Half a Mile down a track set in the woods around Burnley Hall are the Ruins of a 15 Century Perpendicular Parish Church. These Ruins are amongst the most picturesque and largest of all ruined Churches in Norfolk. St Marys was once in its own Parish but was swallowed up by the nearby Winterton Parish and the Church quickly fell into Disrepair.Nice site this one, and my first attempt at Black and White! Go easy on me!...Lookin towards the Church hidden in the trees

Nice group of shots you have there, Blackshuck!

B&W shots look good too, visited this place myself recently just wish I had a wider angle lense!!

Thank you Norfolk Bloke I appreciate that a lot! I really did try my best! I loved the Church it was a lot bigger than I though!, so I know what you mean by wanting a wider lense! although I am not a Photographer by any means I do try and make them look the best I can!:)

East Devon's Jurassic Park!
...I quite like the effect though.

Me too. B&W's always have a certain impact, imo. Back in June some colour pics of mine came out rather strange because of harsh, Midday sunlight...lime green grass and pink brickwork, urgh! :lol: Since then I've done a B&W conversion on them and they look truck-loads better. :)

Not a bad set of pics you got there black & white works well on a subject such as this; pehaps a touch of sepia maybe would work well?
Like the car wheel in shot no.5 mate :wink:

Yeah Black and White seems to be good for Churches and Houses e.t.c. What do you think of Sepia Foxy?

Thanks for the Tips Wagg. I have seen some old Sepia shots of a Signal Box and Station and it looked fantastic, liked them a lot.:)

N.B Have you ever been to the Church over at Roudham near Thetford.

Haven't had a chance to look around the site but have seen it many times from the window seat of an east midlands train carrage!!!

Looks like a good spot but a bit out of my way!

Really nice shots, Black Shuck. I do not like black and white shots in general, but your shots were very good. I will go up the some times and takes some shots. Lots of nettles there ???
