St Mary, Almondsbury, South Gloucestershire

The next parish to Winterbourne, giving its name to the M4/M5 interchange, so admired by holidaymakers in the Summer that they stop for ages to view its component parts, although I suspect not by choice! This is one of my favourite SGlos churches, and as ever the church was open. OK it is not as "isolated" as Winterbourne, but a completely different attitude, and a lady was busy refreshing the floral displays and welcoming. She left shortly afterwards leaving me too it. There have been changes since I was last here, but all done in sympathy with the building. The church stands in what is called now Lower Almondsbury, as there is much Almondsbury high above spire level on the A38.
