We called here during Half Term; there seems little excuse not to pull off the A1 north of Peterborough given the opportunity to spend even a brief moment at Tickencote or Wansford (both almost on the A1 itself) or at Barnack or Stamford (including St Martin's, Stamford).

We had been recommended Barnack at the recent talk at Barton-on-Humber as providing a parallel example of a Saxon tower with this sort of decoration.

But we also found a pre-Conquest Christ in Majesty.

And one panel of a mediaeval Annunciation with the marvellous feature of the three persons of the Trinity being together behind the conception of the Lord.

And this nineteenth century grave of a nineteen year old Sandhurst cadet cut down in his prime.
