One cold winters morning I wandered off in an attempt to learn something about this new town we had moved to. I came across this little church and have to say that from the moment I saw it I was enchanted. The post sign says..
'St. George's Church is one of Esher's oldest public buildings with most of the structure being 16th Century Tudor. Princess Charlotte-heir to George IV~and Prince Leopold~who became the first King of the Belgians~ worshipped here when they lived at Claremont after their marriage in 1816.
Queen Victoria, Leopold's niece attended services when visiting her uncle and later came with Prince Albert. When Christ Church was completed in 1854 St. George's ceased to the the Parish Church. Restored by the community in 1965 it remains a consecrated building now in the care of the Churches Conservations Trust. Several services are held each year. It is also a venue for music and the arts.'
Tucked away behind the town sits a charming church...
The clock and the angel with the star peaked my curiosity.
Tick tock..what an interesting clock...
The textures in the building are wonderful
From afar and close up
A bit of this and a bit of that...
Within the church stood the tree of life....
Once I explored the outside I had to know more. What I discovered is as enchanting as the outside.
I will save that for the next post :)
