Here we are in the heart of Lovejoy country. Entirely a Suffolk church I suppose (we are less than a mile from the border), and not terribly attractive perhaps with its low chancel and blockish tower. But the setting makes up for all that, of course, with the Hall, and the woods, and the sheep, and the cottages. I thought this church was very interesting, particularly the wall paintings. It was almost entirely dark inside, and so it was only when I got home that I could really see what they were - very fine indeed. I loved the stone flags as well, shame about the carpets over them.
