St Andrew’s , Hambelton, Rutland

Beautiful church in the lovely village of Hambleton, carved angels and cherubim and even boasts windows by Edward Burne Jones.  I hadn’t realised just how picturesque all the villages around Rutland Water, actually were.  Limestone built cottages, some thatch, some stone tiled, all very unspoilt.

the carvngs inspired me to paint, not sure the effect is quite what I wanted, but I enjoyed painting with my easel out in the sunshine
