Photograph of the Week

Photographed by Rex Needle
The Abbey Church prepares for Christmas
PHOTOGRAPHED ON TUESDAY 10th DECEMBER 2013

The Abbey Church will soon be alive with the sights and sounds of Christmas as hymns and carols from the choir, festive music from the organ and seasonal sermons from the pulpit echo around these hallowed walls where this town has worshipped for almost nine hundred years. The festive season brings with it a feeling of fellowship and goodwill to all men that is reflected in these celebrations for whether we believe in the story or not this is the time when families and friends gather to eat and drink, to exchange presents, forget past hurts and to sing of the holly and the ivy and the three kings bearing gifts who followed a star to witness an event long ago that was destined to change the world.

Readers are asked to submit their own pictures to be considered for our
Photograph of the Week feature. Read more.

PEEPS INTO THE PAST

The town centre has undergone dramatic changes in the past 100 years notably as a result of the increasing amount of traffic which has transformed North Street into a main through road where vehicle flows often cause lengthy delays.

Photographed circa 1920
