Rayleigh – Holy Trinity

I have got photos from a couple of dates: a walk past on the 14th March 2012, and a visit to the church and tower on the Tower Open Day on 25th May 2015. I did get a couple of shots inside but not many. Most of my photos are of the view from the tower . . .

Leigh-on-Sea – St Clement’s

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.

Canewdon – St Nicholas

Canewdon is near where I live and I have got photos from six visits, ranging from April 2008 to March 2017. The church is on a hill (all of the village of Canewdon is on a hill) and is clearly visible for miles around. It has 8 bells, and I rang them on March 18th 2017.

A bit dramatic, using a wide-angle lens, but at least I have got most of the church in shot
