The Old Church of St Stephen, Fylingdales, North Yorkshire
England

High on the hillside above the village of Robin Hoods Bay can be found the Old Church of St Stephen, Fylingdales. Built in 1822, the church is little changed from this time.

Its September 2011 and outside the remains of Hurricane Katia can be heard blowing. Around us can be seen the numbered box pews which would be used by families or individuals who paid a annual fee for there use. Above us can be seen the gallery with its organ, hanging from the gallery to the right of pew 25 can be seen the "maidens garlands", made from ribbon these would be carried at the funeral procession of a maiden of the district. On the opposite wall by the windows can be seen the "Three Decker Pulpit".

More About Europe

Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights. In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states. Text by Steve Smith.
