Sunday is for Church

[click image to enlarge]
This steeple at the Bethany Congregational Church has been hit by lightning on numerous occasions but those gargoyles seem to guard it from too much damage. Bees used to be kept here and honey harvested by a minister from another local church. This late Gothic Revival church was built in 1927 by J.William Beal & Sons.

Those really ARE huge gargoyles. Huge and protruding like they will take flight.

Great looking tower.

Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment. I'm glad you visited Carlton Ward, Jr.'s website. His photography is superb.
