Let's hope they have better weather than we have at the moment, still tipping it down.

I have been to a couple of weddings there. People seem to like the settings. I have to admit I liked it much more than the place over the road on the corner of Horse Shoes Lane.

Phil I think I have just deciphered your previous post.
You mention the Church over the road in Horse Shoes Lane. That is a Catholic Church. But I think you are mixing Yardley Church with Sheldon Parish Church, (St Giles). Church Road. St Giles is a Norman church with a square Norman tower.
Yardley Old Church (St Edburgha's) is just along Church Rd from The Yew Tree. Yardley parish church is around 700 years old and has a spire, it was there before Columbus discovered America. SB

I am even more confused now, yes I was thinking of the church in Church Rd Sheldon. I don't know why that is. Perhaps someone up there is getting back at me by puddling my brain.

Trouble is Phil, they are both in Church Road. One is Church Road Sheldon, and the other is Church Road Yardley. They are only a mile or so apart.

As you will know Churches are not a favourite subject with me. Although I admire the architecture of many of the older ones and think they have great beauty . It's the rituals that go on inside that sets my teeth on edge.

We had a very nice afternoon out in Yardley Village today. We started with a guided tour of St. Edburgha's then we went round six lovely private back gardens. We had a cream Tea in the old Yardley School (which is older than Blakesley hall). The weather was kind to us. All in all it was a nice day.
