Glory be to God our Father and His Son Jesus Christ, our Lord and Saviour forever who liveth amongst us through His Holy Spirit. Amen For God so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son,Jesus Christ, that whoever believes in Him will be saved. It is as the scripture says- he who believes( in Jesus Christ)- from him will flow streams of living water. May the living waters flow forth from this church! Amen

#28Weert St Martins church from the 15 Century. Was closed even though the bells were ringing out I could not get in - on a Sunday. So I guess it's only open for service. Aparently the vault paintings are worth a view. #railthetrails

La Hougue Bie

La Hougue Bie is a Neolithic ritual site which was in use around 3500 BC. Hougue is a Jèrriais/Norman language word meaning a \'mound\' and comes from the Old Norse word haugr. The site consists of 18.6m long passage chamber covered by a 12.2m high mound. The site was first excavated in 1925 by the Société Jersiaise. Fragments of twenty vase supports were found along with the scattered remains of at least eight individuals. Gravegoods, mostly pottery, were also present. At some time in the past, the site had evidently been entered and ransacked.

In Western Europe, it is one of the largest and best preserved passage graves and the most impressive and best preserved monument of Armorican Passage Grave group. Although they are termed \'passage graves\', they were ceremonial sites, whose function was more similar to churches or cathedrals, where burials were incidental.
