This is the church of St Thomas the Apostle in Stanhope, near Durham. It is the 12th Century Mother Church of the United Benefice of Upper Weardale.

The Church is an ancient structure, standing upon an elevated site on the north side of the town. It is principally of the Norman period, and simple in detail, its oldest portion being the lower stages of the tower. The restorations or additions, which have been effected from time to time, are of the Early English and Later Decorated styles. It consists of nave, aisles, chancel, south porch, and western tower. The chantry chapel at the east end of the south aisle, and dedicated to St. Mary, was probably added about 1225.

Thank you once again for your continued votes and comments, and I am pleased you enjoyed my last upload, which was taken just outside of this church.

Beautiful lead-in. Guess they have local rabbit problems from the way the Roses are caged! Lovely detail in the stonework and an interesting write-up to go along with it.

Maybe no need for the guinness; in some churches it's required to finish every last drop of the consecrated communion wine, but hopefully the vicar would be able to find members of the congregation to help

You found a good spot to manage to get the whole building in frame; and there is some nice detail in the stonework. Doesn't the blue clock show well too.

It is a near perfect picture of this church that anyone is likely to take, I'm sure if you sent the PCC a copy they would treasure it. I agree with others about the lead in, it sets the scene and allows the eye to absorb the beauty in an elegant and peaceful kind of way. One of your best yet Carol, very well done.
