All Saints’, Clifton, Bedfordshire

Looking at faces from history…

Parish churches are so much a part of  English towns and countryside, I think we too often take them for granted. But for me, they are the standing monuments to the artists and craftsmen and women of our past.

Not all churches are architectural wonders, many are simply the product of many centuries of building and rebuilding in response to the needs or whims of the local community.

All Saints’ Clifton, is a typically normal church – a mixture of styles created over the centuries, with its own special charm.

Which for me, are the faces…

Don’t you wish they could tell you about themselves.

      If Rood screens start to go missing, we’ll know where to look! No, I know what you mean, churches must have looked very different before the Reformation, I love these glimpses back to what was there before.
