Ulting – All Saints

This little church is delightfully situated¬†right on the banks of the river Chelmer. You have to drive down quite a long lane past several back gardens, it’s very private and discreetly located.

We have visited twice: on 14th July 2011 and on 29th April 2013. These photos are a mixture from those visits.
