I frequently cycle through Charlton Musgrove parish turning off at Barrow Lane.  Each time I pass a road sign pointing  down Rectory Lane but I have never gone down – the bike ride is long enough without adding a few extra miles .  Today those extra miles of cycling in glorious autumn sunshine seems like a good idea.

The church was a lot further down the road than I expected.  Quite a long way from is village.

And Finally…

Back down Barrow Lane I stopped to photograph the community church of St Johns.  Both churches are part of the Benefice of Charlton Musgrove, Cucklington and Stoke Trister with Bayford.  I have visited all recently except for the small chapel at Bayford.  I’ll need to put that right.
