St. Mary's Higham. cont

Hi folks,

I had a good response from yesterdays blog so I thought I would finish it off with a few more and a little bit of history.

This is a circa 1500 Parish Chest sitting on a Bier which is 20th century (used for transporting coffins).

This is the only parishioner listening to the poor man preaching, we loved her hat........

Look closely at the wildlife enjoying a meal on the hat.

The preacher looks quite happy even though he has straw head and hands!

In the field adjacent were various flowers.

including a few Poppies.

There was a vast expanse of wheat.

Hope you enjoyed a little bit about this lovely Church more information go to.....

Thanks for dropping by.

nite nite, luv Mike XX


  1. Sorry, I had a lot of trouble with the blog not being stable tonight and it crashed. I wanted to add more history but I had to abort,although the link will I hope copy and paste.

  2. I know what you mean Mike ... blogger is being really mean at the moment. I am launching a NEW blog (another crafty one) on the 1st ... hope it stops playing up!

    Love the figures in the church but I find them a little spooky! Just me I expect. Lovely post the countryside shot over the fields is lovely!
