Churches in Norfolk Part 4 St Catherine's Church Fritton


A beautiful church with round tower sat in trees with an intact Rood Screen, very tranquil setting that meant lingering for a while was not a chore.  What was also nice to see the tree avenue that presumably led to an important house or the rectory. 
The rood screen was particularly nice, although the access to it would be tight. Finally the stained glass windows were really beautiful, not sure if was the light at this time of day. But the colours were really vivid.

Churches in Norfolk part 3 St Michael, Great Cressingham


Slight disappointment as it was locked. A lot of newspaper cuttings and signs suggested that there had been theft of the lead roof in the past. A beautiful church never the less. 

Was difficult to get get a good close up photo, sad also there were glimpses of pretty stain glass windows. 

The surroundings were strange in having quite modern houses, for the period of the church, around it. There wasn't the usual isolation of many Norfolk Churches. 

Maybe next time can get in.

A Beautiful part of Norfolk, although not sure how isolated it will be in the summer. Was able to indulge two of my current passions, churches and pillboxes, add in a light house.

The church was especially beautiful with hints of the Rood Screen. 
The font was especially pretty and looked old.
There were a couple of interesting plaques on the wall, overall a very calm and tranquil experience.

Beautiful views of the sea from the churchyard.

Churches in Norfolk Part 2 (Thompson)

Incredible church, as it always seems such a small hamlet but such a big church. 

Nothing too fancy, the roof is exceptional and craftmanship to repair it is exceptional, there is even a mirror to see the roof, so you don't strain your neck. 

Lots of history relating back to the last king of the Punjab.

Churches in Norfolk part 1 (Bracton Ash)

 Norfolk has a huge history of churches, this is a beautiful example in Bracton Ash, St Nicholas. So calm so interesting additions that look out of character such as this porch, and extension that reminds me of Georgian Bath. 

A little research shows this was a family mausoleum, showing again the relationship of local churches to the families who built them and maintained them.

Saga Minatures

Not posting these as I feel I am an expert, but as something that reminds me of what I did, at least I can touch up the paint. 

I use Citadel paints as I find them easy to buy.

A few gripping beast archers, the yellow is  Averland Sunset. Makes things a bit brighter.

The armour I used Leadbelcher, seems to look like armour.

As with lots of stuff leather not easy, but used Rhinox Hide and Deathclaw Brown as well as Mournfang Brown (I seem to use lots of that, used it for the bases too.
