Above photo is of what's left of the old duck decoy near the Church.
Inside one of the windows is the above celtic strapwork stone. Another similar piece of stone is built into the outside of the tower. Don't know when this stone was cut; probably somewhere between the seventh and ninth centuries we are told (by the same well informed locals). It's obviously a piece of reused stone from an earlier Church. After Church we motored over to Copdock where a couple of antique fairs are held on the first Sunday of the month. Combed both of them (one in the village hall and the other in a nearby hotel). Made only one purchase, a piece of late eighteenth century pewter; but I am very pleased with it. Home and a late lunch. Spent the rest of the day in my workshop, getting a few more pieces ready for Wednesday's Long Melford Antique Fair. Got another treen bowl to wax polish, then it's bedtime.
