#SundayStills ~ Incredible Architecture #churches #cathedrals #ruins

Welcome to the Sunday Stills feature hosted by Terri Webster Schrandt.


This week’s prompt is churches, temples and spiritual centres. I’m adding cathedrals to the mix as I don’t have any photos of temples.

Wells Cathedral in Somerset.

St Oswald’s, a delightful church at Heavenfield, Northumberland. The site is believed to be where King Oswald and his troops prayed before the battle of Heavenfield in the 7th century. 

St Michael and All Angel’s Church in Littlebredy, Dorset on the left and St Margaret’s Church in North Wales, also known as the Marble Church because of the different kinds of marble used to decorate in interior.

The interior of Salisbury Cathedral.

Nantwich church on the left, on the right the church of St John the Baptist in the small hamlet of Edlingham in Northumberland. The existing stone church was built in the year 1000 on the site of earlier wooden structures.

Valle Crucis Abbey in Wales would have been classed as a spiritual centre in its day. Founded for an order of Cistercian monks in 1201, the most popular of the monastic orders in medieval Wales who lived a strict religious life.

    1. There are so many Terri. Everywhere you go there are either churches, cathedrals or the ruins of previous ones. I love looking round them and the smaller older ones have such a sense of history.

  1. Wonderful photos, Cathy. They stir the imagination in all sorts of ways, and the interior shots of those cathedrals are absolutely stunning! Thanks so much for sharing, and hope you’re having a great week!
