Duntisbourne Abbots

What a great Spring day this has been! We ate lunch outside with our friends Colin and Jessica Russell after a gentle stroll up the dry valley to the North of Duntisbourne Abbots, returning via St Peter's Church. It has an unusual lychgate, swinging on a central post, and old gravestones stand like sentinels lining the path from it to the South porch.

Although it's 12th Century, I didn't find there was a lot to notice within the church itself, its setting on a sloped site in the village centre being the main charm of the place. However, this modern, deeply-engraved glass in the West porch window caught my eye: I wonder what its story is.
