1. St. Peter’s Church, April 2011. My one and only visit to the county town of Dorchester in Dorset was a fleeting one! It was my old friend Ad’s wedding weekend and I’d flown over from Amsterdam to join the festivities. Basing myself at The Sydney Arms Pub on St. Thomas , I found myself with just one morning to discover a bit of the town before heading off to the big event. Stop one on my whistle-stop tour was this imposing fifteenth century church located right on the high street. Architecturally there’s a pleasing mix of new and old, from the grotesque gargoyles scowling across the exterior, to the shiny glass sliding doors at the entrance.
