Six months past I wrote about Sarah Losh, creator of a singular church in Cumbria to her own design and decoration.   It turns out to be larger or rather taller than one would expect from photos, and the interior scheme less coherent  than I supposed, insofar as the fittings and decoration are assembled in a rather piecemeal fashion, although the architecture is orderly.  
The picture of the nave shows one of two oversized carved pinecones that flank the aisle, and two carved angels simply stuck on the chancel arch.  But the total effect is intriguing, and the atmosphere very welcoming.  The church is well cared-for by the people of Wreay, with affectionate recognition of its oddity - a rich and ultimately baffling mix of traditional and idiosyncratic symbolism.
