Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

Thank you for following my series on St. Peter's Anglo-Saxon Church. I hope you have found it interesting.

Before I leave the church, I thought I would share three interesting features from inside the church.

I found it difficult to decide which to use as my main post but as I am going to show them all, the choice can be yours.

This is an old carving, found on one of the columns; it is what is known as the Green Man, appearing amongst lush foliage.

The Green Man was one of those pagan symbols which found its way into Christian churches. The Green Man is believed to symbolise the cycle of life, death and re-birth. The symbol of Godhood within the male and its relationship with the transcendent life force our Goddess, the female expression of divinity.

He heralds Spring after a long winter and the renewal of lush vegetation.

The workshops show a different stone carving and a most unusual window, the like of which I have never seen before.

Thank you for your interest, Bev :-)
