I cheated slightly, got a lift up to the far end of the village, then walked back, so it was only a mile. However, the landscape was very different from yesterday. This is the domestic bit of the village, where successive generations built out along the main road and in parallel to it. So I started in the late 1990’s, worked my way back through the 1960’s, with a hat tip to the “new school”, now the local primary, back between the wars to the allotments and the rec. The weather is still sufficiently murky that even the most hardened skateboarders weren’t tempted to show their skills on the floodlit ramp, and courting couples weren’t lurking on the field. Back past the old bakery, set at right angles and back from the main road, and then it was a return to the old village where the (newish) rectory and church may be found.
I went into church to say Evening Prayer and thought you might enjoy some of our Christmas decorations. I’ve never shared a church with a reindeer before.
