This lunchtime we decided to go to our favourite farm shop restaurant to eat, but when we got there it was crowded - not a parking place to be had on the car park - recently enlarged, and the restaurant was crowded anyway, we think because it's the last few days of the school holidays, so we motored on to Lindsey, a nearby village. There used to be two pubs there, the Red Rose (above) and the White Rose, which is now a private house. Although it was now nearly one o'clock the pub was very quiet (only one other customer when we went in). The barmaid said that she could serve us food, so we ordered, collected a drink and went and sat down in a window seat. We'd both ordered gammon, and greens, with a poached egg and chips, and when it arrived it was excellent. After lunch we decided that we'd not looked at Milden Church for some years, so went to find it. It's only a mile or so from Lindsey, but we got ourselves rather lost in the lanes.
This was no real problem because we were able to take the next few photos of Suffolk houses from the car windows.
Above is the Church we were looking for, and it was well worth the search. It is tiny, but feels bigger inside than looks possible from the outside.
Various interesting contents inside the church, mainly still in use. We both quite liked the look of this old chap/gentleman.
Got home about four p.m. since when I've been pottering in the workshop and generally getting ready for the Long Melford Antique Fair, which takes place tomorrow, and means a very early start, So -
