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.

Very decorative interior - looks a good find in a very nice part of London!

Had a few visits to the Natural History museum with J when he was younger.. and I agree, excellent that its free!

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!! :)
