This delicate, sinuous staircase leads to the west gallery at St Cynhaearn, Ynyscynhaearn (pronounced Unnesscunnhairn) in Gwynedd which sits on the former island in Llyn Ystumllyn at the end of an ancient causeway. Inside, the church appears to be a complete late Georgian interior, but, of course, there was an earlier church on the site.

When it comes to supporting traditional craftspeople and their skills, we put our money where our mouth is. This gorgeous handmade cast-iron plaque was specifically designed to complement the setting of the Chapel at Matlock Bath. The designer studied other local fingerposts, signs and place-markers before setting to work on this. With its invisible green finish, we think it’s perfect. #derbyshire #metalwork #heritage

This is a cartoon (full size model drawing) of St Helen and St Cedd, for new stained glass windows by Ben Finn at Wickham Bishops church in Essex. The church (set to be demolished before we intervened) is Ben's studio and extensive geometric C14 wall-paintings were uncovered there several years ago. We installed some new plain-glass windows during our repairs, but are delighted that Ben is working on some new stained-glass windows for the church - inspired by his place of work. #essexchurches #stainedglass

All the best Mondays start off with a bat in your inbox... This delightful brown long-eared bat was recorded last weekend at Castlemartin church - which since 2013 has played an important role in training ecological consultants #MondayMotivation #bats

Immediately next to the church at Castlemartin are the remains of the vicarage. This medieval cottage was adapted in its later years to be a school for 21 local children before returning to a cottage in the late 19th century. It was abandoned in about 1900 and fell into total ruin. Thankfully many of the small carvings remain, as here, little faces peeking through the ivy. #churchcrawling #churchinwales #savingchurches

"I always knew the Friends was a special organisation. From the exotic, evocative name, to the gentle way its churches are repaired. Even from the outside, it seemed like a labour of love."

Continuing our theme of elegant Georgian church interiors - this sinuous staircase leads to the west gallery at Ynyscynhaearn church #Gwynedd. Inside, the church is a complete late Georgian interior, but, of course, there was an earlier church on the site

Wickham Bishops was to be demolished before we intervened - now it's the workshop of Ben Finn who, inspired by the C14 wallpaintings uncovered there, is designing this new stained glass to replace the plain glazing put in as part of our repair #newlife #oldchurches #Fridayfeeling https://t.co/Nvd4cD2cSI friendschurches photo

St Cybi with his ox in a tiny light in the porch at Penmorfa St Beuno's church - said to be the work of Joan Howson and to date from between the Wars. @BSMGP #SaintsAndTheirAnimals #AnimalsInChurches #eglwys #church #art #stainedglass #SacredWales #ArtsandCrafts #Gwynedd #Wales https://t.co/xZDmiU6VXo friendschurches photo
