The clock and bell-tower of the church of King Charles the Martyr, Tunbridge Wells. To answer Barrett Bonden's question, the church is dedicated to King Charles 1, the King of England executed in 1649 for his defiance of the English parliament. Because of his stand against the largely non-conformist parliamentarians, who led England's short lived revolution, he was canonised by the Church of England after the restoration of Church and monarchy in 1660. He was the last saint cannonised by the C of E.
A number of other churches were dedidicated to the new saint. The original chapel built in 1676 was enlarged to become the present church between 1688 -96.
Sunshine and the intense colours that come with it after days and days of grey skies seems almost miraculous.
There is something magical and deeply satisfying about the way yeast, mixed with flour and water to form a sponge as a preliminary to bread making, bubbles as it ferments like liquid lava inside a volcano.
