The Next Challenge: Backs of Things

Poppy Head Pews, Norfolk

as it so happened I had been photographing the backs of these hand-carved pews in the churches of North Norfolk. My main reason was the poppy heads themselves, but then I noticed that the backs of the pews are intricately carved too.

    • Just lucky that this was the theme, I also have another photo that I might post which fits in quite well – another Norfolk shot! The churches are quite beautiful, so light and airy and they don’t smell as musty as many churches I have been in. I am an atheist or possibly an humanist (my OH is just confusing me at the moment) but love the architecture and history of church and monastic buildings.

  1. How beautiful, I was brought up in a parish with a modern church and horribly uncomfortable modern pews – ugly, too. These are just gorgeous. Great take on the theme.

    • They certainly did, sadly a lot of the original ones were damaged in the Reformation, but you can find Victorian reproductions – I think they are all extraordinarily beautiful.

I'd like to hear your opinion
