Fonts and Links - Avebury Church




The heart of a 1700 year old yew at Alton Priors, Wiltshire


I find this tree extraordinary and perhaps it should be the header but not for the moment, the font at St.James church in Avebury but whilst reading and sorting some of the stuff on my other blog, 'Poem, Paintings and Photos I came across the following Dragons and Yews, from which the new header is taken, which led to St.James church at Avebury which  has the spectacular font from which all sorts of stories can be gathered.  As I pottered all through  in usual fashion getting completely lost with the links I chased.,  I came across Meanderings which probably gives a much fuller picture.  Did I really write and research all this.... can't believe it.

  1. Oh thelma - I often come across writings I did years ago and can't believe I did such thorough research. I love your header and I love that fascinating old tree too.

  2. It is incredibly beautiful that old yew, the pinkish-cream colour and the ability to hang on to life.
