A Winter’s Day Explore

A Winter’s Day Explore

After spending the past few days mostly indoors and doing boring chores, I decided it was time to get out and get some fresh air into my lungs.
Lately I’ve been trying to explore local places around me that I’ve never taken any notice to or just never bothered to go and see. Be a sort of tourist in my own city kinda thing.

 

St Michael and All Angels

This beautiful, timber framed church is located in Great Altcar, a village in West Lancashire.
I pass this church quite often when on my way into Liverpool for hospital appointments and always admire the beautiful grounds it’s situated in.
There has been a church on this site since 1429 but sadly there are no remains of the small brick building there once was.
The building that stands here now was first built in 1878 and only houses one stained glass window.
It is such a beautifully simple church compared to the grandiose churches of Liverpool and most towns and cities.

How gorgeous does that church entrance look? I could just see myself in the doorway in my wedding dress… Oh I can dream, right?

    Really nice pictures. I’m from Liverpool and have never been there myself, so it’s nice to see some areas in my city that I’ve never seen in person. Thanks for sharing x

      I’ve never been to Speke Hall either, which is another on my hit list. Everyone I know around here has been πŸ˜‚ xx

    I know this might seem weird, but I always got lost in the idea of going to graves and wondering what kind of person he or she was. What did they look like etc. That’s not your typical kind of thing a person does, I know 😜 Lovely photography!
