The weather was mixed today a few sunny spells but mostly overcast conditions not ideal for photographs but it did give me a chance to try out the Sony RX100 compact camera.
The visit to the bell ringers platform just below the belfry was a bonus as was a chance to ring one of the bells which is a lot harder than it looks.
Maggie Hambling`s stainless steel sculpture "The Resurrection" looks wonderful but is partially hidden by the chandeliers when entering the church, there are plans to move one or the other to correct that.
We all had a fun day and it was great to be out joining in the festivities whatever the weather

The oldest part of the church dating from the 13th century and showing the filled in arch and floor with glazed opening giving a platform much lower down from the belfry for bell ringing
The view into the church from the bell ringing platform, taken through the platform window it shows my reflection
