Let There Be Light

By DicksPics
Many thanks to Jeff, Ian(dales), Ronnie, Dave(HobbitDave), Fred(Fred263) and Patty for their wonderful awards for my 'Happy New Year!' upload and for all views, votes and comments - very much appreciated, as always.

Today's images were taken last autumn whist visiting the island of St. Agnes in the Isles of Scilly.

The lead, V1 and V2 show a beautifully crafted stained glass window depicting the lighthouse shown in V3.

The final version shows the lovely little St Agnes' Church where the window can be found. Here is a little history about the church:-

"The Anglican church is dedicated to St Agnes of Rome. The first church was built in the sixteenth or seventeenth century, but it was destroyed in a gale. It was rebuilt in the eighteenth century, but was again destroyed.

The current building was built by the islanders in the nineteenth century using the proceeds of the sale of a wreck, and the bell in the church was taken from that wreck. It is a Grade II listed building."


I hope the new year has started well for you - let's hope it's a good one!!Smile
