Paula’s back with her black and white Sunday challenge, and ‘Traces of the past’, will be a regular theme as it’s so popular – I love it!
I found these figures in a little church, St Mary the Virgin, in the village of Uffculme, Devon. The church was probably founded in Saxon times, but first gets mentioned in a charter of 1136. The figures are in 17th century costume.
Paula is always happy to have people join in with her challenge, pop over and see her!

This has intrigued me so much that I gave it a tour via Google map. The one photo of the inside does not show the figures you so mysteriously displayed. I am happy that they allow taking photos inside the church. This is wonderful, Gilly. Many thanks for playing.
What a photo! Fascinating.
What a great find, Gilly!
They look really peaceful there. 🙂
Such a great shot! Perfect for traces of the past 😃
You’ve been busy-beeing again. 3 posts in 1 day while I’m still thinking about it 🙂 🙂 Nice characters!
I do like a nosy inside a church. These effigies are most unusual, do you know any more about them?
You probe into every corner of the world. Thank you for this one. I’m always impressed by old churches – not a feature of Australia. And then I remember Aboriginal traces.
Fascinating. Would never have guessed Uffculme has in Devon!
