Some time before this I had become aware of a church in Hythe which contained, in a crypt, a rather large collection of bones and skulls - in excess of 2000 skulls and 8000 thigh bones. I had seen some images of this and from the moment I first found out about it I knew I had to see this for myself and take some photographs.
From that moment on I could not wait for my chance to visit this fascinating place. As the time approached I contacted the church in advance to check times and that all would be Ok to take some photographs. all was well and I was made aware of a church party due that day so I knew what time frame I had to take shots of the church itself.
The church in question is : St. Leonards in Hythe, kent : Link here
Here you can read all about the bones and theories of their origins.
I found it a very fascinating place to visit and to photograph. I edited the images a couple of days ago and found, very much to my surprise, that I was more affected by the images than actually seeing the skulls "in the flesh" (excuse the unfortunate choice of words). It seemed more gruesome seeing the images and I actually did have some discomfort in the pit of my stomach. I found this quite strange and surprising.
Anyway time to share the images:
