My eye was caught by a particularly impressive stone for one Mary, wife of Emanuel Cater Bull, a vetinary surgeon of Huntingdon, who passed away in 1840 aged 28 years. A little internet research showed that in 1873 Bull was to become the Mayor of Huntingdon.
Another stone, from the mid to late eighteenth century is also worth noting. This has seven cherubs on it, three to the left, three to the right, and one in the centre of the stone. A superbly crafted stone.
It was good to be able to see inside the church here as it is usually locked to visitors. It doesn't have the wow factor of neighbouring Buckworth or Alconbury and that doesn't matter at all. It is what it is, a small parish church in a small village with a wealth of history. As such it is to be treasured.
It had been a good day out and we headed back towards Peterborough by the unual circuitous route, taking in Hamerton and the three churches in the Giddings on the way as the sun as the sun was starting to set.
