better angels

Mother is 91

Well a while back in May, but we were away, so finally took her out to lunch in Grundisburgh where she polished off a huge pork chop with rhubarb and apple mash, then sticky toffee pudding.

We wandered over to the village church afterwards, where mother gathered detailed information as usual.  The 14th century wall painting is of St Christopher carrying Christ across the river.  Old guy told us that is where the name came from, "Christ over" but even he admitted it was possibly a dodgy derivation. The hammer beam roof has angels if you look carefully.
