  7. Gorgeous church facade. So beautifully designed. I am amazed that one side seems to be attached to a terrace house.

  8. Wonderful facade. That looks like a rose window above the main doorway.

  9. Interesting - here in Scotland the glebe was the land around the church, the produce from which belonged to the minister.
