Wandering around Dunmow this evening looking for a picture when I came across the local tennis courts. These are very well lit by these high floodlights positioned all around the court. No one was playing this evening...you can probably tell why from those clouds ;-)

Round the back of where I live is a little lane, Star Lane, that runs up into Market Place in Great Dunmow - this is it on a miserable, rainy, grey winters day...and it still looks great!

Probably the prettiest of all the Essex villages Finchingfield is a short drive from Dunmow and I popped up or a quick 30 minute visit late afternoon today.

 

The intention was to do some long exposures but the clouds weren't playing ball and, just to the right are some really dirty dark clouds that rather changed the look of this scene.

We've had some lovely weather over the last couple of days and I was sure we'd have a cracking sunset this evening...it just never happened. Still, Dunmow's Doctors Pond always makes a pleasant picture.

Our Tuesday BSCC meet on this particular week was to take sunsets over The Doctors Pond in Dunmow. It didn't produce any wonderful skies for us to shoot anything remarkable but this is the shot of the old Gaol House. This spelling survives from Anglo-Norman French Gaole The gaol is located in Mark's neighbours backyard and is attached to Marks house at the front.

 

Salisbury Coach Park, 11th September 2013.

Wandering around Dunmow on a cold evening looking for shots, I thought the various lights in town would make a slightly different shot of the High Street, turning them into out of focus bokeh.

Debbie gave me a colour challenge of purple this evening, as I was struggling to come up with something to photograph. This was fine, except, of course, I'm colour blind!

 

Not to worry - it got me out of the house and I took this photo of Dunmow High Street and Market Square from Stortford Road.

Apologies for the poor quality!

The Summer Solstice, aka the longest day, is probably not the right day to decide "tonight's the night for light painting". Sadly, I had seen, in my minds eye, the picture I wanted to make and the fact that I was only going to get an hour or so of darkness in which to take that picture was neither here nor there!

 

Fortunately I've been doing this photo a day lark for long enough now to know that experimental means, 9 times out of 10, no adequate picture for the daily photograph , so I took this emergency fall back picture earlier in the evening ;-) Of course, it does mean you have had a photograph of Doctor's Pond in Great Dunmow twice in two days.

 

By the way - can you spot the schoolboy error I made in the general tiding up of the image in Photoshop?

Processed and uploaded and have just cracked open a nice bottle of Newcastle Brown Ale.

Many thanks to the officers and to Essex Police for arranging and allowing me to get these photos.

I took a stroll around Dunmow this evening - down to the church and then back around the recreation ground, but it was my Doctors Pond photo from right at the beginning of the walk that immediately caught my eye...it will be interesting how the other, later shots come out.

Never having paid much attention to the moon before I started photography, I was surprised to find that it moves all over the place...so I hadn't realised that I would be able to include it in a shot of Doctors Pond from where I was shooting tonight.

 

I had popped out to photograph Dunmow High Street as the Christmas lights were put up today. Now, we are a very small town so I don't expect much...which is probably just as well...I didn't bother photographing them...

 

Not to worry - The Starr Restaurant always has a good tree and lights outside and this year is no exception, sadly, I don't like the shots I took of it - totally my fault!

 

So I tried the new Town Square which, rather bizarrely, is also a road...no tree, no lights...yet. The town council did have a very nice tree and lights here last year, I'm hoping I'm just a bit early to catch them this year ;-)

 

So, for a change ;-) you get Doctors Pond...it was freezing over and the ducks were having to stand on the ice in parts of the pond.

I took a long walk around Great Dunmow this afternoon and ended up coming out down by the new Police Station. It's strange how few pictures of this seem to exist online...so if you don't hear from me again I probably shouldn't have photographed it ;-)

This is one shot from a series of shots I took this evening. A Request from Australia lead to a rather long walk to Bigods Farm including unexpected sunsets, peacocks and renovations...http://www.markseton.co.uk/?p=4894 for the full story and more images

I popped out for a walk late afternoon/early evening and decided to head down to the Flitch Way in Dunmow. I've been on the Flitch Way at Little Dunmow and Little Canfield, but never in Great Dunmow. So off I set, thinking I knew exactly how to get to it...of course I didn't and ended up walking along a field edge by the A120 for some time. As luck would have it this actually joined the Flitch Way at Buttleys Lane.

 

The Flitch Way is on the site of the old Bishop's Stortford to Braintree railway line, long since removed in the 1950's but there is still the occasional piece of track lying around and brick bridges abound. I soon reached Dunmow Cutting - the deepest cutting on this line and now a haven to wild flowers and grasses. I was looking at the scabious' when I spotted this golden long horned moth resting. By the length of its horns it is a male.

Sunday started reasonably early for me as I had to complete my second assignment for the marketing diploma I'm currently taking. I wanted to spend the whole day at it so made sure I got out early to capture the days photograph.

 

It was a glorious, warm, autumn morning with just a hint of mist rising off the Chelmer and some lovely colours in the trees and bushes.

Playing with bulb setting and my cheap bulb timer we went out to play in the ice and snow this + field = stuck we got out...

If Tilty parish church in north west Essex, near Great Dunmow, were a used car then I would suspect it of being a 'cut and shunt'. Imagine the front half of a Mercedes car has been cut off and crudely welded onto the back half of a Ford Escort. That is the impression one gets when one approaches Tilty church for the first time.

 

www.flickr.com/photos/barryslemmings/sets/72157600091447965/ to see the full set.

 

The parish church of St Mary the Virgin at Tilty has a magnificent soaring chancel of about 1330 AD married to a low nave with an 18th century cupola bell turret. The effect is that something from the Baroque has been mismatched with high medieval. But simple appearances are deceptive as it is the nave which is the oldest part of the church, dating to around 1220. The nave appeared first, the high chancel was added about one hundred years later. The Baroque cupola is merely an 18th century addition.

 

The building was never intended as a parish church at all, it is actually the chapel outside the gate of the Cistercian Abbey of Tilty. Tilty Abbey was founded in 1153 by seven brethren as a subsidiary of Warden Abbey. The nave was built first and may have served the monks as a church while their abbey church was being built. Later it served the local population who were not allowed to enter the abbey and it was dedicated to St Thomas A Becket.

 

The great chancel was added around 1330 and, I suspect, the nave would have been brought up to the greater scale and same architectural standard as the chancel a few years later but for the arrival of the Black Death in England in 1348. While the guidebook makes no mention of this I suspect this is what happened. The plague effectively halved the population and killed off many skilled artisans and masons. Many building projects in this period were stalled or halted by the plague.

 

The Abbey was eventually dissolved in the 1535 and only one section of abbey wall remains in the field behind the church today. If you follow the footpath across this field you can find the derelict 19th century watermill which replaced the monks' original one. There are also traces of water management in the surrounding landscape such as fishponds.

 

The chapel was adapted as a parish church towards the end of the 16th century but retains some fine memorial brasses from the early 16th century.
