Tewkesbury

Outside of the Cotswolds, after we got rained out at our boot sale, we went to the interesting town of Tewkesbury. We made a quick trip there to check out the Abbey.

Here is a view of the ceiling there. This photo was taken of a reflection in a mirror which help to give a really good look at it.

There were three people there working on needle work for pads to go into the abbey. It was going to take them months to get everything done. I think they said that they had a dozen people working on them whenever they got a chance.

There was even a man working on it.

In churches all over England, if you look closely, you will find carvings of what are called Green Men, usually having leaves for hair and beards and part of old pagan religions. The sculpters usually hid at least one in some hidden corner of the church they worked in.
