St. Thomas a Becket Church Warblington – 38/15

This picture was taken about a year ago but fits quite nicely into the time of the year. We were walking a part of the Solent Way between Emsworth and Langstone and back. The Royal Oak in Langstone is always a welcome stop halfway 🙂

I’ve done this walk a few times now but never stopped and had a look at the St. Thomas a Becket Church in Warblington. The Solent Way goes across the cemetery but when the tide is low I usually prefer to walk on the beach and deviate slightly from the original Solent Way. The deviation can be a bit tricky and wet when the tide is high but exactly that got me to visit this old church.

It is not exactly know when the church was built but some of the building elements that are still there today date back to the Saxon times. However, it is also know that Warblington was once a Roman settlement and remains of Romans have been found in the church yard. It’s definitely worth a visit when you are in the area.

...you will find a pot of gold. The truth is that none has ever found the end of the rainbow or the promised pot of gold. I haven't found them either but I have found many wonderful places during my travels in Europe. Come follow me and see the world with my eyes. Whenever I think I have found the most wonderful place, I know that I will continue to search, discover and travel. I know that I will find new places and that I will again think that they are the most wonderful places that I've ever seen. This a personal project where I want to share my travel experience, passion for photography and creativity with you.
