TL2452 : Gamlingay: St Mary

taken 9 years ago, near to Gamlingay, Cambridgeshire, England

Gamlingay: St Mary
Gamlingay: St Mary
The church roof is being restored, funded by the lottery. Some of the gravestones closest to the building are protected by plywood covers. This May-morning view of St Mary's gives a good idea of its colour. The walls are of iron-rich greensand and field stones, with limestone dressings. "W tower ... N transept and a N sacristy - embattled and enriched by gargoyles below the battlements - an effect robust and sonorous," wrote Nikolaus Pevsner.
