This clandestine capture is from an impromptu stop at Brinkburn priory, picturesquely set by a bend in the River Coquet in Northumberland. Established as a house of Augustinian canons in c.1135, the late 12th-century church, re-roofed and repaired in 1858, is intact. Parts of the cloisters also survive, embodied in a nearby manor house. Although now a peaceful and tranquil place in the care of English Heritage, church services and concerts are still occasionally held here, and as luck would have it a service with incense was taking place during our visit. This restricted full access to all parts of the church, but it made for a great 'monastic' atmosphere with the choir singing and a good photographic opportunity.

Thanks for all the C&C's on my recent classic car set and other uploads.

Best wishes,
Philip

Wonderful capture indeed. This picture is very suitable for further processing. Have you considered the possibility of a sepia version?
Take care
