DescriptionIn England we see lots of warm sunny shots of nice old churches with leafy trees and leafy villages around. This is an English 13th century church in the borders between Scotland and England. A building which has survived. In the 1745 Jacobite rebellion, the local family here raised Catholic militias to fight alongside the Scots against the English monarch, yet this (Protestant) church is their burial place. The chancel floor was raised to bury another strong local family and as a result is the only English church with stairs up to the chancel. But the church carries on, unchallenged, with the history of its people in the stones. And to show the church in its context (the village has gone): http://www.flickr.com/photos/johndal/219908394/in/set-72157594350494563">www.flickr.com/photos/johndal/219908394/in/set-7215759435...
