-Excerpt from “Two sides of the same coin” by Archer
Day 3 of #folktaleweek is about witches. They used to hold witches in St Nicholas Kirk in Aberdeen before they were tried and sentenced but one story I've heard is that they were holding 20 or more women in the chapel when the old wooden spire caught fire and all the women inside perished. Not sure if this tragic tale happened or not but an interesting and sad story nonetheless. Archaeological and archival evidence of the chapel being used for holding women still exists in the form of a two inch metal ring on the wall of the chapel which the archives explain was used for this purpose. . . . #scottishwitchcraft #witchesofinstagram #witch #witchcraft #stnicholaskirk #kirk #scottishhistory #fire #aberdeenhistory #folklore #churchspire #folktaleweek2018 #pencildrawing #penandink #smallstories #aberdeen #seeninthedeen #scottishillustrator

Thought this was a bit of a spooky shot from Clumber Park at the weekend. Or it might just be my imagination running away with itself after binge-watching The Haunting of Hill House over the last week. . . #clumberpark #ntmidlands #nationaltrust #gothicarchitecture #gothic #churchspire #nottinghampost #wearenottinghamshire #bbcnottingham #bbceastmidlands #1ukshot #gloriousbritain

Autumn sunlight breaking through onto the medieval All Saints Church in Bisley. It is said that the Luftwaffe used the spire to mark their course on bombing raids of Gloucester during WW2. #bisley #churchspire #medieval #autumnlight #primepurchase #buyingagents #propertysearch #gloucestershire

The spire of St Stephens Church foregrounded by graffiti at the Newtown Festival. A church which could be in any English town is joined by exotic palm trees. This is a land of strange combinations and incongruous sights. #pominoz #newtown #sydneynewtown #newtownsydney #churchspire #sydneychurch #anglicanchurch #newtownfestival2018 #newtownfestival #ilovesydney #citylife #cityofvillages #incongruous #juxtaposition #incongruouspalmtree #incongruouspairings #sydneysider #graffiti #palmlove #palmtrees
In the background Basilica of Our Lady of Mount Carmel (Roman Catholic). Although Saint Paul’s escaped serious damage in WWII, The Basilica was badly damaged and had to be rebuilt. Originally built in 1570 it was rebuilt from 1958-1981. In the foreground Saint Paul’s Pro-Cathedral (Anglican)1844. The survival of Saint Paul’s was a testament to those that fought to protect Malta. It contains memorials of the Navy, Army and Air Force.
View from my window this morning. The church spire, and the outlet rooftops and their Christmas tree. #saturdaymorning #viewfrommywindow #church #churchspire #rooftops #streetlights #sunrise #christmastree #autumnaldays #outletcentre
"Let not the sun go down upon your wrath" Ephesians 4:26 (King James version) Good advice to go with a dramatic autumn sunset. This one is in Aberdeen, Scotland, and shows the spire of Ruthrieston West Church ⛪ peeping out from among the trees 🌳in silhouette. #aberdeen #scotland #sunset #puestadelsol #sonnenuntergang #crepuscule #evening #eveningsky #autumnsky #dramaticsky #clouds #letnotthesungodownuponyourwrath #biblicalquotation #wordsofwisdom #ephesians #ruthrieston #ruthriestonwestchurch #silhouette #churchspire #spire #trees #skyatdusk #dusk #sky #autumn #herbst #automne #otoño #church
