St Wystan's, Repton

St Wystan's, Repton
Made by Rich Johnson
The saxon crypt of St Wystan's in Repton, Derbyshire. The crypt was built in the 8th century as a mausoleum for the Mercian royal family. After some time down here it comes as something close to a shock to come back up the steps and surface in the twenty-first century. A tip of the hatlo hat to Mr Colin Barnes who, not for the first time, pointed out what was under my nose. This one of the three photos was lit by three candles and a smidge of daylight. (This time, my mother said What is it with you and crypts, anyway?)
