Thanks for your answer to 'Good food and wine'. Definitely need too check this area out :-)

    My map doesn't extend that far so I have done a 'google walk' - of the area you have suggested - this is now definitely on my list!

What can I say, mate?

For various reasons I will not bore you with I have not been on VT for a few days which is a rarity for me as you know. From previous answers it seem the December weather did not "shine" on you but then it was unlikely to. If it is any small consolation, it has been ball-freezing in the place of your birth and the drizzle has just started again.

I see from previous responses that you were keeping a couple of bottles warm, good man, I am always impressed by your behaviour! I do hope you had a great day and have loads planned up for the forthcoming 365 days (can't be a leap year in '17, can it?).

Best to you and your good lady and hopefully we shall speak soon.

    Like yourself I've walked and driven past it so many times, that it has become a blur on the memory. Googling it brought back some inklings but it looks like many other churches in the area, and visiting or entering churches when I was a kid just didn't happen. Quite a bit of info there on the 'net about St Anne's and the pyramid. Hope the head is feeling better, so have a great time over the (festive) season. We're off to Costa Rica at the end of January so our paths may cross somewhere in the interim.

    Cheers mate,<br/><br/>I'm fine thanks. I think the reason it looks so similar to so many others in the East End (even down to Greenwich) is that it is a Hawksmoor and you really cannot mistake his style. St. George's in the East, Christ Church, Spitalfields, St. Alfege's, Greenwich etc. etc. Perhaps it is some sort of inherent childlike inquisitiveness but it gave me inordinate pleasure to "discover" this place I had passed by so many times as you have.<br/><br/>Have a great time in CR, I have to say I have central America very firmly fixed on the radar, probably Panama on the recommendation of a Canadian friend. Have a great festival (whatever you choose to celebrate or not at all but there will be no avoiding it in France) and we shall speak soon,<br/><br/>fergy.
