It could double as the doghouse when the bloke is having a dust-up with his missus, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Hence the wine bar idea ?

yes. i do see

i wonder how much sway the people who lived in the castle had over the church ?

was that ugly of me to say that ? if it was, i apologize now

an exceptional broad view of this entire scene and your photo is superb, once again
Bill Phillips: They would probably have had total sway over the church Sherri.
H.D.R. has done justice to that sky, Bill.
Bill Phillips: Thnks Frank. I think it has
See what you mean!! Love your photograph, Bill! Nicely done!
Bill Phillips: Somewhere to visit if you have time E
Indeed so, Bill. I have found castles often have their own chapel, which makes a lot of sense....
Bill Phillips: I think many of the great houses have Ginnie, after all they ran everything in the area

Yes you could have a good old session of sinning in the house, then run over the way to get absolution

Then more sinning...etc

You found that sky at the bottom of a cereal box.
Bill Phillips: Which begs the question where you find your snaps comrade

A cracking image; the sky especially is very impressive. What a lovely church, too.

Oh my! Charming scene.
Bill Phillips: THank you very much
I checked it out, around 30 minutes from us, this image makes it an even more interesting palce to visit.
Bill Phillips: You would enjoy it here Brian......surely you don't mean 30 minutes from home?
buildings (even castles) are okay to look at but for me the sky is the best part.
Bill Phillips: The sky was a bit good!

Not far at all. I now get the picture as they say smile I can just imagine Mr. Squire hanging out the window: "Hey vicar, we had a little binge yesterday evening. You mind starting the service an hour later. We should be able to make it, then."
Bill Phillips: I rather like that scenario Louis grin
great architecture Bill but that sky stole the show in this image....petersmile
Bill Phillips: I quite agree Peter
Nothing was lacking.
Bill Phillips: It is a fine house Claudio

Bill Phillips: Pleased you like it Bonnie. This was also taken using the wide angle Sigma lens
Something magical about those clouds...
Bill Phillips: It was a very showery afternoon Larry
