Trelystan

The church at Trelystan

Friday was a day for much looked forward to meet-up of a dozen Purplecoo folk and began with a nice lunch around a huge circular table in a pleasant pub in Shropshire followed by a visit to the nearby little church of St Mary's in Trelystan which sits alone on a hill, beside two ancient yews in the middle of a field and with views to die for.

I shall remember this day for its sunshine, its wealth of snowdrops, its icy wind and the lovely warmth from the people I met for the very first time after having only known them over the Internet.

There are a couple more photos on my photo blog.

Cait, there is such wonderful light and spirit in you photos of that rare day.

It still amazes me that you all were able to actually meet. Well done, all. xo

So very , very English
especially the hymn numbers.
Was horrified by the story below. I was adopted as a child
and there were various pieces of information hidden
but nothing
as awful as this.
Glad you revealed this.

Hi Cait, I am now even more envious of those who made it to Trelystan. Ah well another time. Love your pictures, but am intrigued as to why people seem to be marching twenty paces apart. (But maybe it just happened like that when you were taking the picture). I still don't know who everyone is. Fxx
