Because they were smaller in those days...

As our Reader will appreciate, in ye olde days people were smaller. In fact, the further back in time you go the smaller those folks were. Ergo, the smaller the church the older it must be. Here we have a particularly ancient structure - certainly pre-Conquest! This is the original church now to be found within Thorington Church, Suffolk.

  1. I certainly do appreciate that, but I vividly remember my parents taking me to the Ideal Home Exhibition in some ghastly part of post-war London, and being given miniature Hovis loaves which would have completely stuffed the nave of your church there in Norfolk. Maybe I have just got smaller, but I remember Wagon Wheels to be about twice the size they appear to me now. A real paradox.
