Well... well, I enjoyed it. :shifty:
How often do we get to see inside these religious buildings? Even if some of us "couldn't care less" about other religions it's always interesting having a look round their buildings.
We do? I haven't. :dunno:We see the history of the Bullring all the time anyway. :sleepy:
They say we are welcome to visit but how many of us will? As you found with your experience of the mosque, I can't imagine these buildings are quite as open as the likes of Lichfield or Worcester cathedrals where you simply walk in off the street. That's cos they're tourist destinations in their own right as well as places of worship.
However, I'd probably go if there was a group of us cos I don't like people following me round as it is!
The footage of the old Bull Ring was some of the first I had seen for a long time. I have only ever learned about the Bull Ring through books and loads of drawings. It continues to fascinate me.The Bullring is one of the places you do see all the time as it was such a big project. There's old footage-galore of it and although I never saw it before the new construction I certainly know how it looked!
I briefly thought that church was the one here in Sedgley - even the lightning conductor running down the side is similar.
St Edburgha wasn't even a saint. Edburgha is actually Alfred the Great's grand daughter! It was built by Aston Church, which is odd considering Yardley was a possession of Pershore Abbey at the time.Who was St. Edburga(s)?? He obviously didn't have such an impact on the world as St. Paul. :lol:
Well I actually had a Buddhist friend who knew of the temple and he said 50% of the time they will let you in to the temple. Sometimes they are suspicious or busy so are unable to. So I may have just been lucky at that time.Do you just turn up at temples and just walk in? How did you find out about the temple in the house? Did you go with school/college? Sorry so many questions, it's just been something I've wanted to do for years to visit other religious buildings. :yes:
