High Tea

What better way to spend an afternoon - meeting friends for high tea at The Old Church. It was a greyish afternoon but this grand building looked so inviting. Click on the name and then "About Us" to learn the history of this building, its very interesting.

After years living in the north of England I thought I knew what a high tea was. Although the above spread was advertised as such it was actually a very delicious afternoon tea. Many different small cakes, scones, sandwiches and a very good cheese board. Pretty china teacups with an equally pretty teapot steaming with your choice of leaf tea.

We left around 5pm when dusk was falling and the lights were on so couldn't resist this photo from above, of the extremely large chandelier.
No doubt about it - this place has a lot of atmosphere.
