For the Sunday theme I remembered that a year ago I was in the vicinity of Holy Trinity Church, Horfield (a suburb of Bristol). The website tells:Holy Trinity Church was originally dedicated to St Andrew. The earliest known clergyman associated with it was William Grekelad, mentioned in the will of John Walters who died in 1502 and wished to be buried in 'the church of St Andrew at Horfield.' The tower was constructed in 1612 but the rest of the church was rebuilt and enlarged in 1847.

All the greenery serving as a natural framing for Holy Trinity Church also works well to complement the grey stonework of the church. Often times hard for me to get my head around figures such as "...the tower was constructed in 1612...". I just try to imagine what the view would have been like from where I live in the year 1612. In that year in what would become Canada St. John's in Newfoundland was nearly 30 years old while Quebec City had been founded in 1608.
