I am John Margetts. I am a very keen photographer with an interest in old churches. ┬áMy preference is for the smaller village churches that have been the hub of the community for many centuries. These churches are almost organic. They grow and develop and age with their community. Most of them are well loved even where they are no longer used for their primary function. When I meet the locals in my travels, they are usually passionate about ‘their’ church and are delighted that someone is taking a keen interest.

I cannot claim to know much about church architecture or history – I am most certainly not an expert – but I am learning as I go around the county. I have my trusty Pesvner to give me brief notes on the key features and I also use the Interweb to garner as much information as I can but my main guide here is my own pair of eyes.
