The annual heritage weekend is now underway. All over the country various buildings are open to the public. Yesterday I had a look around St Peter's Church in the centre of Nottingham. It's a very old building and some of it dates from 1140AD. I'm always amazed at the amount of work and detail that goes into the building of such places. The Bible appears to go on about living simply and without worldly goods etc, yet churches are full of gold, decoration, and were expensive to build. Here's one of the many stained glass windows that St Peter's contains. I wonder how long it took to make and how much it cost?
