Named after St Thomas the Martyr, an Archbishop of Canterbury, who was murdered in his own Cathedral in 1170. This building was started in 1288 by orders of Edward I, and was built out of stone from Caen in Normandy and marble from the west of Sussex. Winchelsea which is on the Sussex coast was an important town and port and therefore at risk of attack. In approximately 1360 the nave, trancepts and tower were burnt to the ground during French raids some of the original stonework but not much else remains. In this image you can clearly see the remains of that part of the building.

Making an effort to return to AM3 after a bit of an absence, it's really nice to see photo's from all contributors and I will try to comment when I can. If I offer criticism I do so only to help and I do not wish to cause offence. My photography tends to be from my travels, as well as my passion which is wildlife and landscape. I hope you enjoy what you see.
Thanks for your comments I'm really grateful for them and welcome constructive feedback.
