We had snow at the beginning of the week, but on Tuesday the sun came out and turned our villages into a winter paradise! Everyone came out to enjoy it and many took photos, which are simply beautiful. A real bright spot in a grim January and giving some wonderful memories of a perfect day!
Here are the photos, with some stunning views of St Peter’s and our sister church St Andrew’s in Tur Langton, but the real stars are the trees, especially the Copper Beech tree in Church Langton and, of course, the glorious blue sky.
Thank you to everyone who generously shared their photos and cheered us all up!
If you have photos of this lovely day, or other views of St Peter’s and surrounding countryside that you would like us to share on our gallery, please get in touch either on Facebook, or by emailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org, we would love to hear from you!
This stunning photo by James Cullen, really lifts the spirits after a dark week. The viewpoint from near to ground level reveals cyclamens in bloom, bringing with them the promise of Spring and hope for happier times to come.

We are delighted to announce that our Christmas Card for 2020 is in production and should be delivered to our villagers in the coming days.
This year, we have decided to change the cover image from a photograph to a painting and our artist is long-time Church Langton resident Tony Spencer. We thought you might like to see a little more of Tony’s work and find out a bit more about him, in his own words…
I’ve always loved drawing and painting ever since I was a kid and loved it even more at secondary school as you could use all the mediums; and my art teacher used to encourage you to try anything! My art teacher, bless her, wanted me to go to Art College, but in those days as the eldest son, you were expected to help put food on the table, so I missed out on that and started work age fourteen.
I suppose the two artists whose work I loved, were Turner and Constable. Turner with his majestic use of oils to paint ‘The Fighting Temeraire’ and Constable with his peaceul ‘Haywain’.
I love having a dabble with any medium but suppose I like pastels the best . As for my connection with Church Langton? Well I served twelve years in HM Forces and settled here in 1979 have been here since…
