Hubberholme, Upper Wharfedale

Whilst supporting my son's team on the 100km Oxfam Trailtrekkers I had little time to think about photography, but I occasioned upon St. Michael and All Angels Church in the little hill Hamlet of Hubberholme in Upper Wharfedale. I'd been there once before, many years ago but remembered very little. A few shots of a charming little church which started life as a forest chapel in the 12th Century. Weather very mizzly with poor light:




The small door visible in the above photograph:





The interior showing the 16th century Rood Screen, taken with on-board flash:





The Rood Screen:





Towards the base of the tower (a bit worried about that crack!):





The pews were all made by Thompson of Kilburn ("Mousey Thompson")and several show his mark of a carved mouse:





In the hills above Hubberholme there is an interesting cross next to an old field barn. It has an inscription obviously carved during the reign of Queen Victoria and perhaps the cross is of the same age or may be older:




E5 + Leica 14-150mm


C&C welcome

David

Re: Hubberholme, Upper Wharfedale

You have a nice collection of shots there David. It is a shame the sky was not more interesting on the day. Perhaps a return visit would be worthwhile?

Just one or two points of interest. Firstly, it is unlikely that a church of this age would have been named St. Michael and All Angels, as this name was not used until about 1900 I believe. (I can find the actual date if it is of interest.) Before this time the name would either have been St. Michael the Archangel, or just plain St. Michael's. However, many people get this wrong, and just assume that any church called St. Michael's is St. Michael and All Angels! Indeed, it is entirely possible that the PCC has had it wrong for a long time!

Secondly, the crack in the tower is not unusual, as buildings of this age were often built with minimal foundations, so the slightest movement in the soil will cause alarming cracks. At one time churches would just be rebuilt as and when they fell down, resulting in much of the interesting ecclesiastical architecture that we enjoy today.

Thirdly, the small door on the south side was probably provided for the Priest. Doors on the north side (opposite the main south door) are sometimes called the Devil's Door, and at one time would have been opened during services to let the devil out! For the same reason medieval churches tend not to have burials on the north side as this was regarded as the 'Devil's Side'

I have just taken a look at the map, and have worked out that Hubberholme is only an hour's drive away. The lunch menu at the George also looks very good. I think I might have a visit there myself before the school summer holidays start.

I'd definitely go and hope you get some good skies so you can get some good shots of the area. I've not eaten in the George so I can't comment but the whole valley including Langstrothdale is a lovely area in any weather. You won't be disappointed.
