Today's St. Nicholas Church is courtesy of Diane of the wonderful blog "My Life in the Charente." She gives a beautiful and detailed history of this St. Nicholas church whose earliest foundations dates from Norman times. Please visit her amazing blog to read more about this historic church and to see more of her fabulous photos!
St. Nicolas Church itself also has a website.
I leave you with one more amazing photograph from Diane - an interior shot:
Many thanks Diane for this lovely tour of the historic, St. Nicolas Church at Newbury!

Oh, it looks like a beuatiful church. What lovely images, at first glance the top one reminded me of the Duke Chapel in North Carolina, where I spend 8 years.;)
Have a lovely midweek dear Ann,

A very lovely church indeed. Britain has so many churches with beautiful stained glass windows, barrel ceilings etc. What a great tradition.

Ann,
Thank you for sharing these photos. The interior of that church is so dramatic. Modern architecture just does not compare.

Hi Ann
You are so kind to come visit.. So good to see you there.. Valentino was such fun to create.. Changed my mind in progress a few times. First he was going to be standing.
Anita gave me that name! Was that perfect for him or what.
Enjoy your weekend
Blessings,
Penny
