Heavy Metal in St Anne’s Church, Woodplumpton

Heavy Metal in Church?

Forget Guns n’ Roses and Iron Maiden.  I doubt even the appropriately-named  Judas Priest would have had a playlist suitable for this quiet village church.

For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Metal  I have some photographs of literally heavy metal from yesterday’s visit to a local church.

St Anne’s Church in the Lancashire village of Woodplumpton dates back to the 12th or 13th centuries, and, whilst it was mostly rebuilt in the 1630’s, one wall and a couple of stained glass windows remain of the original build.

This bell, sitting just outside the bell-tower, dates from 1596:
