Murder in the Church!



It should have been just another informative Sylvanian Family Ragged Ramblers day out, as we wended our way to Great Dunham church, Norfolk...










It should have been a positive educational experience - a harmless piece of Antiquarian investigation, followed by tea and jelly in the car. However, this was destined to be a day touched with tragedy.
As your eyes shall see, the evil eyeless Binky paid a terrible price for his intrusion upon the Sylvanian's. It should have been us all singing in the car afterwards, not sitting in sullen silence, with Haylett's tiny body lying limp on the dashboard...


Following the discovery of Binky's flattened body, the rural sleuth, P.C. Badger went into action. Monty applied his forensic intelligence to the investigation, and in no time they were interrogating Elvin, who they themselves had caught fighting with Binky a few moments before the long eared psychopath's demise. Following this piece of deductive sleuthing, the defiant Elvin - "Yo muvverfuckers, leave the dude alone. I'm goin to tha Man. Tha Man'll kick yo sorry asses, dudes!" - was led away by P.C. Badger.

All the while, unnoticed, Haylett Owl slipped off and flew the short distance to the nearby Chief Executive's Oak in Money Maker Woods. It was there that Mr. Many Coats and I found her sad little carcass swaying lifeless in the branches. We will never know her thoughts. Had she played some part in Binky's demise - was it fOwl play? Or, perhaps, racked with guilt, she had slunk off and decided to end it all...

  3. I see that P.C Badger brought his faithful sniffer dog, Flint. Surely with Badger, Flint and the big brained Monty on the case the offender will soon be brought to book.

  4. Having pondered this matter some more, I feel compelled to say that it is a tragedy that someone should have done such a thing in this beautiful setting. Further more, I urge all of our readers to put it from their minds and simply enjoy this fine church at Great Dunham via the link so thoughtfully inserted into the posting by Munro Tweeder-Harris.

  6. Dear Mr. Many Coats,

    Alas, I'm afraid I shall never be able to forget...

    However, I do concur with you entirely that our Reader should go and experience this lovely place in person (if possible, avoiding 'prune face', mentioned by Simon Knott in his write-up).

    Huzzah!
