A Visit to the Minster with the Va

Wimborne Minster

Continuing on with a couple of rolls of film through my Rolleicord Va, this time I loaded up a roll of Ilford Delta 100. In this case a better choice would have been the 400. That aside, I stopped off at Wimborne and it’s Minster. It has along history being founded in 704 when Cuthburga, sister to Ina, King of the West Saxons, founded a nunnery on the site. The nunnery was destroyed by the Danes in 1013, but the prsent building dates from 1120.

I didn’t make a photo of the Altar this visit, as the organ is currently having an extensive repair. There were bit’s of organ all over the place. In fact just as I was leaving I was asked how I got in! I explained that I just walked through the open door, and pointed to my way out! Apparently the building was closed and the door accidentally left open! Never mind – no harm done!
