Although I wouldn’t consider myself a religious person, I am often drawn to churches and cathedrals. I suppose it helps that these buildings are often some of the most impressive examples of architecture in the world.

When I visited Tiggywinkles recently, I drove through a chocolate box village in Buckinghamshire called Haddenham. I felt compelled to stop and take some photographs of the local church, St Mary’s, which is a beautiful 13th century building situated by a pond.

It was a bright and sunny day, with the smell of freshly cut grass in the air. The pond was busy with wildlife but the rest of the village remained sleepy.
