Country Church

I am not a particularly religious person but there is something about old churches,cathedrals and other places of religious worship that attracts me. It’s as if the designers & builders excel themselves when it comes to these buildings and they often build them in some magnificent locations!

This country church in Tasmania is no exception. Unusually, it is quite a way from the nearest town, set on a hill at the end of a narrow lane and surrounded by farmland. The only thing you see is the spire rising above the trees and I would guess that most people drive past oblivious to it’s presence.

The church yard is probably one of the most peaceful places I have ever been in my life, all you hear is the birds and the wind sighing softly in the trees, very tranquil indeed.
