Time and tide - # 08/80

Above: the early 17th Century windows of the tiny church of St. Peters in Petersham near Richmond.

Below: the interior, and on the right the 17th century tombs of local notables lying inside the Norman altar area built in 1266.

The was quite possibly a christian church on this site in the year 666 AD. There is a record of a church (probably on this spot) in 1086, and this church was actually built in 1266, and redeveloped in 1505 and 1600, keeping the old piece from 1266.

666 AD! The photo is naturally light. Brilliant light is flooding in. "Let there be light! And there was light".
