A good number of members turned up this morning even through we had heavy rain yesterday.  The weather was mixed.  All said, we had a very productive day.

All Saints Church, Crondall – 29/08/2017

Great weather and friendly staff at the church and it’s newly opened tea room.  The church has history back to the early 13th Century.  I was showed the lamb holding the lamp above the alter.  The Explorer Tea Room on the church premises offers excellent freshly cut sandwiches and cakes with very reasonable price.  We have a very good day.

Portchester – 16/08/2017

A fine day.  There were many visitors around both inside and outside the castle boundary wall.

St Mary Church Portchester was built in the 1120’s within the grounds of Portchester Castle.  The caretaker of St Mary Church was such a nice man.  He saw me sketching and offered to move his car from the front of the church without being asked.  He told me the gate in front of the church is called lych gate and was used at burials for sheltering a coffin until the clergyman’s arrival.  A bit of education.
