Breedon church


This is a shot I took of the church at Breedon on the Hill recently.  I have posted about this place before (here and there).  The church is lit up at night and is quite a striking sight, situated as it is on the top of a hill.

Yesterday after work I switched on Radio Derby and heard this commentator say:

I was surprised to read that 61 percent of children in this country don’t know what Ashford is.

For a minute or so I thought that was a strange remark. After all, Ashford is a town in Kent and hosts a station that is serviced by Eurostar. But it’s not a big deal, surely?

But after a few moments of confusion I discovered that the commentator was trying to pronounce Auschwitz.  Anyway, Radio Leeds had a more interesting program on Auschwitz, and Tim Daley’s commemorative trip. And you can listen again to the program segment here (3 min 05 sec).
