St. Edmunds: Hammer Beam study

St. Edmunds: Hammer Beam study, originally uploaded by fotofacade.

It is hard to see the cross braces which take the support of the roof - the long exposure reveals intricate carving in floral motifs. This is a photo of each support to the hammerbeam looking upwards

Check out the full set (which is being added to regularly)

Saint Edmund's", Falinge near Rochdale - is a real tour-de-force. Built in the 1870's for £28, 000 (when a good church cost £4000). It is a Masonic Church and Pevsner says that it has symbolism to rival the Da Vinci Code Rosslyn Chapel. I am photographing the interior because it is due to close this month.
