England - Melverley, St. Peter’s Church

England - Melverley, St. Peter’s Church
St. Peter’s Church in Melverley is situated on the banks of the River Vyrnwy. The church was rebuilt in 1406 to replace the wooden chapel, which was burnt down during the Welsh uprisings in 1401. All that remains of the old building is the Saxon font, which is still used for baptisms today. It features also a Jacobean pulpit and a lectum (1727) with a chained bible.

The current timber-framed, wattle and daub, black and white church is one of only three such churches to be found in Shropshire and one of twenty-seven in England and the oldest of its kind. There is not one nail in the building.

Excellent composition, Jaap! Although your right arm has quite overpowered your left ...LOL. Wonderful shot of the interior, showing the timber framing. BTW, are those fluorescent bulb fixtures at the top of the walls?

It is curious that the bush/tree at the extreme right seems to imitate a head in profile, with extended tongue.
