Heute noch eine kleine Bildreihe der Dorfkirche Kloster Wulfshagen. Vor einigen Wochen war ich dort. Durch die großen normal verglasten Fenster konnte man in die verschlossene Kirche gucken. :) das ist auch mal super gelaufen. ;) .
[text vom alten Bild:] Ein kleiner Fachwerkbau in einem winzigen Dorf, welches für sein Gestüt und die vielen Pferde bekannt ist, ist eine wunderschöne kleine Dorfkirche. Der Ort liegt zwischen Ribnitz, Marlow und Sanitz. Vermutlich Ende des 17. Jahrhundert wurde der Hallenbau errichtet. Es gab auch hier schon eine Vorgängerkirche. Das einschiffiger Langenhaus besitzt einen kleinen holzverkleideten nach Westen ausgerichteten Glockenturm. Die Ausstattung ist schlicht gehalten. Es gibt eine hölzerne Tonnendecken. Einen Schnitzaltar mit zwölf Reliefs zur Mariengeschichte und Passion Christi wurde um 1500 errichtet. Die Kanzel und die Empore folgten erst um 1800. durch die tiefen Glasfenster kann man auch bei verschlossener Tür in die Kirche gucken. Die Kirchenglocke hat keine typische Inschrift, nur der Balken dazu. Dieser wird auf 1696 datiert.
Ein ortsansässiger Verein bemüht sich um die Restaurierung und Instandhaltung der durchaus großen Dorfkirche. .
St Giles‘ Cathedral, Royal Mile, Edinburgh
King David I founded St Giles’ in 1124, during which time the bond between Rome and the Scottish church was becoming closer. St Giles’ was built on the very eastern edge of Edinburgh and pre-dates most of the Old Town. When David I later founded the Abbey of Holyrood he gave the abbot permission to build houses up the ridge towards St Giles’, establishing the Canongate burgh and forming what is now known as the Royal Mile.
1745 – Arrival of Bonnie Prince Charlie announced at St Giles’
The Jacobite cause gathered momentum across Scotland, especially in the Highlands, and in 1745 Bonnie Prince Charlie’s arrival into Edinburgh was announced at St Giles’. The Magistrates of Edinburgh assembled in the church to receive the message commanding them to surrender the city. Bonnie Prince Charlie’s supporters lined the Royal Mile to see him on his way to set up a Jacobite Court at Holyrood Palace.
📍Radcliffe Camera, Oxford 🇬🇧
I’m so terrified of heights but I climbed the steepest spiral staircase at University Church of St Mary the Virgin for this shot! 📸
A few months ago I did a solo day trip to Oxford from London. I always get a sense of a spiritual awakening when I explore alone. I believe it’s so important to be able to enjoy your own company 💟

I loved exploring the beautiful interior of Wells Cathedral. Built between 1175 and 1490, it has been described as ‘the most poetic of the English cathedrals.’

Carew Castle (Welsh: Castell Caeriw) is a castle in the civil parish of Carew in Pembrokeshire, Wales. The famous Carew family, who take their name from this site, still own the castle and lease it to the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park for administration. The current high-walled structure with a complex of rooms and halls around the circumference was created in about 1270 by Nicholas de Carew (d.1297),concurrent with (and influenced by) the construction of the Edwardian castles in North Wales. At this time, the outer ward was also walled in.The de Carews fell on hard times in the post-Black Death period and mortgaged the castle. It fell into the hands of Rhys ap Thomas, who made his fortune by strategically changing sides and backing Henry Tudor just before the battle of Bosworth.
Rewarded with lands and a knighthood, he extended the castle with luxurious apartments with many Tudor features in the late 15th century. An inner doorway is decorated with three coats of arms: those of Henry VII, his son Arthur and Arthur's wife Catherine of Aragon. This allegiance turned sour. Rhys' grandson Rhys ap Gruffudd fell out of favour and was executed by Henry VIII for treason in 1531. The castle thus reverted to the crown

Aberdour is among the oldest masonry castles still standing in Scotland. Hidden in the complex are the remains of a two-storey hall-house, which may date to the early to mid-1100s.
Its walls are built from ashlar (square-cut stone) and look remarkably like those of the nearby St Fillan’s parish church, which dates to the mid-1100s.
Robert the Bruce granted Aberdour to his nephew, Thomas Randolph, Earl of Moray, in 1325. He had served his uncle well during the Wars of Independence.
But castle and lands soon changed hands again. In 1342, Moray’s younger son passed them on to Sir William Douglas, a brave soldier known as ‘The Flower of Chivalry’. His descendants became earls of Morton and lords of Dalkeith.
In the 1400s, the Douglases heightened the hall-house and made it into a more typical Scottish tower house. Further ranges of impressive stone buildings were gradually added over generations. These eventually replaced the family rooms in the tower house.
Jedburgh Abbey, Scottish Borders
Jedburgh had been an important religious site for 300 years when the Augustinians arrived in 1138. David I wanted his new abbey to show his power and authority over the border region – a ‘debatable land’. The abbey still impresses today, almost 900 years later, despite war and weather. The cloister is mostly reduced to stone foundations, but the great abbey church of St Mary the Virgin stands almost complete.
It took more than 70 years to largely complete the building – during which time its status changed from priory to abbey. Architectural fashions changed too – from Romanesque to Gothic.
Set so close to the border, and with its royal castle and wealthy abbey, Jedburgh was a tempting target. It was frequently fought over during the Wars of Independence (1296–1356) and again in the 1400s and 1500s.
These, my friends, are my new obsession. My I introduce to you the Valais Blacknose Sheep and wee bairn. I had the life-goals opportunity to photograph these sheep for a farm in the Highlands and may I just say that waiting for the film scans to come back has been a lesson in patience. ⠀
If you’ve been to Scotland, you know that the majority of sheep there are A-holes. Not these guys. They are sweet and cuddly and friendly and fluffy and I’m just going to die! I want one! I want Elfie!
Check out my stories to see a few more pictures of these adorable creatures!⠀ #valaisblacknosesheep#valaisblacknose#valaisblacknoselamb#thisfarminglife
