Smisby

Smisby

After all the recent pictures taken from my bedroom window I thought it might be an idea to show one in the opposite direction, as it were.

This photo is taken halfway between Smisby and the Ashby by-pass. In the centre of the photograph is the church. To the left of the church is Smisby Manor.  The church has a clockwork mechanism that sets off a series of chimes on every hour, day or night. During the day you don’t notice the chimes, but at night when it is quiet the sound travels and the chimes are penetrating. I would imagine that it could be quite easy for someone to get into the church at night and break the clockwork mechanism to stop the chiming.

But actually they don’t leave church doors unlocked at night-time any more. Perhaps they never really did.
