RAF Cosford Nave looking West, Donington



RAF Cosford Photo: a fantastic RAF Cosford Photograph Featuring Nave looking West, Donington

Photograph Taken On Sunday, May 31, 2009


Donington barely registers as a village in its own right since it is so close to the northern edge of Albrighton as to be part of it, and their churches are very close together. However unlike its near neighbour St Cuthbert's maintains the feel of a rural church owing to its setting, very much typical Shropshire with its richly hued red sandstone that seems to exude warmth when it basks in the sun. It is also a very rewarding place to visit, if one can get inside. The interior shows much Victorian restoration in the nave arcade and chancel arch, but beyond are some fine elements of medieval glass surviving in the north chancel windows which are the most noteworthy features within. There is also good glass by Hardmans and others. My photos here are not good alas being from my only visit over a decade ago, handheld and rather hurried. I was however lucky, having arrived and found the church locked without a keyholder notice I was about to give up when a lady approached with a key; she was unlocking ahead of a service (a baptism I think) and kindly let me in for a quick look around before the attendees started to turn up. I would like to return here sometime for some better photos of the glass, but I think it might be wise to check ahead if so to see if the church can be opened. www.albrightonparishchurch.org.uk/stcuthberts.htmView image on Flickr
