Outdoor Wednesday - Pleshey






visit other Outdoor Wednesday posts by clicking on the logo




One of my most favourite places that I visit every year is a village called Pleshey. I visit because I'm on retreat with other Chaplains and the Church of England Retreat House is in the village of Pleshey. For me it's the church I adore and because it's OUTDOOR Wednesday here are some photos I took last June.

What a gorgeous building. The door way alone speaks volumes.

The figurine is both lovely and poignant.

That is a beautiful church. I agree with Janet- I love the door at the entrance.

My sister thinks I'm odd but I love cemetery's. When we were kids the whole family would walk around different cemetery's as we traveled. I loved it; she hated it. lol Great pictures :)
