St Catherine, Leigh, Glos

Mr Neil had definitely been here before. West tower, nave and chancel in one with south porch and south transept. A niche on the west face of the tower has a headless statue of St Catherine, her wheel clearly shown. Inside the view east was blocked by a large Union Jack inspired banner and below three large crosses on stands decorated with poppies. Mr Neil posted pictures from here with a load of paper angels suspended in the chancel in the past. So it seems the locals like to decorate their church for special occasions. Benches have been removed in the front half of the nave and replaced with royal blue chairs. Lovely glass in south transept by Mayer & Co.

When we came out the sun was trying to break through the cloud, but there was less than an hour of daylight left so we called it a day. By the time I was back on the M5 the low sun had fully broken out and I was driving into it for lengthy periods.
