Holy Cross In The Graveyard

To bring this week’s theme to an end, I’ve chosen this shot from the churchyard of the Church of St Peter at Chillingham.

Like many of the fantastic places I go to with my camera, the whole visit to the Church of St Peter was a happy accident, a detour from our original plans that ended up becoming our main focus on the trip. In researching these photos online, I’ve been very surprised at how obscure this magnificent tomb is, and how there is so little non-duplicated information available about both Sir Ralph and especially his wife Elizabeth. I thought the vanishing industrial ruins of South Wales were little-known today; this tomb is much less known.

I hope you’ve enjoyed the last couple of week’s photos. Tomorrow, on Project 25×9, I’ll share a few shots of the Chillingham Cattle, and then on Monday it’ll be offshore to the Farne Islands! Have a great weekend.
