ARTISTS AT ST. MARY'S

Di sent this account of the Adventurous Artists Visit to Eling Church:-

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 Church of St Mary 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.
