I love these old medieval church chests, at one time they would have held all the church records, but thats going back about five hundred years ago.  Now this one is used for lovely Christmas decorations in St Peter’s Church in Walpole St Peter, Norfolk.  You will see a few more Christmas posts from this delightful church…….I took way too many last year, and I never like to waste photos 🙂

    1. Its amazing how they all seem to last, most churches have one, its something I haven’t really focused on, maybe I should. Pat can I ask who is the photo of the young child, its very intriguing 🙂

      1. That photo is from my great grandmother’s photo album. I can’t actually give you a name. It was probably taken in the late 1800’s. We have two albums from her. And I think we’re very lucky to have that. My love of photography goes back a long way! 🙂
