The Vestry Door

A photograph I took at the Church of St Michael, Flixton. A pretty, ancient, Church on a rise of land overlooking the water meadows of the Mersey river towards Cheshire. As is often the case with such an old edifice, there are stories of secret passages down to the river and interesting anecdotes of time gone by, so I wnted to convey that look, if I could, with this picture. The scrapbook page was made with CrarftArtist just using the photo effects, brushes and shapes within the program.

Easter Sunday at Alderley

It's a long time since I last posted to my Bloggs. Life takes over, but perhaps it's time to catch up.

Yesterday we went to the Church of St Mary, Alderley (Cheshire) as it was the beginning of their 'open' season for visitors to the Church, informal, and informative, guided tours are always available and we enjoy stopping by for a chat. This was where the search for our Salthouse family began as we discovered that my great great grandparents, John Salthouse and Lucy Walters, were married there on 31st March 1842. Yesterday the daffodils on Church Lane were catching the son and looked so beautiful; inside the Church was filled with light from the chandeliers and the sun pouring through the clerestory windows, lighting up the floral arrangements all around the Church.
