Inspired Sunday!

I just love looking around churches and churchyards- the social history of ordinary people can be found here. Here’s a gem we visited last weekend.

St Gregory's Minster Aug 2013 003

St Gregory’s Minster,Kirkdale, serving a rather big rural parish on the moors, is tucked away down a country lane. It is famed for its Anglo Saxon sundial now above the entrance to the church in the porch.
