memories of the earth

One of the nice things about visiting churches in the UK with my mom is the history. In this church, like many others, there is a list of vicars and rectors. As I recently listened to an audio book copy of “Pillars of the Earth” by Ken Follet, I noted that Andreas, the first rector of this church, would have been a fairly close contemporary of Prior Phillip. Perhaps this church had its own Tom and Jack Builder, its own Aliena, Richard and dreaded William Hamleigh. As I took this photo I listened incase echoes of their voices could still be heard in the soft echoes between the arches of the nave.
