On the Wednesday morning of my Whitby holiday, I visited St Mary's Church, which stands atop the East Cliff. The oldest parts, primarily the tower and basic structure, are Norman and date from around 1110. The church has various extensions, modifications and furnishings which have been added over the centuries, the interior being mostly 18th-century. The nave is filled with box pews, some of which say "For Strangers Only." Each is furnished with a carpeted floor and upholstered cushions. Above are galleries to seat more of the large congregation. In the midst of it all is a large charcoal stove, still in use, with flue rising to the ceiling. The triple-decker pulpit, shown close up in V2, dates from 1778, and stands aloft above all the pews.
It's quite dark inside the church, especially with the weather being dull outside that day, and not having my tripod, I upped the ISO to 2500 to be able to take the shots hand-held.

Single Raw images processed in Adobe Camera Raw 7, tweaked in Photomatix Pro 4 and Photoshop Elements 11.

Thanks again to everyone for your votes & comments on my previous uploads, it really is appreciated and encouraging.

You comment on how dark it is inside the Church, my first thought was how light it is. Very impressed at the quality of the images re cranking up the ISO so much, Nice set, you certainly have covered all the bases in Whitby.

Church interiors are nearly always interesting and offer good subjects. Lighting is sometimes a problem but you have coped admirably

The interior has a look of chapel about it, I suppose its all the changes over the years. Excellent set Trev.

An excellent set of images of a lovely church, well taken considering the ISO being so high, it am very impressed Trev.

After view the images and then reading your intro, I too am surprised that you said it was darkish as my first impression was how bright it was compared to so many church interiors.
I'd never have guessed you upped the ISO so much.
An excellent set documenting this attractive interior.

Wonder what the charcoal stove is for Trev ?
Perhaps they sell baked tatties during the break in prayers !!
Good set.

It's to keep the congregation from freezing in the winter months, Mick! Wink

Very well captured, Trev, the three tiered pulpit is quite a rare feature.
