Yarn, Yorkshire and All Manner of Wonderful Things!

InSpired Sunday!

I do not like going to the dentist. Sorry dentists everywhere, but child hood traumas and a fear of injections make such visits a real ordeal. So I give myself a little treat for on the way home. I have a picnic near.. but I forgot to take a picture and will save that place for another day. And further on,I visit this church to restore my equilibrium.

St Andrews Church in the village of Langton. Langton is a tiny village. There is still a small village school, but no shop or pub. The whole village grew up around the big house, which most recently has been a school too, but closed in 2012. So the church has little money and is simplicity itself inside.

However there is a fine window above the altar

And then there is this tomb to Mary Ingram who died giving birth to twins.

Not quite what you expect in this little church!

I love the peace and quiet here.

The view from the church yard across the Yorkshire wolds says it all.

And I love the way that the churchyard is left in part for nature.

Sorry about the quality of the pics, they were taken on my mobile phone.  More on the church here
