This is the Basilica of St Gregory the Great at Downside, although I have only ever called it just “Downside”. It’s a Catholic abbey, monastery and school that sits in the “no man’s land” between Chilcompton and Stratton on the Fosse, back in Somerset, near to where I was born.
This picture was taken on a frosty morning, and somehow the light seems to add a kind of painterly feel to the image. I have to say that I was disappointed that there was a car parked outside the buildings, as otherwise the image would have had a more “timeless” feel. Oh well.
You can find more images from around the world at Our World Tuesday.
You can find the latest post to my other blog by clicking the Paying Ready Attention image on the RHS of the screen.
Enjoy the pictures.
