Fotheringhay Church


Recommended Posts

A famous church! I've been there a couple of times when I lived in Peterborough, all to do with Mary Queen of Scots who was imprisoned there on her to London for execution..

Interesting murals that were covered up with plaster!

Great stuff Dave, cracking looking building, and what a history. Amazing that we both had a go at churches today. Like you I want to go back when those nights are just that little bit darker.

Do you remember the Sandy Denny track, absolutely haunting voice, and one of my favourite Sandy tracks..
