We've removed the original swipe-compatible viewing method. It didn't work for a lot of people - so we reinstated something similar to the old image viewer - bit which works better for mobile and tablet devices.

St Margaret, Bowers Gifford Church - I discovered this church by accident. I would obviously have eventually found it methodically, but I was driving home from having photographed Vange, when I saw Church Road. Being in Churchcrawling mode, I had to follow the road. I was glad I did. The sunset was beginning as these pictures were taken.

St Margaret, Bowers Gifford Church - This tower is supported by just one buttress in the SW corner, but it is huge. Notice that the two windows in this wall of the tower are not aligned with one another. The upper, shuttered window appears to be central. Interestingly, in the rebuild plans of 1829-1830, shown at 
Church Plans Online, the windows are shown to be aligned.
