Steeple

Not a lot to say today. I can't even remember the name of this church (standards are slipping!), although I do know its in Montpellier Street, opposite the Ladies College. I just like the way it points straight up to that blue sky. If I can think of the name I'll update you all, as a taster its more than likely called St 'somebodys' Church!

UPDATE....

Thanks to Tash at Palos Verdes DP for doing the job for me! She found the name of the Church, its St Andrew's. And the spire was built in 1885. I told you my standards were slipping! Thanks Tash.

I know the feeling of not knowing what to write though we would like doing it. But the picture is very beautiful.
Thanks for your comment on my sky in SkywatchFr.

I'm always missing names when it's time to caption, even though I usually take pains to find out. Then memory loss sabotages me. Some day's there is just no winning! Love that you "just" fit the cross into the photo!

Aw, that was too easy: http://www.urcic.org.uk/standrewsURC.php - St. Andrew's United Reformed Church.
I think you should contribute your lovely photo for their web site. As always, love the stone, love the steeple.

I have so many church pics I should post, but the names. St Andrews to me is a Football ground and another places I lived, as in Scotland actually in the grounds of the university. This is a very striking image great architecture.

The internet is playing up, lots of sites are swallowing my comments tonight. Including yours! Anyway just to say great shot,I like it very much! Let's see if I can sneak past the Cheltenham DP bouncers with my second attempt.

I don't know how many times I've said this, but I love old stone. You're showing it off very beautifully here!

And welcome to the club! :)
