Inside the church

 

Yesterday we saw a postcard of the outside of Market Lavington Church used to send a Christmas message. Today we’ll look at the inside of the building on another postcard.

This dates from over 100 years ago, but churches don’t change much and you have to look for differences in details.

Perhaps the most obvious is the message on the end wall, above the window which reads, ‘Glory be to God on High’.

Sharp eyed viewers will notice organ pipes on the extreme right. Soon after this photo was taken the organ was moved to a location in the chancel.

This card, like yesterday’s one has been sent.

The card was sent from Market Lavington in 1918. May sent the card to Mrs Clarke

The card was sent from Market Lavington in 1918. May sent the card to Mrs Clarke.

It was sent in 1918, but the photo is at least ten years earlier than that. It was posted in market Lavington.

Almost inevitably we can’t identify the ‘May’ who sent it or the Mrs Clarke who received it.
