The gentle glow of ochre coloured walls.

There is nothing better than a medieval church untouched by the hands of the Victorians, free of Ritualistic and Tractarian idealism.  There is nothing better than a church that retains many medieval fittings, shadows of former things and of genuine patterns of worship, overlaid with layer upon layer of post-medieval furnishings fitted to the reformed liturgy.  Rails for kneeling communicants cutting across the sedilia of medieval clergy.

Thompson in Norfolk is such a place.  A mighty church refounded as a collegiate church by the de Shardelow family in 1349 and with grand medieval fittings to match, sitting side by side with post medieval woodwork, all now gently decaying under the glow of gentle ochre coloured walls.  Enjoy
