Photographer's Note

On this morning a scene of spectacular scenery was enhanced by a layer of mist in the hollows and valleys,this is such a special place..
Emerging from the mist behind the white buildings(The Old Rectory), and mostly hidden by the trees is the Church of St Mary the Virgin Marystowe or Stowe St Mary is derived from the Saxon meaning 'Holy place of St Mary'. The oldest part of the Church dates from the12th century. The tower was struck by lightening in 1729 but was not restored until 1824 when the five bells were recast into six. The tower has octagonal corner pinnacles, external to the battlemented parapit, which are crowned with obilisk finials.
