January sunshine illuminates the Cathedral Church of All Saints, Derby.
All Saints was promoted to Cathedral status in 1927, so fairly new as English Cathedrals go, but the original religious heritage was established in the 10th century.
The Cathedral is also the home of the famous Bakewell Rood Screen, a masterpiece of the craftsman’s art in iron.
All Saints Church was also the chosen final resting place, of perhaps the second most important Elizabethan Woman in England after Queen Elizabeth I…. namely Elizabeth, countess of Shrewsbury (c1522-1608) more popularly known as Bess of Hardwick.
Whatever you are doing this Sunday and indeed for the rest of the week….
Please Remember ….
Stay Safe …. Be Kind…. Look After Each Other
