A homeward detour to Ightham Mote

Well, again all good things must end and today it was homeward bound.  We had a couple of stops on the way, the first being a rather interesting church - All Saint's at Tudeley.  It has some remarkable stained glass windows by Marc Chagall and these were made as a tribute to a 21-year old young lady who died as a result of a sailing accident at Rye.  The colours are wonderful.

Not much further on and we stopped at Ightham Mote  which was a first visit for me.  A moated manor house and pretty garden with a wilder area beyond the pond.



A good few days albeit the weather left a lot to be desired... but yesterday was really summer-like and today - at least it was dry.

(and blogger still seems to have some problems in uploading pictures.... unless it's me of course!!)

What wonderful windows. It looks well worth a visit.

Love the header photo.
Well done with the stained glass windows, a very difficult subject to photograph.

Fantastic glass in the church windows. I love the carving on the wall. Looks like a lion. Great shots once again.
