Photographer's Note

Good Morning Everyone,

This is a second view of St Alkelda's Church in Giggleswick. It is a beautiful, ancient church, mainly 15th century, built on an Anglo Saxon footprint. It has an unusual dedication to St Alkelda, an Anglo-Saxon saint associated with the North Yorkshire. (Legend has it that she was an Anglo-Saxon princess, and probably also a nun, who was strangled by pagan Viking women during Danish raids in about 800.)

When I entered the churchyard, I was wowed by the unusual design and the beauty of the building. From the entrance end, it was impossible to include the tower in the photograph but, as I walked towards the far lych gate and looked back, the tower was easy to include.

The light was very unusual, the sky was quite dark, yet the sun was shining strongly from the left.

I hope you like the building as much as I did.

My warm regards,
Bev :-)
