Two Churches, One Town

Today I discovered just by chance this mini-documentary of two beautiful 900-year-old churches in a lovely little English town - and the struggle to keep them from falling into ruin.  The high-definition videography is wonderful.  

You can learn more at the website Two Churches, One Town.

That's gorgeously produced. We have visited the minster at Beverly and St Mary's nearby. The minster is my favorite early building in the UK and I prayers at the tomb of St John there. Nice tea shop nearby as well.

You may be interested in the Youtube channel of my friend Allan Barton who's wonderfully erudite and entertaining - his channel is called The Antiquary and he cover things churchly and royal. I think you'd enjoy it.

I never heard of these churches before I stumbled upon this video, but they are lovely. There are so many old churches in England now with dwindling or extinct congregations, a real preservation problem.

Thanks so much for the tip about The Antiquary channel - I've subscribed - Barton's videos are marvelous. He's got a whole slew of them about the many historical details of English coronations that I'll be working my way through in the coming days. Fascinating!

I do hope the Coronation goes smoothly and happily.
