English Churches

No matter whether you're religious or not, I don't think anyone can deny how utterly charming English Country churches can be. We attended a christening on Sunday that took place at Christ Church in Shamley Green, a picture perfect Surrey Hills village. Set on a hill the church is at the heart of this community despite it's position on the edge of the village. The church dates from 1863, with solid stone walls it is simple yet so pleasing to sit in.

It's tranquillity calms the mind as it nourishes the soul. After a hectic week it was nice to stay still and quiet for an hour as the very jolly Vicar, who I'm sure has been compared to Vicar of Dibley on more than one occasion!
