A shot of the church where Dylan attended preschool. A lovely old structure, it is! It was damaged many years ago during an ice storm.. it was entirely gutted by fire. It was restored to it’s former glory over several years of re-construction.. it is quite beautiful inside!

Poole (Wesleyan) Methodist Church, High Street, Poole, Dorset

… with the Rev. J Westcombe.

C T Snook, Poole.
Postmarked Wareham, 1905.

The 1878 church is now under serious threat of being ruined by wholly inappropriate plans submitted by the well-meaning but architecturally ignorant clergy (the same ones who have just closed three more Methodist churches in Poole). Money raised by the sale of their closed assets will be used to destroy yet more of Poole’s history inside a Conservation Area. The important interior (nave, galleries, etc.) will be swept away in favour of new floors for rooms to be let, toilets, kitchens and serveries. The 1864 Hall (older than the main church) which reconstructed the 1794 hall will be demolished, as will the small hall alongside. These will be replaced by a grotesque box of glass and reconstituted stone cladding that will deeply insult both church and neighbourhood. But you don’t have to take my word for it: you can download the plans from the Poole Methodist website:
www.poolemethodists.org.uk/cms/index.php?option=com_conte…
or directly download the pdf file here:

and see how incongruous the proposed design would be in the historic Georgian High Street.

Hymn 473 – Lift High the Cross – Trinity Episcopal Church – Fredonia, NY

Recessional Hymn 473: Lift high the cross, the love of Christ proclaim till all the world adore his sacred name. Led on their way by this triumphant sign, the hosts of God in conquering ranks combine. Each newborn servant of the Crucified bears on the brow the seal of him who died. O Lord, once lifted on the glorious tree, as thou hast promised, draw the world to thee. So shall our song of triumph ever be: praise to the Crucified for victory.

Holy Trinity Church, Stratford-upon-Avon – High Alter – bust of William Shakespeare

Holy Trinity Church, Stratford-upon-Avon – High Alter – bust of William Shakespeare
Trinity Church
Image by ell brown
This is the Holy Trinity Church in Stratford-upon-Avon. It is the site where William Shakespeare and close members of his family are burried inside.

It is in Old Town near a bank of the River Avon.

2010 is the 800th anniversary of the present building which dates to 1210.

Information from a leaflet I was given after paying £1.50 to go to the section to view Shakespeare’s Grave.

There has been a church on this site since at least 713 when a Saxon monastery was built here. The present building dates from 1210, with the oldest sections being the tower, transepts and nave pillars. The North and South aisles were added in the 1300s and the Chancel in the late 1400s.

The Church of the Holy Trinity is a Grade I listed building.

Church; collegiate status from 1415 to 1547. Anglo-Saxon
origins; possibly C12 work in early C13 tower, remodelled in
early C14; early C13 transepts; early to mid C14 nave arcades
and aisles; 1580s chancel; 1590s nave clerestory and north
porch; 1763 spire by W Hiorn of Warwick; restored by William
Butterfield, 1850s; by Bodley and Garner, 1888-92 and 1898.

As I was here, thought I might as well go inside and see Shakespeare’s Grave.

This is the High Alter in the church.

On the left is a bust of William Shakespeare dating to 1623.
