St Michael the Archangel Church ~ Mere

The oldest part of the building dates to the 13th century, and the striking 38 metre high tower is 15th century, with tall pinnacles that can be seen for miles around.
Also one of the very old houses around the Church Close.

A beautiful image of an English village church, I'n always amazed that the effort that went into building them with the available tools at the time. the arch over the gate looks like there is something missing it doesn't seem to serve any purpose. An afternoon snoozing in the summer house Rosalyn ????

Rosalyn Hilborne replied to Peter Castell:

Yes they are amazing buildings. The arch maybe had a flower climbing it once and maybe a container at the top? I don't know but it seems the most feasible answer. No snoozing for me today....that's a Sunday job ;-)

Great capture of the very striking tower Ross and I love the old houses. Looks to me like the the arch over the gate may had held a lantern at some time, or is it a later addition.

Best regards, Doug
