St. Bartholomew's Church, Orford, from the North-West

The Recording Britain project includes two views of St Bartholomew's Church in Orford; this one, by the talented amateur Louisa Puller, is the more conventional of the two, with its view of the church in high summer, looking across a motley group of cottages, back gardens and lean-tos. The other view, by Jack L. Airy, shows the church from the opposite side, its ruined tower banked in snow. Such repetition is unusual in the scheme, but was felt to be justified because the two pictures are so different in conception and in character.
