Photographer's Note

While strolling the streets of Alnwick, the dramatic clouds and light drew me to enter the churchyard. St. Michael is the parish church of Alnwick and is built in the Perpendicular style of the 15th century. Its origins date back to the time of William the Conqueror, but the present structure was restored by Henry VI in 1464. Several superb Victorian glass windows were later added.

Alnwick is an important traditional border market town that is dominated by its huge castle which constitutes the ancient home of the Dukes of Northumberland. The name of the town is derived from the Anglo-Saxon "farm on the River Aln."
