Been a good, busy week (so far). On Thursday we lunched with old friends of ours who live near Lavenham. Telling John (who is a keen gardener) about the wild violets in flower in our garden. John then took me into his garden and showed me, in a sheltered corner, primroses in flower !!! It's been a weird autumn.
On Friday morning, which was a lovely, mild, sunny morning had a walk through Saint Mary's Churchyard, and took these three snaps.
The Church above has the second longest nave in Suffolk (which is a county of fine, large churches). The longest nave in Suffolk beats us by about three and a half inches (I'm told - I've never measured them!)
The above and below object has TWO commonly used names, one of them is rather misleading. Can you tell me both of them, please. And also, what it is, where it was made, when it was made, and any other details you can see from the two pictures.
I foresee rather a busy few days ahead, but I will answer any comments on the 'Mystery Object' whenever I find a few minutes to spare.
