Leigh-on-Sea – St Clement’s

I came along to Leigh tower to ring for the switching-on of the Christmas lights on 24th November 2017. It’s a big occasion with a parade (which I was in a few years ago as a bellydancer!), stalls, all the shops open and giving out mince pies and drinks, some rides for the kids, lots of fun.

The church was open with lots of craft and food stalls inside the main body of the church, and a welcoming Santa at the door.



All the lights shining through the stained glass windows looked so beautiful, lovely to see illuminated in the darkness.

There were a full 8 of us to ring, we rang for about half an hour.

One of my local churches, I have photos taken on thirteen different occasions between July 2007 and the end of 2016. These photos are a selection, although the interior shots and the views from the tower were all taken on the 14th February 2009. Taken with a variety of cameras, various lenses including a couple with a fisheye lens, and some cameraphone shots.
