In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Symmetry.” 

 Im sorry if this is a little unsymmetrical but the facade intrigued me. The church is in the grounds of Witley Court a derelict stately home which was destroyed by fire in 1937.

In 1735 the 2nd Lord Foley constructed the church an undertaking begun by his father. The church was given a remarkable baroque interior in 1747 when he commissioned James Gibbs to incorporate paintings and furnishings acquired at the auction of the contents of Cannons House. This was the magnificent Middlesex home of the Duke of Chandoys from where the artwork was shipped by canal to Great Witley.

The grounds and parklands on the estate are beautiful and there is a serenity and a sense of peace which makes a welcome change in our 24 / 7 lifestyles.

I took this last summer with my Iphone so I apologise if its not unto the usual standard of photographs in this challenge, but I thought I would share it anyway.
