Thursday’s walk down the Chalke Valley showed me once again what wonderful holy places these churches are. They serve the community in all kinds of ways. The warmth of the welcome in each place was marvellous. Alvediston (pop 77) had 140 for its carol service last Christmas. Unbeatable!
Here’s Holy Trinity Bowerchalke.
Up early to get to Devizes in good time for the 9.00am service. The Pashley is loaded with episcopal clobber: ready and waiting.
