The church in the park, Northampton, UK - [ENG/BG] - Travel with LightCaptured

in Pinmapple3 months ago

Greetings, travelers!

Today I would love to share with you the moments and the views I enjoyed around this beautiful church, built in the twelfth century. The locals call this old beautiful and I'd say charming small church "the church in the park".

Its official name, though, is St Peter & St Paul's Abington Church (https://www.abingtonchurch.org.uk/building-and-history/building-and-history-4070.php)

To tell you the truth, I do not know what brought us here. Our plans for that day were to spend some time only in the Abington park, but then there was this invisible force that acted as a powerful magnet and drove us inside the church yard. Now, after some time has passed and looking at my photos from that day, I could clearly say that power, that strong force, was Love.

That popular name, "the church in the park", is actually quite right, as the church is surrounded by the park and its cemetery is a part of the park too.

Reading the tombstones slightly reveals some quite interesting life stories, fairy-tales once told, perhaps forgotten, but not completely.

I think the photographs I took that day are quite unique.

The reason I think that is this colorful installation or I better say invitation to join "the Lord's Prayer Trail".

So, would you spend some time to talk to God?

The feeling to spend some time in that virtually empty yard was amazing. It was a business day and we could have it all to ourselves. The drawback to that was that the church building was closed so we couldn't enter it nor light a candle.

The positive side of that is having more time to walk around and appreciated the wonderful weather.

And of course, discover some interesting and cute details, which purpose will therefor remain a mystery to me.

DDH_3793.jpg

But hey, who knows... I may have the chance to enter it, and why not, attend to their main Sunday Service :)

Another stone, another story...

DDH_3795-2.jpg

DDH_3796.jpg

One door, that is an entrance to heavens or a haven?

DDH_3797.jpg

Such a peaceful place to rest...

DDH_3798.jpg

The tower has been repaired in 1957.

DDH_3801.jpg

Apart from the many small manifestations of Love, this day the brightest ones were the ribbons of prayer.

DDH_3802.jpg

Some of them wishing for Health, some others sending love messages to the ones missed much.

All the way to the street, covered of Love...

Населението в България, говорещо книжовен български език, за жалост се топи с прекалено бързи темпове. Никой не знае доколко е вероятно след около сто години, българският език да се превърне в мъртъв език, който "живее" само чрез останалото написано. Искрено се надявам това да не се окаже истина, затова искам да публикувам моите "Пътуващи истории" и на български. Това ще бъде и моят малък принос в опазването на звучния ни и богат майчин език.

Версия на български език:

Поздрави, пътешественици!

Днес бих искал да споделя с вас моментите и гледките, на които се насладих около тази красива църква, построена през дванадесети век. Местните хора наричат тази стара красива и бих казал очарователна малка църква „църквата в парка“.

Официалното ѝ име обаче е Abington Church St Peter & St Paul (https://www.abingtonchurch.org.uk/building-and-history/building-and-history-4070.php)

Честно да ви кажа, не знам какво ни доведе тук. Плановете ни за този ден бяха да прекараме известно време само в парка Абингтън, но тогава се появи тази невидима сила, която действаше като мощен магнит и ни накара да влезем в двора на църквата. Сега, след минаването на известно време и гледайки снимките си от този ден, мога ясно да кажа, че тази сила беше Любовта.

DDH_3788.jpg

Това популярно име "църквата в парка" всъщност е съвсем правилно, тъй като църквата е заобиколена от парка и гробището й също е част от парка.

DDH_3787.jpg

Разчитането на надгробните плочи леко разкрива някои доста интересни житейски истории, приказки, разказвани някога, може би забравени, но не напълно.

DDH_3789.jpg

Мисля, че снимките, които направих този ден, са доста уникални.

DDH_3790.jpg

Причината да мисля това е тази колоритна инсталация или по-добре да кажа покана да се присъедините към „Пътеката на Господната молитва“.

И така, бихте ли отделили малко време, за да говорите с Бог?

DDH_3790-2.jpg

Усещането да прекараш известно време в този почти празен двор беше невероятно. Беше работен ден и можехме да "имаме" двора само за себе си. Недостатъкът беше, че сградата на църквата беше затворена, така че не можехме да влезем в нея, нито да запалим свещ.

DDH_3791.jpg

Положителната страна на това е, че имах повече време за разходка и оцених прекрасното време.

DDH_3792.jpg

И разбира се, да открия някои интересни и сладки детайли, чието предназначение ще остане загадка за мен.

DDH_3793.jpg

Но хей, кой знае... Може да имам шанса някой ден да вляза в тази църква, а защо не, да присъствам на основната им неделна служба :)

DDH_3794.jpg

DDH_3795.jpg

Друг камък, друга история...

DDH_3795-2.jpg

DDH_3796.jpg

Една врата, това е вход към рая или убежище?

DDH_3797.jpg

Толкова спокойно място за почивка и покой...

DDH_3798.jpg

DDH_3799.jpg

DDH_3800.jpg

Кулата е била ремонтирана през 1957 г.

DDH_3801.jpg

Освен множеството малки прояви на Любовта, този ден най-ярките бяха молитвените ленти.

DDH_3802.jpg

Някои (си) пожелават здраве, а други изпращат послания към тези, които ни липсват много...

По целия път до улицата, покрита с Любов...

Благодаря за споделеното време!
