Serendipity

Serendipity! One of the Society members favourite words. 


We recently visited the the spectacular church of St Agnes, Cawston in Norfolk. Munro had been here previously on a number of occasions, but this was Thadeus' first visit. 


We entered the church in the last afternoon gloom with the diagonal sleet on our backs. Inside, the church was lit and full of activity as members of the local community busied themselves decorating the church in readiness for the Christmas service. Due to the unsolicited kindness of the volunteers, we were delighted to be offered the opportunity to climb the stone spiral staircase and gain a spectacular view of the church from the balcony located in the west tower. We were also able to see the lovely hammer-beam angel roof from a new angle...




Huzzah!

  1. A fantastic view of the 'ghost' of the rood (Saxon word for 'cross') on the chancel wall.

    The light, the atmosphere, the beauty, the majesty of this amazing building really did it for me. Huzzah for Ragged Rambling - Huzzah!
