St Bridget's Church, West Kirby

This is just one of the many Celtic crosses found within the peaceful graveyard around St Bridget's Church in West Kirby, Wirral.  This particular stone caught my attention due to the rich symbolism carved into it, which expresses the fusion of both the Viking and Celtic cultural influences of the area's long history.

With clouds of pink cherry blossom draping over the ancient, leaning gravestones, and pale yellow primroses growing like jewels scattered in the grass, I thought spring would be the perfect time to photograph this place, which can't really be seen from the road just beyond the perimeter walls.
