Anglo saxon heritage

This is St Chads, the parish church for the ancient Lancashire market town of Poulton-le-Fylde. St Chad was a 7th century (Anglo-saxon) saint, so pre-dates the Norman conquest of 1066 by some way. There is equivocation in the history about when the church was actually built; it is likely a church can be assumed on this site for some while before the present structure, which probably dates from around 1090, much augmented over the 14th - 18th centuries.

It's a lovely church, in a very picturesque setting. I regret that my photo here does not do it justice. I had to rescue an over-exposed image and then muck about in Lightroom trying to make it look half reasonable.

Many thanks for all of your comments over the past few days - all are very much appreciated.
Lovely windows :)
