Nassington again

It turns out that the Parish Church is quite as special as the Prebendal Manor which we had gone to see.  Although not as extensive as those at Pickworth (which is actually not that far away), the mediaeval wall painting include the top of the 'doom' on the nave's east wall and Our Lady doing her job tipping the scales in our favour (it is her rosary which she is using to do the job).

And a good part of a Saxon Cross has been recovered from a wall with a beautifully clear crucifixion on one side and knot-work on the other which might well have worn away had it been left in place outside, reminding us of being in west Cumbria a few years ago.
