BROADCHALKE

 

 

In this churchyard in remotest Wiltshire is the final resting place of celebrated photographer and society figure Cecil Beaton.

 

I wish I had his talent and connections - but not his name..

For how long has he been resting in there, Chris?

Is this a kind of reenactment of the famous John/Yoko lay in?

So many questions...
So little...umh...barleywater...
Chris: Since around 1980 I think Ray. He lived in a house not so far away from here later bought by Guy Ritchie & Madonna - bet you wanted to know that..

The name 'Broadchalke' is suiting , I had thought this church were situated at the chalk coast of South- England. Cecil Beaton was unknown to me, sorry. Is his name really so bad?
Chris: What I meant is I wouldn't like to have been baptised with the name Cecil Philine
Very interesting. Cecil is a dreadful name. It would not suit you
Chris: Nor yourself but what about Cecil Trim?

Yes, Christopher is quite better, but you don't like to be called like this.
Chris: Anything is better than Cecil, which can only be shortened to Cess, as in cess pit

The name Cecil is an English baby name. In English the meaning of the name Cecil is: Blind (from the Roman clan name Caecilius). Yes, I understand now why you refuse this name.
Chris: My logic is steadfast Philine
Looks stunning against that sky Chris. Lovely shot
Chris: Thank you kindly Janet
Fine looking church isn't it, we are spoilt for churches on SC today. As for Cecil, no thanks!
Chris: We are indeed Brian: thank you

I admire your picture of this fine church, Chris
Chris: A beaut isn't it Lisl
The stone is very whit, probably limestone. Broadchalke becomes a good name for it.
I love those blue doors - and the sky makes such a wonderful shot!
