This post is Part II of a series of posts that was inspired by my friend Patti who first chased down steeples in her town of Ansonia. I posted Part I on Friday just in case anyone missed it and would like to scroll down. I'm not exactly sure how many parts there will be in this series, I guess it all depends on how many steeples I manage to chase down here in Norwich and perhaps the surrounding countryside!
In my own humble opinion, New England has always been home to many, many beautiful churches so no doubt there are churches and steeples galore to be photographed but I can guarantee you that I won't be getting to all of them! Perhaps there will be some other New Englanders out there inspired to photograph and post a Steeplechase or two of their own ... or maybe even in other parts of the country? Hint, hint!
First up today is this very small little church that I found tucked away on Park Street ...
This is the National Spirtualist Church of Norwich and it comes complete with a cute little steeple and bell ...
I found this next church located on Convent Avenue behind the picturesque Saint Mary's Roman Catholic Church that I featured in my first Steeplechase post. This is Saint Nicholas Orthodox Church which I never even knew existed until I went out taking pictures!
I'm not sure if there's a bell tucked away inside this steeple but I really like the cross on the top!
The last church of today's post is the First Congregational Church of Norwichtown located near Meetinghouse Rocks across from the historic Norwichtown Green ...
I've actually been inside this church when attending the wedding of a friend back in 2002 but I had completely forgotten that it didn't have the traditional spire-style steeple until I went to take pictures! There is a lovely gold weather vane located at the top of this tower.
That's it for today's "Steeplechase"; I'll have Part III up sometime this week but in the meantime I'm going to go chase down a hamburger, hot dog, and potato salad over at Jason & Amy's as it's a beautiful day and I actually don't have to go to work for once on a Sunday - woohoo!
Everyone have a great day and I hope I've inspired you to chase down some steeples of your own!
