A BREAK in West Devon from her home in 'The Windy City' impressed visitor Eloise Smith.

She took up her camera and photographed many scenes in and around Sampford Courtenay parish.

Eloise, from Chicago, Illinois, was so impressed with what she experienced here that she turned 100 of her photographs into greetings cards.

She sent some to Sampford Courtenay's St Andrew's Church to sell in aid of the church bell fund, and some to St Mary's Church, Honeychurch, for their general church funds.

The photos include many pictures of the church interiors, including bosses, the old plough on Plough Sunday and village scenes, and are available for purchase in both churches.
