Stydd Chapel, Ribchester and Bewerley Grange

The LMS magazine arrived today and the Lancaster Diocese Rep does a fine job of what I was unable to do - namely to attend the Mass, because of the atrocious weather returning from Cologne and to photograph the event. Mrs. Ackers does a fine job. Thanks to her.

I understand that there will be a Mass at Stydd later this year when the longer days are with us. Watch this blog. God willing I'll be able to get there this time.

Ribchester is, as its name suggests, an original Roman Settlement and at one time featured on the Time Team television programme. There is a fine Parish Church and an interesting little museum near the Church.
The photo here reminds me of the medieval chapel at Bewerley Grange, Pateley Bridge, North Yorkshire where there will be a Missa cantata on Tuesday February 17th. at 11.30a.m. This is deliberately in half term. Please consider hearing this Mass if you are in the vicinity.
