St. Peter and St. Paul, Appledore

Hi folks,

Continuing on, sorry about the mistake yesterday but we all make them, we went into the church to investigate its interior and the tapestry. The church is situated at the Royal Military Canal end of the Street and was built in the 13th Century with 14th Century additions

Here is a brief history on the sign outside.

Inside is a familiar ridge beam and crown post so common in early churches

Oil lamp.

One of the many pillars supporting the naive with sunlight streaming in through the west window.

Close up of the window, loved the light patterns.

There are two roofs of this church, this one is a later design on the south side suggesting it was added after a fire at a later date.

Main Altar window.

15th century Font with the west window.

The name Appledore comes from Saxon Apuldre meaning an apple tree.

Thanks for looking more to follow.

Luv, Mike
