An easily overlooked Victorian pulpit that is very nicely made with its angles and arches, buttresses and pillars. Personally, these are the kind of church creations that can bring me the most joy. The talent that has gone into this and the beauty that comes out. #churchpulpit #pulpit #churchwoodwork #churchwood #carving #woodcarving #carvedart #carpentry #woodwork #woodcarver #woodcarve #woodcarved #woodcarvings #woodcarvingart #木彫り #maderatallada #резноедерево #彫刻 #tallado #조각 #резьбаподереву #oakford #churchfurniture #churchfurnishings #churchvisit #victorianchurch #churchphotography #churchcrawling #church

It’s an odd and effective south entrance here between two buttresses, giving a mini-grandiose effect. Indeed, the whole church has this vibe too. Double the size and we would be in awe, maybe even overpowered, but with this size it’s a pocket power church #southentrance #oldchurch #oldchurches  #church #churchhunting #churchvisit #churches #churchesoftheworld #parishchurch #churcharchitecture  #churchlovers #anglicanchurch #churchesofinstagram #churching #churchporn #beautifulchurch #churchphotography #countrychurch #villagechurch #stonechurch #englishchurch #churchcrawling #ruralchurch #churchofengland #churchdoor #doorway #churchmasters #churchvibes #churchthings

I remember that I turned up at my local pub after nigh on 10 years abroad and the 85 year old landlady said ‘a bad penny always turns up’ and farmer man said ‘we’d thought ee be dead by now’.
Somehow I think folk had deeper and purer feelings for these departed 🙄.
A beautifully simple memorial, I love the purity reflected in its elegance. So soulful

This is one facet of the relatively new C19 liturgy, I suggest cautiously. Attention on the Eucharist and thus the altar, no barrier between the priest and the congregation, pulpit decreased in importance from those massive edifices of the C18 and, of course, no pews paid for - in theory anybody could sit anywhere. But this is England still lacking the slow C20 Revolution that has left the class system in tatters, so that last bit didn’t hit the spot in practise.
Oh, and it’s a cracker, totally dope.

Ain’t this good? The west door in the C15 tower, “probably reconstructed 1838” and who cares 😊
