    1. April 2005 -  Michael Kretzmer writes  - "these pictures were shot on Hi-8 film about 12 years ago (hence the rather poor quality) on a typically cold and sunny winter's day. There is natural sound on most of the shots. I regret not taking more shots of Leonora Kibel's beautiful stained glass windows but at least these pictures may serve as a reminder of how beautiful the place was."
