The lake at Emberton Park near Olney with the spire of St Peter And St Paul’s church in the distance
The top of the famous spire at St.Peter and St.Paul has a weather cock inscribed:
“I never crow but stand to show whence winds do blow. 1829”.The top of the spire was restored in 1884 and is a different colour. The spire reaches a height of 185 feet [56.5 m.].
I took these photographs of the 14th century church on an HTC Android phone. Then sent them to my iPad for enhancing with ‘Photgene’ and ‘Pixlmatic’ apps.
On July 9th 1984, the South Transept of York Minster was engulfed by flames causing approximately £1m of damage.
There were various theories as to the cause ranging from UFOs to Divine Retribution. But it was later confirmed that lightning was the most likely cause. But there were many who said that there was NO lightning that night, but there was; I saw it. There was even a theory that, as York Minster is on a ley line a high level of energy was generated after the enthronement of The Bishop of Durham, and the controversy surrounding him and his statement about the Virgin Birth.
