St Helen's Church Steeple

The steeple provided a fixed point before the days of GPS and Sat Navs. I for one can still easily imagine the sun going round the earth.

It goes down behind the clouds.

and reappears

then goes down for good. Its an illusion I know. It is easy to forget that we are not the centre and we are the ones turning, around and around like a fairground ride.

Beautiful pictures. Someday this will all be a chapter in a history book, and St. Helen's will still look on as witness.
