All packed up

The church at the end of my garden is undergoing a spot of restoration and is now all packed up and ready to go. On numerous occasions the local youth have made their way to the top followed by the plod in hot pursuit and it's become a bit of a magnet to all and sundry. Anyway, yesterday was the official viewing and we were invited to climb the scaffolding to admire the view and afterwards take a tour inside.
Very cool to see the roof so close and learn how they do the restoration.
Nathalie I so thought of you and your gravestone visit! why didn't I take a sheet of paper and crayons?? look at the flowers on the top of the bell, sigh...
When I went early afternoon they were only allowing us two thirds of the way up, but by the time DH went on the last tour with half the town's architects he managed to get to the top, jammy so and so...

WOW, what a unique perspective and I am drooling over the idea of a rubbing of those roses!

What an amazing tour! Don't kick yourslef too hard about not getting a rubbing of the bell. You'd only have to figure out what to do with it! My rubbings are floating around my studio and turn up every once in awhile when I move a pile. I can't throw them out, but don't know what to do with them! ha ha!
