Christchurch Priory

We had a quiet day yesterday. Just pottered around Christchurch then came back to the hotel and put the tennis on- and Ailz did her cross stitch and I edited photos. Christchurch Priory is one of England's greatest churches- mainly Romanesque but with Perpendicular add-ons- and it has a Tree of Jesse which very largely escaped the attention of the little men with hammers.

Also a swoony memorial to Percy and Mary Shelley...
