Life and Thyme!

Bridlington Priory.

We recently visited Bridlington, East Yorkshire, and were delighted to find this gem.

Apparently there are 18 Thompson mice lurking inside. I only found just this one.

There he goes. The Font was apparently made of Frosterly marble in the 14th Century

The history of the Priory has been told in tapestry panels made by local people

I love this window above the altar. Known as the Jesse window depicting the family tree of Jesus.

Whilst we were there we were treated to an organ rehearsal. Lovely music, which added so much to our visit.

Finally the west window, said to be the largest in the North of England.
