Journey Through The Past

This is the Chantry Chapel, in a fuzzy photograph; but one I decided to use, as it captured the light of the sky, and the glow from the Chapel windows.
It's a cold January evening; when the wind cuts right through to the bones.
The River Calder beneath the bridge on which the Chapel stands, made the evening even colder. And the noise of the water is a continual background roar; silencing even the rush hour traffic, when you lean over the side of the bridge.

There are only 3 remaining Chantry Chapels in the country. As well as the one in Wakefield, there's one in Rotherham. I can never remember where the 3rd is!

This is the inside of the Chapel. There has been a lot of work done on it, to save it from ruination.
It's still used by Wakefield Diocese for services. Together with Wakefield Historical Society it is hoped that the Chapel can be used for other events, such as these exhibitions for the ArtWalk.
Here on the left, is my print '13moons'.
