St Mary’s Church, Worstead, Norfolk

 Worstead Village is famous for a make of wool, Worsted, brought to the country by Flemish weavers in centuries pass.   I came to look at the splendid Wool Church today, but I did find it difficult to get a full length photo, and this side of the church was in deep shadow, hence the black and white.  Again a reminder for me to do a full post.

  1. Ah! so this is where the famous worsted wool comes from! You do not hear about it as much now but there was a time when you would read about someone wearing some a garment made from” worsted.” They must have changed the spelling for the name of the fabric although it sounds the same.

    1. Yes, but it seems the village was called Worsted and then changed to Worstead, so confusing.. You can go on a tour of the village and see some of the weavers cottage etc, but we will have to do that another day 🙂 I have also put it right on the post, I didn’t notice and I even looked it up….. getting old 🙂
