St Leonard's, Bengeo, Hertfordshire, 6 August 2023

This is a lovely grade 1 listed Norman church now on the very edge of Hertford's urban sprawl. On a wet evening I wasn't able to do the architecture justice but I did capture one of the medieval wall paintings.

The full band. Left to right Mat Green, Andy Turner, Ian Giles and Sophie Thurman. I am afraid that I couldn't get Jon into the frame. Magpie Lane playing at St Leonard's Bengo August 2023
