Well, had a wonderful few days in Warwickshire, though on Monday the day of travel, and also on the first full day (Tuesday) the weather was rather grey and gloomy...from then on it was lots of sunshine for the rest of the week! Smile Our lovely hotel, the Charlecote Pheasant, was located in the village of Charlecote, some 4 miles east of Stratford-upon-Avon and 6 miles south of Warwick.
After getting settled in, I had a wander across the road into the village's St Leonard's Church. Rebuilt 1851-3, the church stands on the site of an earlier 12th century church on the edge of Charlecote Park. It was instigated and paid for by Mrs Mary Elizabeth Lucy, whose family resided at the Park.
The actress Judi Dench married actor Michael Williams in 1971 (who she also starred with in the TV sitcom 'A Fine Romance'), and they later lived in the village for 12 years. When Michael died in 2001, he was buried here in St Leonard's Church graveyard, and his grave is shown here in V2. The church interior can be seen in V3.
A bit of catching up to do on here, and lots of images to process too!

Glad you got some fine weather for your winter hol., Trev: always chancy esp. at this time of year.
Interesting opening set, accompanied by a full and informative narrative.
That church interior has been beautifully captured.

A sad loss to the acting world when Judi Dench lost her beloved husband, very interested to see his rather unkempt grave. Excellent processing, three fine images. Carol

A fine building beautifully portrayed here, and the grave shot is amazingly crisp.

A grand set, Trev; as usual, your processing is ideal for architectural edifices whatever the weather!

I do like your processing, Trev. We see plenty of church pictures on this site, but they hardly ever grab my attention like yours have.

Very good set, Trev, and as already mentioned, your choice of processing lends itself particularly well for architecture.
A very un-pretentious gravestone to Mr. Williams.

An attractive church with a very pretty steeple. It looks good against that wintery sky.
