Greensted - St Andrew's

After the rain and  wind we've had for weeks today was glorious!

That said I couldn't settle on what to do and decided to take you for a look at St andrew's Greensted which has a wooden nave. The church is old though no one can quite settle on how old but 1995 dendrochronology dates it between 998 & 1063, a church probably stood on the site much early. It is the oldest wooden nave in Europe. The nave is Tudor and the tower Stuart.
