So I woke (no alarm) at 4:50!! I didn't jump straight out of bed but did set off at 6.
So first stop was the Nature In Art museum at Wallworth. Some odd stuff some that I would love to own. A lovely wood carving of an American Wigeon, paintings by Jonsson, Tunnicliffe and Thorburn. A very funny "sculpture" of two polar bears playing chess. A picture of downlands hill.
The garden also has artwork.
So I went off to find two churches.
Firstly 620 St Swithun's Leonard Stanley
Then 621 All Saints Selsley. Selsley was designed by G F Bodley and the glass is early Morris & Co (probably Phillip Webb)
Then on to Newark Park, a small National Trust property which contained some interesting art. The tapestry from the Imperial Palce in Beijing was superb. It was chucking it down so I used the little camera and never walked around the woodland walks.
I then went off to visit
622 St Sampson Cricklade
623 St Mary Purton
624 St Mary Lydiard Tregoze
It looks like your typical medieval church
It still does
but the chancel is amazing.
