The remains of St Peter’s Church 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿 // The church dates to around the twelfth century. According to Le Fleau des D’Mons et Sorciers (Jean Bodin 1616) Stantonbury, the area in which St Peter’s stands, was subject to werewolf panic from 1485. In 1520, Thomas Pipe was accused of being a werewolf and was taken to St Peter’s and an exorcism was carried out by two priests. Pipe was said to have writhed and snarled, whilst cursing the village; stating that the church building would ‘crumble to dust’. Apparently Pipe let out a howl and subsequently died after this ordeal // I stumbled across this site whilst in the area and then researched the church later. The story is a little far fetched, but I still found it interesting //

This is the Chapel of St. Fergus, a ruined kirk in Dyce (about 6 miles northwest of Aberdeen city centre)! This chapel is a medieval structure dating back to the 1200s; as the name suggests, it is dedicated to Saint Fergus - an 8th century Irish bishop who worked as a missionary in Scotland! Surrounding the chapel is an old burial ground/graveyard that was used into the 20th century, but is no longer in use now! Incredibly, this ruined kirk actually houses a collection of carved stones (known as the ‘Dyce Symbol Stones’), all of which are over 1000 years old!! These stones are Pictish stones! They were carved by the Picts, a tribal confederation of peoples who occupied northern and eastern Scotland during the Late Iron Age and Early Middle Ages! They are famous for repelling the conquests of the Romans and ensuring that the north of Scotland never fell under the control of the Roman Empire! In fact, the Romans referred to the fierce tribes of northern Scotland as the ‘picti’, Latin for “painted ones”; this was in reference to the fact that Pictish warriors had a custom of tattooing their bodies with war paint! Obviously ‘picti’ is where the name ‘Pict’ derives from! The Pictish stones, now kept under a wooden shelter inside the chapel, were found in and around the churchyard; they date from the 7th to 9th centuries! I will show you the stones and talk about them more in my next post! . . . . . . . . #amazingscotland #visitscotland #lovescotland #unlimitedscotland #scotland #scottishhistory #churchruins #chapel #instascotland #picts #pictish #architecture #oldbuildings #thisisscotland #igscotland #bonniescotland #exploringscotland #visitabdn #aberdeen #churchyard #scottishoutdoors #ilovescotland

There is just something about the trees on the east coast that makes me crazy. The first engagement session of 2019 is a wrap and I could not be happier. This is going to be a good year. . . . #sdphotographs #2019weddings #engagementsession #savannahweddings #blufftonsc #oaktrees #mightyoak #spanishmoss #eastcoastweddings #southernfriedphotographers #southernwedding #ruins #churchruins #tribearchipelago

It’s a ruin of a church after earthquake in @antiguaenguatemala We spent Q40 each person to enter it and climbed on the ruins to take photos. So hot, but the images look pretty good! We seem so small in the ruin, we seem too small when we face the power of nature. #travel #travelphotography #travelcentralamerica #guatemala #antiguaguatemala #repuestoslarecoleccion #ruins #remains #churchruins #backpacker #backpackerstory @wetravelerswe ————————🇬🇹 🇬🇹 🇬🇹—————🇬🇹 🇬🇹 🇬🇹 一個小小遺跡入場門票約台幣160,裏頭真的就是照片裡的斷垣殘壁。 如果覺得花160進去看這些有點心疼的話,不妨帶上一些食物飲料,看完遺跡拍完魍魅照後,可坐在有樹蔭的草地上舒服地野餐唷😉 #中南美流浪記 #背包旅行 #背包客 #瓜地馬拉 #安地瓜 #安地瓜古城 #教堂遺跡

Today's favourite photo from 2018 is of Holy Trinity Church in Buckfastleigh. Only the shell of the building remains after a devastating fire in 1992 but it is still beautiful 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #buckfastleigh #buckfastleighchurch #holytrinitychurch #holytrinityruins #church #churchruins #hauntedplaces #abandonedplaces #abandoned_world #southdevon #livingeurope #europe_pics #beautifulbritain #photosofbritain #lovegreatbritain #uktravel #ukexplore #traveling_uk #bestukpics #raw_uk #photocollective #justgoshoot #foto #moody_grams #moodytones #discoverdevonuk #lovedevon #SouthWestIsBest #lovesouthdevon #instatravel

Cyprus Tour, Agios Sozomenos. A deserted village just outside Nicosia. One of the most impressive buildings in the vicinity is undoubtedly the ruined 16th century Gothic church of Agios Mamas with its imposing arches, a site which was never in fact finished to begin with. #cyprus #cyprusisland #cyprusinsider #insidecyprus #insightcyprus #enjoycyprus #ig_cyprus #lovecyprus #explorecyprus #heartcyprus #cypruspassion #desertedvillage #gothicchurch #churchruins #agiossozomenos
