Steeped in history
After I’d finished work at Bedales School this afternoon I stopped off at the village churchto take a look around. Steep Church was originally built in the twelfth century but it’s had many later architectural additions. I was looking forward to seeing an engraved window in memory of the World War I poet Edward Thomas who lived locally. Sadly it was vandalised recently so this wasn’t possible but I’ll go back in a few months to see if it’s been repaired. In the end my favourite shot of this brief visit was a photo of one of the other windows and there was something about the texture of the glass and the render on the walls which just seemed to cry out for a black and white conversion.
