Admittedly, it’s not the windows but rather the painted ceiling that’s the main point of interest here in this image from St. Mary’s church in Beverley, East Yorkshire. However, they are quite impressive in their own right….

Stained glass again this week, and another window from the old church in the nearby village of Saint Martial sur Isop. The image also gives a good idea of the thickness of the walls.

Even by local standards, the small settlement of Bonnefont is well off the beaten track, albeit only about twenty minutes away by car.
It’s worth the trip, though, if only for this exceptionally photogenic old window.

Q: When is a window not a window?
A: When it used to be one.
This outbuilding of one of the usually unoccupied houses here in Tranquility Base has seen a lot of re-purposing over the years. The shuttered window obviously used to be a door and there are the phantom vestiges of two other windows.

When we were house-hunting in France we saw quite a few of what we described as ‘Marie Celeste ‘ properties – houses that seemed to have been frozen in time as their inhabitants just upped and left.
This was one of them. I cannot remember where it was but I do know we didn’t buy it.
