Freiburg, Germany – Freiburg Minster

I visited this cathedral on 6th December 2018, as part of a Black Forest Christmas markets holiday. It’s a huge Gothic building with lovely stained glass windows.

There is some space around the cathedral but not enough to stand back and take a photo of the whole building.





Strasbourg, France – Cathédrale de Notre Dame

I visited this cathedral on 4th December 2018, whilst on a trip to various German Christmas markets. It was a wet and miserable day, but the cathedral was beautiful.

Unfortunately the photos aren’t great because I had to shoot jpgs in order to get several days’ shooting on my camera.

It was hard to get photos of the exterior as I couldn’t get far enough away for a shot, but there are plenty of interior ones:

Brathay, Lake District, Cumbria – Brathay

We visited this church on the afternoon of 17th September 2018 – it was very dark and pouring with rain, we got very wet! It was high up a narrow winding lane aptly named Bog Lane, which seemed to be miles from anywhere, but there was a church hall and good sized car park below it, and the notices on the boards indicate a lively community here. The church was closed.

Hawkshead, Lake District, Cumbria – St Michael and All Angels

We visited this church on 16th September 2018 – we were staying in the Lake District for a week and rented a cottage just outside the village. The church is situated on a hill in the middle of this little town, and had wonderful views all round. The church was open.
