Church of the Holy Cross, Ilam, Staffordshire
The village Church at Ilam hides behind the village of the same name, in the valley below Bunster Hill and Dove Dale. Its distinctive ‘Saddleback’ Bell Tower, whilst not unique in church architecture, still adds a touch of style to this 17th century church. It is, as with many old religious buildings, believed that is was built on an religious location used as early as the Saxon times. Restoration and additions where made in the 1800’s.
My best description would be ‘small but beautiful’ both inside and out. So pop in and take a look…
Holy Cross, Ilam, is perhaps at it’s best, on a sunny spring morning, just as the early mist and dew rises to reveal it nestling behind a ring of trees with Bunster Hill as its backdrop.
Wherever you are this Spring Sunday…..
Please Remember ….
Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
