| St Mary the Virgin (Wirksworth) |

|Description ||The Wirksworth Stone - 8th or 9th Century carved coffin lid depicting Christ washing the feet of the disciples, the crucifixion, the body of the BVM being borne for burial, the presentation of Christ in the temple before Simeon, Christ's descent into Hell, Christ's Ascension, the Annunciation, and the Mission of the Church.|
The picture was very difficult to take; direct sunlight coming through the window, spacial constraints, and the church busying ahead of a Choral Evensong; not that pleased with this shot, but it was the best I could do on this visit.
|You shouldn't apologise...it's a fine photo! Thankyou
