St Peter's Palgrave

 I think more church visiting might have to wait until the weather warms up and the days are brighter because Palgrave St Peters was freezing and gloomy.  Inside I tried flash which reflected back but without it couldn't see much at all.

Very impressed by the gardens each side of the path, shows that they have lots of people caring for their church.


 Anyway here are the photos I took.

 The reason this church gets a mention in the 100 treasures book is because of its C15 painted hammer-beam roof but on a dull day it looked like this. The colours didn't show up at all. It would have had carved angels too........on the bits that jut out......... but they must have been sawn off during one of the periods when churches had to remove all symbols of  Catholic worship.



 Down the nave to the altar


 A square font- very unusual and very old......800 years they say.


 Commandment boards would have been over the altar. They were restored in the 1960s and are now in the North aisle.


This modern stained glass was designed in 1995 by a local artist


This looks like an old coat of arms. It doesn't say on the Suffolk Churches website if it for someone local or the royal coat of arms that churches had to display at one period in history.It was too high and not light enough to read the inscription.


All the pews have little gates, not the high box pews I've seen in some churches. These wouldn't have protected from many cold draughts (or drafts if you are in the US) so not sure why they are there.



Palgrave is a village just outside Diss and in Medieval times was two parishes with two churches but Palgrave St John has long gone.

*****************************

Thank you for all the comments yesterday about The Flower Fairy books. Yes the Snowdrop Fairy is in the book I found last week and it is odd, as Phillip said, about the interest in Fairies in this period. I don't think I would want to do one in X stitch - far too fiddly but I did have some decoupage sheets of some of the fairies in the past and they too were not really suited to cutting out and layering.
Because I didn't have many books as a child I only knew about this author when I started working in libraries. The four tiny books in my picture were found at a Jumble sale or charity book sale in the last few years. They have just 7 fairies in each book and are printed on thin card pages, they will be passed on to the 2  granddaughters very soon I think. Just the right size for small hands.

  1. I do love modern stained glass. All the vibrancy and, somehow, more approachable and 'friendly'.

  6. Re the Flower Fairy books --mine is from when I was about 6 (74 now) and Its quite worn on the cover from holding it -- I loved it as a child we lived in peaceful Henham, and we had a very rural life, lots of walks with my dog, looking at wild flowers, and I remember as a child curling up in a old armchair with a blanket daydreaming about fairies. The book conjures up a lot of childhood memories. It will be passed to my grand daughter. Jean/Winnipeg

  8. That looks like a lovely church! I bet those gardens will look absolutely fantastic in spring/summer. It would be well-worth another visit.

  10. Such a joy to see the gardens kept so beautifully, so many these days are overgrown. A joy to see the stained glass although if I am honest I am never sure I have an understanding of what they are trying to portray.

  11. I think your coat of arms might be a funerary hatchment. When you can "read" them [which I can't] you can learn quite a bit about the person whose death they mark https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Funerary_hatchment A friend told me about them when I first saw one. Arilx

    1. Thank you for that info, it was too gloomy to see it properly and it probably needs a good clean too

  12. The approach to the church is very attractive, shame about the lack of light, the roof looks very interesting. A pleasure deferred, perhaps!
