Love the hand-signalling competence demonstrated here, Chris...is Droitwich known for this as well as its salty water and its incessant rain?
Chris: Droitwich is known for a number of things Ray, most of which I would not wish to discuss on this family-centred forum
very nice exposure, Chris. i think you managed to coax out details everywhere without blowing out the area around the windows. and i like cathedral interior.
Chris: That is very kind of you Ayush
A place of magnificence as you have shown. St Droitburgh is, of course, the patron saint of bacon
Chris: Indeed he is; I often pay homage to him and his works..

Yes, you are right, of course - the Heidschnucken have horns though - I thought of this mosaic: https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sant%E2%80%99Apollinare_in_Classe#/media/File:Ravenna_BW_4.JPG
Chris: Very similar in style isn't it Philine

Oh very impressive and well taken in what I would imagine is low light. Is this overlooked by the Bacon Sandwich Hills?
Chris: Not quite: it is in the very epicentre of Droitwich Upon Salt
Date Palms in Droiters ?
Chris: It makes a change from sausages..
The Roman salt workers were having a bit of nap and have been disturbed by the BIG boss.
Chris: With whom it is unadvisable to argue..

"The mosaics of The Church of the Sacred Heart and St Catherine of Alexandria are considered to be among the finest in England. They were designed by Gabriel Pippet and carried out by the mosaicists Maurice Josey and Fred Oates.

Gabriel Pippet spent some time in Ravenna and Rome where he was most impressed by the mosaic decoration, and this influence is clearly apparent in our church. The mosaicist, Maurice Josey, had been employed on the mosaics in Westminster Cathedral before he came to Droitwich."

Why didn't Bill show me this beautiful church?
Chris: I have no idea Philine, hopefully next time. Personally I was spellbound by its beauty and intricacy.
Beautifully done isn't it, and I expect they are very proud of it Chris.
Chris: This is only a very small part of the place Janet
Oh yes - a definite tribute to Ravenna!
Chris: Good eh Tom!
What an amazing mural! Thank you for sharing!
Chris: If you ever get to Droitwich you will see the whole church is like this Elizabeth
