    Default St Mary's Church. East Somerton. March 2013.


    So, I thought I'd go a little retro here and revisit some of my earliest explores.
    Ruins of parish church. Knapped flint with ashlar dressings, the flints of
    nave becoming whole. West tower and nave. 3 stage tower, belfry stage now
    missing. Diagonal buttresses. Set-off at ringing chamber. West window
    represented by a hole. Pointed lancets to ringing chamber. 3 very tall nave
    windows to north and south, between which are remains of stepped buttresses.
    No tracery in windows and 2 western bays have large holes made in walls.
    Chancel arch with roll and sunk hollow mouldings. No trace of chancel.

    Thanks for looking:);)
    And a dreadful thing from the cliff did spring. And its wild bark thrilled around. His eyes had the glow of the fires below. Twas the form of the Spectre Hound. 'Ha' yer fa'r got a dickey, bor?' 'Yis, an' he want a fule ter roide 'im, will yew cum?'

    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?
