In a departure from musings about the environment and garden observations, today I’m going to show you the inside of Pickering Church. One of the Palm Sunday archers with Towton Battlefield Society had told me about medieval frescoes at St Peter and St Paul’s Church at Pickering. So, as we were in its vicinity on a trip to Helmsley, it was convenient for us to drop in.
Unfortunately, the sunlight made it difficult to photograph the frescoes. They do look better in real life.
Both my daughter and I were actually more taken with this stained glass window, however.
And I read the plaques around the church walls with interest.
It’s a shame that the headstones in the graveyard were not similarly well preserved.
