St James' church, Lealholm

By oldgreyheron      
We revisited Lealholm in the Esk valley in the North Yorkshire Moors today (to buy apple trees from the wonderful village nursery).

The neat and tidy church stands above the village. It was built in the early 20th century through the local benefactor, Sir Francis Ley, and was consecrated in 1902. Before then Anglican church members had had to travel to the neighbouring village of Glaisdale to worship. The "Francis Ley" name explains the initials on the drinking fountain in my earlier upload.

We enjoyed our day out and the five apple trees will be delivered in the next few days. I hope that you have had a good day too.

I love the clean and simple lines of this. The copper beech behind the church is the finishing touch.

Lots of opportunity for shots of apple blossom To come. Not to mention the fruit and pies to follow.

As always, you have such a fantastic sense of light and shadow, Mike. A beautiful view of this church and its lovely grounds.
