  1. John, I am just nuts about ancient British churches. Here is the history of that marvelous little church from British History online. And yes, the north side of the church is 11th century. Fabulous.

    I remember years ago visiting st Martin the Fields, and a string quartet was practicing in the church for the next service. I honestly thought, if God exists, he is here. Cheers, BT
