Update: I'm sure anyone who reads this blog knows Dale Stewart and about the bad car crash he was in last weekend. I'm in contact with him and he is in good spirits. He'll be undergoing a fourth surgery at a different hospital tomorrow. I wish him all the luck in the world.

Dale Stewart (aka BWBandy on his blog "The view from here") was in a bad car accident this past weekend. He is pretty banged-up but currently in stable condition in the hospital. It will be a long road to recovery. Wish him well.
The accident was no fault of his own.

Tucked into a dense grove of trees is Saint Aidan and Saint Hilda Anglican Church and Cemetery.
The church was originally constructed of logs in 1910 with a belfry on the front corner of the building. In 1914 a vestry was added, and three years after that, the original belfry was dismantled and a prominent central porch entrance and belfry was built.
Also of note in the early years were the addition of horizontal tongue-in-groove boards to cover the interior walls and horizontal drop-siding on the outer walls. As it now stands, you'd never know is was of log construction. And something of a personal favourite is the cedar shake roof...a little something that adds a touch of charm to this handsome historical building.
And last but not least, and as is seldom the case, the church was established before the cemetery with the earliest burial in 1912.
