Morning Outdoor Photoshoot

  • April 6, 2013 · 9:00 AM
  • St Laurence church Broughton

Within a stone's throw of the new builds on the outskirts of Milton Keynes, the rich Victorian stained glass of St Lawrence sheds light on one of the greatest Medieval treasures in the area - a series of stunning Medieval wallpaintings.

These exquisitely detailed pictures remained hidden behind plaster for 300 years before being rediscovered during a restoration in 1849.

The paintings include the Virgin Mary cradling the body of Christ (a Pieta) and St George killing the dragon, despite having lost his head when the ceiling was restored in the 15th-century as well as a Doom, St Helena and St Eligius and one of only two surviving Warning to Swearers in the country.

There are also some interesting memorials and lovely 19th-century stained glass.

Exit M1 at Junction 14, take A509 towards Milton Keynes. At first roundabout (Northfield) take A5130 and first right turn to Broughton into London Road, and past Broughton Hotel. Church in cul de sac left off London Road.

Nearest railway stations: Milton Keynes Central (5 miles) and Woburn Sands (3 miles). Bus route no 17.

    I think these little mini trips work really well. They've brought my interest in photography out of years of hibernation, though judging my the clever photos uploaded looks like I've someway to catch up.

    Abington Park, Northampton is interesting. The top half has a bandstand, aviary, museum and cafe. The bottom half has two lakes, ducks, and a little garden area.

    I got a photo magazine a couple of months ago and it suggests a winter photo shoot with people with hats, scarfs, furry coats etc. Prefere shooting with models than members of the gp.

    Also I'd like to do visis some car shows (if they're not all rainined off this year!)

      thanks Brian... we can certainly do a people winter shoot. I love classic cars so the answer is yes.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
