AN ELING EXPERIENCE WITH A DIFFERENCE
What did the Adventurous Artists do on a wet May morning in Eling? Four of us took the opportunity to experience the glorious
the Virgin on Eling Hill, by kind permission of Graham Norman Church Warden.
The church dates from the 9th century and has many beautiful features.
The decorated roof beams, massive Norman pillars, early gothic arches
and ancient stone memorials were impressive enough. Yet
the later additions - such as the delicate
wooden filigree of the rood screen and
large oil painting of the Last Supper behind the
altar - are exceptionally fine. June, Jean and Di sketched the
view from the nave while Ali drew an angel from one of the stained-glass windows.
It was a great pleasure to visit the sumptuous interior, which
is in complete contrast to the area around the church. Church of St Mary
