A gradual love of churches, and church architecture, grew from that until it got to the stage where the first thing that I did when arriving at a strange place was to look for the local church.
This is just a genuine love of old Parish village churches, with the site giving me a reason to go out to some lovely villages in my locality that I had never visited before. This has turned out to have more benefit to my health than any medication had, as it occupies my mind and, in todays parlance "chills me out!".
So, if you live in one of the villages covered in this site, and see me out and about taking photographs, please come up and say hello.
When I started this site I thought that it would just be a case of drawing a circle around Peterborough and visiting every church within that circle. Not so though, at times the circle more resembled an Octagon as I found more and more places that I wanted to visit. Obviously a line had to be drawn somewhere, and I ended up re-drawing the catchment area of the site in May 2007.
For the reasons mentioned above, this site is very important to me, and I would like to thank all of those who have contributed photographs, helped with research, vitied the site on a one off or regular basis and generally showed an interest. Thanks also to those connected with various churches who have shown me around and who obviously have a great love for the church that they are connected with.
Contained in the pages of this web site, you will find photographs of the interior (where possible) and exterior of the various churches. I will also include photographs of anything unusual that catches my eye. I have a particular love of gargoyles and unusual graves. There will be plenty of those covered as well.
If anyone reading this has any ideals or suggestions, then please get in touch. If you are a church warden in the area and would like to see your church covered, then again please drop me a line. If you run a church related web site yourself and would like to trade links, again please get in touch. If I have visited your church and there is anything glaringly obvious missed out then please E Mail me and have a go!!
