In some churches a seven sacrament font like this would be enough on its own to justify a visit...
And when you look closely, some wonderful gesso work is revealed:
However, here at Westhall Church in Suffolk there are SO many treasures that a Ragged Rambler hardly knows where to start!
For instance, there's this stonking great Norman doorway with decorative surround...
Not to mention the lower panels of a fifteenth century rood screen
But it doesn't stop here...
Lovely ancient oak benches replete with compass drawn 'daisywheels'!
And talking of graffiti archaeology, here's a bearded man carved into the soft ashlar of one of the piers.
Oh yeh, there are medieval wall paintings as well.
Finally, as I returned to my flask I had a thought: do bats crap in their sleep?
