The First Church of Christ, Scientist

My recent travels in the US took me to Boston and past this imposing church. The first church of Christ in Boston is the mother church of the Christian Science Movement and was built at the end of the 19th century.

Parish Church of Ickleton

I am fortunate to work within walking distance of two English villages (Ickleton and Hinxton). The parish church of St. Mary Magdalene in Ickleton dates back to the 11th century and is a fine example of a medieval Norman church. A serious fire in 1979 exposed wall paintings from the 12th century. The following picture is from my walk yesterday when exactly at 1PM, the church bell tolled!
