Ooh a church tick!

I got a phone call last week......

A - Did D tell you about the S meeting next week.
Me - Uh ..... no!
A - Yeah he said it would be either you or R
Me - so that will be me then!

So off to Kensington I was......

Last night I remembered that there were a couple of churches nearby. The first had no opening times but the second was open Wednesday 1-5..... hang on I thought my meeting finishes at 1 and it is Wednesday!!! So I spent my lunch break on a quick look

806 Holy Trinity, Kensington

The current church is Victorian and was designed by the celebrated architect G F Bodley.















I do like the wide streets and buildings around this part of London



The Natural History Museum (free to visit so EXCELLENT value)



And some views around Fenchurch street.

Beautiful church Pete and a lovely way to spend a lunch hour :)

We took D and E to Natural History museum London several times when they were younger - its just wonderful there :)

Have you got the Bentjeman church book? I acquired it along the way - in a Book People sale I believe. I really must stop buying books!! :)
