Pictures of Inside Pugin’s House and Inside Pugin’s Church in Ramsgate


Apologies first the whole contents of my camera card, I don’t use a flash when I visit historic buildings, so these are all hand held pictures, in many cases it was too dark for the camera’s sensors so many are also manually focused, hence several blurry ones.

I haven’t put more than 100 pictures on a page so they should load reasonably quickly, we started at the café by Westcliff boating pool, less then £20 for food and drink for me my wife and two of my children, there is also a free playground.

This the playground that is, enabled me to sketch the view from where I sat to eat my lunch and even get a little bit of it painted.

A bit of a walk along the cliff while my children cycled about, here are the pictures relating to that http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/laptop412b/index.htm and on to Pugin’s Grange, the pictures of the inside start about half way down this page http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/laptop412b/id3.htm more here http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/laptop412b/id4.htm and here http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/laptop412b/id5.htm and here http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/laptop412b/id6.htm

Then on to Pugin’s church now to be a shrine, always inclined to give a church a bit of a boost, pictures here http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/laptop412b/id7.htm

I was in the professional god bothering business once so I only really understand the rules for Anglican contemplative religiouss’, there is a sense in which they don’t really have an individual identity, if you look at this last lot some were taken in St Augustine’s graveyard, the ones for the monks start DOM, when they have filled up one grave with DOM and one stone with what their bodies were once called, they start on another one.

Some questions for the observant next.    

 What date and country of origin to you reckon this stained glass is.

 The house is gothic revival, what are the marble pillars and mantle doing there.

Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.
