Thanks for your comments yesterday and thanks to them I would like to apologise for my hasty and derogatory comments on The Church of the Holy Cross Haltwhistle. I wrongly assumed it was built during the towns expansion in the mid eighteen hundreds. Nothing could be further from the truth. It is early thirteenth century and a pristine example of the period. It was rebuilt in the mid nineteenth century. I suspect it had a new roof then. It still hasn’t got an organ but what a trifling matter.
I’ll go back next week as my plans have altered. I’ll take a tripod and all the gubbins and have a good look at it.
Here are a couple of out takes from yesterday.
You opened my eyes so thank you again.
No sign of the otters either last night or this morning. So no blurry images of them. When I go to do the church I’ll but them a couple of fish. See if that tempts them out. I’ll also buy a new pair of wellies. I foolishly still wear the pair I have but they have a split in. It’s a peculiar split it lets water in but doesn’t appear to let water out. I am also getting short of peanuts…………Woody the Woodpecker is going through them at a fine rate. He hasn’t the common decency to pose but flies off at the first sign of the camera.
No paper today so no crossword…………How did you do?
Have a good Sunday…………It’s Grand Prix day or afternoon. So I know what I’ll be doing.
