The final stop on my return to church visits is St Peter. This church is a formidable church in the middle of a very small village. Guess what? I’ve been here before too.
St Peter’s, Wiggenhall St Peter
The Church of St Peter is a much more recent church than the others I visited. Most of the existing structure appears to be from the 15th century. It appears however, that the bell tower was built into an existing nave. This would suggest the history of the site goes back further than 1550.
Whilst postcards from the era show the church was in a relatively good around 1920, it is believed that it went out of use before then.
The church is now under the care of the Norfolk Historic Churches Trust and the tower was struck by lightning in 2013.
As it was getting later in the day at this point, the position of the sun was making light more unpredictable.
I wanted to avoid straight copies of what I had done before, but given trees, homes and a river it’s difficult to find new angles. Regardless, I got a few that I liked. Here they are.
It was nice to get out with the camera that day. The weather over the winter months had been pretty bleak so I hadn’t been out all that much.
The sun and ruins brought me back into my element and I really enjoyed my day out on my one. It was also nice to get back to shooting churches.
This is the last one for that trip and I apologise for taking so long to get it up. We are into June now, so my air show season has started and I have focused on that. I look forward to bringing you more over the summer.
I hope you have enjoyed these sites. For now, thanks for looking.
