As the sun was sparkling despite the bracing wind, I nipped up the road , once said antiques had been suitably admired, to the church.
St Mary's has been around for 900 years, here's a spot of history.
I didn't realise Charles Kingsley of The Water Babies and Westward Ho fame had been a curate and Rector here. His wife was Frances 'Fanny' Grenfell. I wonder if she was related to Joyce - George, Don't do that - Grenfell?
Off to nearby Finchampstead Church - St James'. I didn't go inside but mooched about nearby until I was frozen.
