Hughenden Church

St Michael and All Angels Church, "The Church in the Park", can be seen nestling on the hillside with the sixteenth century Church House alongside it. Set in the middle of Hughenden Park. The church is unique in that it has the only memorial to a commoner (Benjamin Disraeli) erected by a monarch (Queen Victoria).

Wonderful photo
John Prior: Very kind Vintage.
Queen Vic was very fond of Disraeli but she disliked Gladstone very much I believe. Great place to visit and this is a fine picture of the church
John Prior: Thanks Bill, yes Dizzy always flattered her.
I don't know if it is the blue and the green that make the colors of the church or if it is the color of the church that make the blue and the green but there is a good balance in the photo. The photo gets better when being looked at and makes it to the next round!
John Prior: Thanks Pekka, in in the end it is the light that really counts.
That dark sky really highlights this church. Very nice.
John Prior: Thanks Sheila, I was lucky with light and sky.
