mes amis!

Admin reply: Thanks, Keith. There is an earthly and unadorned simplicity about the Charente churches, though, and I do intend to post a couple in due course ("Trois Palis"?). I will be adding Barfreston in Kent very soon. It struck me last night when I looked at the pictures that it looks more like a French Romanesque church than any English church I've seen. I suppose the influence was strong so close to La Manche. Look out for the page. Joyeux Noel, Mon Brave.

I like all the pictures. I love the dragon best. I love you granddad xxxx.

Admin reply: Thank you, Callum. Your granddad loves you so very much too. There are lots of dragons on this website - more than you can shake a sword at - but most of them are surprisingly friendly - they are just big softies, really.

Dear Lionel and Diana, Great start and I'm sure it will develop. Look forward to seeing it expand as you catch up on your archive of material.

Dear Lionel and Diana
Brixworth is a stunning church, I think it's the combination of white washed walls and stone arches, lovely photographs
Cheers Peter

Admin reply: Thanks, Peter. Brixworth is where I take people for an eye-opener. I've got lots of Saxon churches stacked up ready for posting in the future, but do look at Deerhurst that is already there under Gloucestershire.

Lovely idea Lionel. We have an amazing richness of churches around here and I intend to plunder your site for good ones to visit. Many thanks.

PS I'm sure the site will grow and grow, so,(though you probably know all this) its worth mentioning (speaking, he said modestly, as a media professional of 30 years), that as a rule of thumb, short paragraphs are better than long ones and pictures are better than paragraphs...

All the best

Admin reply: Thanks, Martin. I take your point that there are lots of words that many will choose not to read - but pictures enough for anybody, surely...? It was a tough call and Diana, for one, had the same concerns, but I don't want to bow to the insidious notion that nobody can now be expected to read beyond the length of a text message! I've tried to inject a light touch but I'm flying a flag for those who thirst for knowledge (and for those like myself who would like to share it), not just instant gratifcation. I'm sure you are right that I will be punished via the site stats though! ;)
