St. Nicholas at first appears to be a small Victorian country church but on closer inspection has many more interesting features than its modest exterior might indicate. Subjects of interest are the Knollys Chapel and Tomb (17th C), an early English font (13th C), monumental Brass of Robert de Grey (14th C), Aumbry (13th C) and other pre-Reformation features.More pictures of Rotherfield Greys by Edward Lever

Very interesting Edward, I like all the different types of stonework. Very well taken.
Superb detail as always and a charming church.
Nicely done Edward and good detail as Vince says
An excellent shot of a most interesting church. I can't quite understand though why the tower appears perfectly verticle and the right hand part of the building is not.
Thank you for the comment, Paul. The tower appears perfectly vertical because it was my intention for it to appear so. After all, it is the main feature of the building, and the eye gets drawn to it. There is always some leaning with these wide-angle shots, and a judgement must be made as to the main feature you want to be vertical. I know correction is possible using Lightroom or similar applications, but in my opinion the result often looks un-natural. My usual approach is to try to get the result I want at the time of shooting.
