Friends have asked about the Chagall windows (see photo in yesterday's post).
They are in All Saints Church in Tudeley, near Tonbridge in Kent, and we were amazed and delighted by them. You enter the church, not very big, mentioned in the Domesday Book. There has been a church on this site since the 7th century.
The light is intensely blue, and the silence is deep. We just fell quiet and walked around the twelve windows very slowly, taking in the blue and the silence - it was the most meditative space I think I have ever experienced. Profoundly beautiful.
Then a coach party arrived - noisily! But we had that 15 minutes or so of it to ourselves and the stillness of it stays with me. It was one of the highlights of the holiday - a very sensuous experience.
