All Saints, the conclusion.

Hi folks,

Welcome back to Graveney Church, an extra touch of colour as we were just past Remembrance Sunday, we thought the altar looked rather regal.

Just a wider aspect to show more detail of this lovely scene.

I liked to look out for the big candle depicting the year, soon be time for a change, yet another year is coming to a close!

There is always so much that I like to photograph in a church this rood screen for instance, it is difficult to select a few but the carvings are always so noteworthy because they are true craftsmanship not like todays moldings.

Here is the extra "shelving" that was added in to the 1823 box pews to give all round seating but in 1925 the Archdeacon recommended replacing them with chairs so the congregation would be more comfortable.  As you can see the pews remain, chairs were £1. 4s. 6d. (£1.23 in todays money), far too much to spend in 1925.

Crown with fleue-de-lis emblem glistening in the sunshine on the side of the Pews.

How did they build roofs, just amazing without modern machinery!

Another touch of the Remembrance from the candelabra over the pulpit.

A shining Bishops Mitre on the edge of the Pews.

Well that's the end of your visit to All Saints Church, I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.

Thanks for looking.

Best regards, Mike
