St Michael and All Angels Parish Church

Yesterday's photo of carved stone heads was taken outside Ashton's Parish Church of St Michael and All Angels. Today's photo is looking upwards from almost the same spot, towards the fine tower with its gargoyles stretching far outwards. Although the present church building dates back to the 15th century (replacing an even earlier church) most of the outside of the building was re-constructed in Victorian times. It is possible that the carved stone heads replaced earlier weather-worn heads, such as can be found at Mottram church.


  1. That's a fantastic image. Love the angle on this.

  2. Most kind, Babooshka. It's not an easy church to photograph as there are other buildings very close up to it. On the side from which you get a clear view there is a major road running past. In any case, there is more detail visible in this close-up angled shot than there would be in a conventional angle.
