St. Mary's at Lymm

St Mary's church overlooking the dam at Lymm. The church website gives a nice, brief history:

As the Parish Church of Lymm it has borne witness to the Christian faith for over a thousand years, and is the fourth church on this site. A Saxon church is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. A Norman church replaced the original building, while a third church was built probably in the first part of the fourteenth-century. The present church was extensively re-built in 1851.


  1. Such a beautiful photo and great perspective.... it looks like a calendar picture or postcard :-)

  2. I love the colours of Autumn in those trees. I see the Victorians "improved" this church as with so many others.

  3. A very nice picture, I do love the colors:)
    ( seems that we both take pictures of churches at the moment ) Have a nice weekend, Chrissy!

  4. Lovely autumn shot Chrissy, looks like a lot of steps up to that church!

  5. How very beautiful a sight !

    Please have a good Friday.

  6. This is a perfect postcard, Autumn colors are so gorgeous there! :)
