Brilliant walk from Weston Longville to Morton Hall and Morton on the Hill.
Began at All Saints’ Weston Longville – opposite the Parson Woodforde pub. The church had odd reminders of the diarist:
Lots more to see in the church :
A crucifixion from an earlier church built into the font base.
Several wall paintings
a Jesse Tree and the 2 St. Johns on either side of the chancel arch
The 15th century sedilia is such fun –
The way from Weston took us along an un-made up road.
In spite of the deregulation signs we kept going at about 3 m.p.h. There was time to consider the flowers on the way and when we got to Morton Hall.
The snowdrop walk and visit to St. Margret’s Church were by kind permission of Lady Prince-Smith. St. Margaret’s Church is beautiful with some Southwell memorials including a brass in remembrance of Katherine Awdley the sister of St. Robert Southwell hung drawn and quartered for celebrating a RC mass in Queen Elizabeth’e reign. We prayed –
A good lunch was shared at the Parson Woodforde afterwards. Enjoy a walk and thoughtful conversations on the way? Do join us on our monthly walks See…..
