What Light!

By Philip_H
Taken in the chancel of the medieval parish church of St Nicholas, North Grimston, Ryedale, North Yorkshire.

The church itself dates to the 12th century, with a Norman chancel arch. A medieval grave slab lies beside the altar, with a small medieval brass set into the wall above it. However, the real treat inside is the Norman font, wonderfully carved in a 'rustic' style. Pevsner called the North Grimston font a 'mighty and a barbaric piece' - which I think he meant as a compliment!

Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Zigzag'.

Best wishes,
Philip

There's some real gems in these out of the way churches. You've done this one justice as well, Philip. Not that far off the Malton By-pass which I whizz along a couple of times a year!!

That's right, Dave - very near the market town of Malton and well worth the detour to see the font if you get the chance - quite a challenging photographic subject too!
