The Window And The Cross

My theme this week is “Five Windows”, a small collection of photos of windows taken during our holiday in Berwick-upon-Tweed in 2010.

This is one of the windows from the Church of St Peter at Chillingham, a small church dating back to Norman times. Once through the door, when you turn to the right, at the far end of the church hangs this metal cross in front of a plain white window. It’s quite striking in person, standing out as it does from the green grass on the hill behind.

But even this isn’t what makes the Church of St Peter remarkable, for it houses one of finest tombs found outside of any cathedral or minster here in the UK, and that’s a theme I’ll be returning to for next week’s wallpapers.
