Photographer's Note

Decided to take a drive into that green and pleasant land that is England.Lanercost Priory is often a stop we make before driving on, out of Cumbria and into Northumbria.The view you see through this ancient arch is The Priory Church of St Mary Magdalene with the ruins of the priory behind.The Priory was built using the stones from nearby Hadrian's Wall.Lanercost's own website tells that the parish is looking for a new vicar.I confess to not being of a religious mind but nonetheless, the opportunity to live and work in such a beautiful setting is very tempting. How long would it take to be ordained? Would Lanercost like a female vicar? Scenes from the TV comedy series The Vicar of Dibley come to mind.
Beyond the church and next to the priory ruins is a most scenic graveyard. At present May blossom blooms above the gravestones and bluebells are dotted between them and as this is May Day I have posted a workshop to show you.
