Hello Bev,
Looking in this direction we see what seems to be a fairly ordinary Gothic church, the most fascinating part of its history being behind your back.
The photos and explanations found in the exhibitions would have been very interesting. You mention how some people had suffered from bone diseases, but possibly even more common in older days were tooth aches that must have made life unbearable. Many skeletons found in Swedish graves, including those of kings and queens, have shown extremely bad teeth.
You mention here that the church was declared redundant. In an earlier note you said that it was consecrated, which sounds a bit contradictory. So what is its status? There have to be two services a year. But for what reason? Will it be deconsecrated otherwise? And what would that mean?
Sorry for being so inquisitive.;-)
Best regards,

Default To Royaldevon: The pigeons

Thank you Beverley,

Temperatures were pleasantly warm at the end of May early June.
But I was there before the heat waves hit Spain.

Of course the pigeons enjoyed the fountains to drink and splash in.

Kind regards,
